GothenburgStockholm may get all the attention, but Gothenburg gets the students. And this university town is practically vibrating with youthful energy. Here, hip cafes in artistic districts like Vasastan, Haga, and Linné overflow with creativity, while the fashion crowd buzzes about the shop-lined Östra Hamngatan. Of course, Gothenburg hotels also fill up with folks who come for boat trips down the Göta River, which runs through the city, or to take in the city’s grand old canals, lovely parks, verdant gardens, or one its many fine museums, such as Konstmuseet.
There’s something else to be said for having one of Europe's largest student populations: Not only does everyone seem as if they might be up for anything at the drop of hat, but prices tend to be much lower than in Stockholm—good news that keeps hotels in Gothenburg filled with adventurous spirits not snobs.
