After the movie

The Bishop’s Arms
Right across Järntorget you’ll find The Bishop’s Arms, which aside from a large beerlist offers one of the city’s best pub menus. Hamburgers, fried cheese and fish & chips are eaten here to much acclaim.

Hagabion’s theater, bar and café
Many think Hagabion is Göteborg’s best vegetarian restaurant—basically everything on the menu is to die for. The building also houses several of theaters where the festival’s films will be shown. Two birds with one stone.

Andra Långgatan
Just stroll along this hip street and pick out whatever suits you best when you’re ready to celebrate your latest viewing over a glass of local beer or wine. Göteborg’s pub mecca.

 

Sightseeing

Feskekörka (“Fish Church”)
Feskekörka is one of the buildings that makes Göteborg Göteborg. Catch a glimpse of the architecture, eat a hearty lunch or buy a some shrimp to bring home. The possibilities are endless.

Skansen Kronan (17th century redoubt)
Cross through the Haga district and warm up by taking the stairs up to Skansen Kronan. Up there you’ll get a great view totally worth the steep staircase.

Naturhistoriska (Museum of Natural History)
Right where Linnégatan turns into the park Slottsskogen, you’ll find the Museum of Natural History, Göteborg’s oldest museum and home to the impressive number of 10 million animals! There’s also a café here that serves lunch from Tuesday through Sunday. And you certainly don’t want to miss the stuffed blue whale they have on exhibit, do you?

Slottsskogen Park
All you need is a walk to shake of that sleepiness you get from winter. A great way of doing that is to go to Slottsskogen, Göteborg’s equivalent to Central Park. Slottsskogen was founded in 1874, but has a history stretching back to the medieval period.
