Begin your tour with a short panoramic tour of Gothenburg, the ‘Christmas City’. In 2004, an initiative was introduced to bring warmth and cheer to the city centre in wintertime. The Christmas City was born. Today facades of buildings are bathed in light, trees are outlined in thousands of blue bulbs, fresh garlands and wreaths are strewn everywhere. It is simply – seasonal, elegant and innovative.
A stop at Masthuggs Church allows a magnificent view of Gothenburg and the port. Avenyen, the main street and the Grand Boulevard of Gothenburg is host to many restaurants, bars and shops and at Gustav Adolfs Square, you will also see the City Hall, the Court House and the Stock Exchange.
Götaplatsen is the cultural hub of the city and the destination for your Christmas Light Show. A festive film is projected onto the giant façade of the National Art Museum, its mammoth columns becoming a playground for dancing images. A magnificent performance of light and sound is given against the walls.
Next, make a stop at "The Singing Christmas Tree", one of Gothenburg’s most popular outdoor attractions for a short performance of carols and Christmas songs sung by the city’s finest choirs.
As you drive through this festive city you will get a glimpse of the entrance to Liseberg, the biggest Christmas Market in Scandinavia which for the season is decorated with almost 5 million Christmas lights.
This tour will operate by coach and on foot. There is very little walking involved on this excursion. The commentary for the light show will be in Swedish.
