Gothenburg : Michelin's recommendations
Göteborg, situated at the mouth of the Göta, is the largest port in Scandinavia and a busy commercial centre.

With excellent infrastructure for trade, sporting and cultural events, the city is a cosmopolitan, lively and welcoming place, which has earned it the title “the friendliest city in Sweden”.
