Great street to stroll down and do a little shopping. Grab a coffee at a cafe along the way and make a day of it.

My husband and I were only in Gothenburg for a short weekend so the first night we were there we ended up doing a spontaneous "pub crawl" on Avenyn. We started at one end of the street (next to the fountains) and just worked our way down, stopping at each bar/restaurant that looked appealing, had one drink, and then moved... More

Not very inspiring. Restaurants and bars on this street seemed touristy and overpriced. Shops mostly large chains.
