Southern Goteborg Archipelago Gothenburg
#1 of 166 Sights & Landmarks in Vastra Gotaland County
The first island I chose to stop at was Styrsö which is just beautiful, all of the islands are quite low granite islands with attractive villages and lovely cloastal walks and stunning views.
Always with a better weather out here than ashore, these islands offer a swim, a snack (some few places), neat houses and paths for the sights.

Liseberg amusement park Gothenburg
#2 of 166 Sights & Landmarks in Vastra Gotaland County
It is a very large site, quite a lot of it a theme park with all the crazy adventure rides, but come Xmas it morphs into a winter wonderland with all the trees festooned with thousands of lights.
It's one of the few parks I've been to where rides are on top of rides (space constraints) and if you go on some of them you have a fabulous high view of the city ie Upswing, Atmosphere and Balder.

Haga Gothenburg
#4 of 166 Sights & Landmarks in Vastra Gotaland County
It is only a few blocks walk to the park surrounding the Skansen Kronan, which provides a great view of the city after a climb up a steep stairs or a more friendly paved path.
Make sure you climb the hill to the fort for amazing views of the rest of the city.

Masthuggskyrkan Gothenburg
#5 of 166 Sights & Landmarks in Vastra Gotaland County
The church building itself is architecturally interesting and sits high on a hill, with some granite outcrops amid a lawn area that would be wonderful for a picnic or just a place to hang out and view the city.
Started in 1914, the church is located on a high hill which gives commanding views of Goteborg, especially Goteborg harbor.

Bohus Fastning Kungalv
#6 of 166 Sights & Landmarks in Vastra Gotaland County
... spend there 2-3 hours, if you want to visit all the parts, read all the panels (there could be more of them) or just take a rest while looking over the countryside (there is a marvelous view from the fortress).
Bohus Fortress is a spectacular and very interesting historical site.

Oscar Fredriks Church Gothenburg
#12 of 166 Sights & Landmarks in Vastra Gotaland County
Best church in Gothenburg with a beautiful view
This isn't downtown and is a bit further than most of the sights, so a visit would best be incorporated into a walk to the Haga neighborhood and Skansen Kronan.

There are four main sites and some additional, three of those can be covered by 6 km hiking trail or by car - there's a parking spot in Lisby, Vitlycke (there's also a free museum, cafe and a gift shop) and Aspebe...
Ample parking space and well managed foot paths made this site very easy to explore.

Lilla Bommen Gothenburg
#16 of 166 Sights & Landmarks in Vastra Gotaland County
We live near here when we're in Sweden so I guess I'm a bit biased but ...it's really one of the most beautiful places for taking pictures as the views change (sky, sun, etc.) daily as well as seasonally.
You will get the best view on the ships in the harbor, and of the canal when you take one of the Paddan (boat) sight seeing tours.

Skansen Lejonet Gothenburg
#19 of 166 Sights & Landmarks in Vastra Gotaland County
Our group of friends from the U.S. thoroughly enjoyed this historic structure ... the views from here are amazing learning about the history of how this fort was used was really cool.
However, if you have time, I would also suggest Skansen Kronan as it's in a very lovely area; harder to get to (it's at the top of a hill) but the views are lovely and it's in Haga.
