4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2012

avenyn is in the middle of the city sentru, and it's a great starting spot whether it's for sightseeing, barsounds or whatever. great parks and great views. If your hotel is close to this you can't complain about location ;) great food there and some awesome nightclubs !

“Avenyn is one of my favourite streets”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2012

Walking up and down Avenyn on a warm summer night is just great. Lots of people out on the city. Lots of restaurants, cafes and shops.
Bring a coffee and sit down at the steps of the museum of art at the end of Avenyn, and just look at the city life. Great.

“Ordinary”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2012

Not as happening as imagined, lots of pubs maybe, shops not concentrated too. Perhap of Gothenburg low population? Not overly crowded with people too. Compare to La Ramba of Barcelona that I just went, a stroll along Avenyn is like a quiet peaceful stroll along any road.

“Where it all happends during weeknites.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2012

This place - the living street of the town - is where a lot of people go every nite.The total length of this citystreet is about 3 km (2 miles). During the summer time you will find outdoor seatings all along the street (on the pavements).

“The main street for tourists”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2012

The runs through the center of town, with shops, Norstans the largest shopping mall, and restaurants. And one end is the art museum and it is quieter and a short walk to Liseberg and museums. It ends at the harbor at the opera house. There are boat tours there, and you can go to the top of the "lipstick" building for scenic views for 40sek. The tourist office is in Norstans or on the avenyn. The Gothenburg city card is worth purchasing. Free Public transport and many museums and activities are free. The Paddan boat tour was very good. And we went to Alvsberg Fortress which was a great trip. They have reanactments but be sure to request English. They do it in Swedish but did their best in English for us too. A cafe is on the isand and the history is very interesting.
