Family-Friendly Areas & Hotels in Gothenburg

Gothenburg Area Suggestions

If you want to be close to the various activities for your kids, we suggest staying at a hotel near Liseberg (a fun park for all ages) which is near “Korsvägen”.

You could also stay in the central area and that would make it easier for you to get anywhere with the tram.

Mölndal is a good, quiet area to stay in too. It’s also close to the city. You can easily go from there to reach the different activity places by bus or tram.

Insider tip: All the Scandic hotels are usually good and family friendly
