A burgeoning startup hub, Gothenburg is Sweden's second largest city with plenty of coworking spaces dotted around so you don't have to worry about where you are going to work from. With its small town feel and cosmopolitan vibe, you will find hip cafes for caffeine hits and a dynamic nightlife to keep you up all hours if you so desire.
There is definitely an ecosystem happening with the backing of the technology arm of the Chalmers University sitting in the city and its Chalmers School of Entrepreneurship and Chalmers Ventures being driving forces. With the government's green approach and focus on sustainability, it is encouraging
homegrown technology with an emphasis on energy and transport. Numerous events focused on IT startups are hosted throughout the year in the city.
The city's coworking spaces attract not just the local innovative youth but freelancing professionals living in the city who don't wish to expend money on infrastructure for their own offices or business individuals who may just be in town for a few days and need somewhere to work from. Add in the wandering nomads lugging laptops and it is little wonder that there is a growing need to cater to the growing number of coworkers.
Known for its Dutch-style canals, leafy boulevards and its seaport, Gothenburg's charm lays in its bohemian aura and cutting-edge architecture. The waterfront is where to go when you want a feed of fresh fish or to gawk at anything with a nautical flavor. The Avenyn Boulevard is the place to haunt at night with its bar lined facade, whilst the fashionistas can destroy their credit cards in the eclectic boutiques in the Linne and Vasastan districts.
When you just want to go for a stroll to clear the brain bumps, you should head to one of the oldest neighborhoods dating from the 17th Century, Haga Nygata and check out the preserved timber houses or gorge yourself on some chocolate from Bräutigam's, who have been making chocolate for 140 years.
