While Christmas markets can be found all over Gothenburg, few are as popular as the one in the atmospheric neighbourhood of Haga.
This historic part of the city dates from the middle of the 17th century and still oozes authentic charm all year round. But during the four weekends of advent, it reaches new heights as the annual Christmas market pops up along its cobbled streets between the many cosy cafés and speciality shops.
Haga is known locally as the place to go for shopping and fika – the Swedish term for a coffee break that might include a sneaky bite too. Described as a city within the city, Haga’s unique architectural style combines wood and brickwork, making it the perfect backdrop for the holiday festivities.
Christmas at Haga serves up a great mix of design and delicatessen and it’s on every Saturday and Sunday from November 30 and until just before the big day.
