Gothenburg turns 400 years
Gothenburg turns 400 years. Göteborgs Stad wants to celebrate this by developing Gothenburg into an even better place to visit, live in and work in. Due to covid-19, the anniversary celebration was changed by a decision in the City council in September 2020. This means that in 2021 we arrange a formal, historic celebration of the official birthday June 4th. Here on the website we gather activities by various anniversary projects during the whole year. The big anniversary program when citizens of Gothenburg and visitors from all over the world can celebrate together is planned for 2023.
