It’s a nice square surrounded by a museum, a playhouse, a library. Has a nice statue of Poseidon in the middle, and some smaller Cafés a little down the road.

As is the case with many other main streets around Europe (and the rest of the world), Kungsportsavenyn is characterized by an ending 'fond' at one end - a square with classy-style buildings and an expressive Poseidon statue, usually colored by season or big anniversary....More

Nice to walk down the Kungsportsavenyen street to Gotaplatsen at night. Nice statue to see. Good area to walk in.

In the end of the main street in Gothenburg you will find this magnificent square. The highlight is the very big statue of Poseidon. Here you can look out to the town.

If you are visiting Goteborg, you must visit Gotaplatsen. With a great view of Avenyn as well as a number of statues, museums and a concert hall, you feel the heartbeat of the city, no matter the time of year.

Walked up to Gotaplatsen from the harbour which let's you see all the main area downtown. Good view back down to the city and plenty of museums etc in this square.

The square itself is nothing special and the statute in the middle although emblematic is not that nice but this is a good place to start a stroll through the central avenue and enjoy a very relaxed city!

A the top of Avenyn you have a fabulous view of THE street in Gothenburg. It is definitely worth the walk there!

This square, at the end of the boulevard locals call ‘Avenyn’, is a good place to spend a rainy day. It is surrounded by the Gothenburg Museum of Art, also housing the Hasselblad Center, the Konsthall (1923), the City Theatre (1934), the Concert Hall (1935),...More
