I am glad we saw the square and the statue with his finger pointing purposefully. Not that either is particularly visually astounding, but the interesting history and story behind the attraction make it worth seeing and relevant to a visit to Gothenburg. Gustav Adolfs must...More

If you are into statues there are a lot to see in Gothenburg. Gustav Adolfs Torg is a must to understand part of the history or the city. Centered in a large square it is hard to miss and only a few minutes walk from...More

I love the big European squares, but this one felt oddly empty. The location is amazing, next to the river and near the harbour, but it lacks general atmosphere. The statue is quite nice, but overall it's a quick stop and move on

This statue stands tall in a large empty square. The buildings along the back of the square are being remodeled so the backdrop was ugly. The canal nearby is well worth waking along and a quick stop here is all that is needed.

Our hotel was close by so we made a few visits here, admiring the statue each time - it ozzes attitude and charisma if that's possible. Significant to Gothenburg's history, it would be more memorable for citizens than tourists, but it makes a nice spot...More

Wouldn't recommend stopping for a photo , but if you walk by, get one! Not much to add unless you really like to study the statue details .

If you just explore the Gothenburg city center a little , you can't miss this. Take a snap, there's nothing much else to it.
