I came upon this building and square while looking for the oldest building in Gothenburg. These shops are filled with items from local artisans, with glass, silver, wood, and chocolate available in many forms. A small cafe provides food that can be enjoyed at tables...More

As you may tell from other reviews, this place is just ridiculously under developed. The location is absolutely amazing, so close to the center, yet you can't find it, so neatly tucked away among the historical buildings. It has a very quaint chocolate and candy...More

Nice and quite, still not far from the main streets. Cool chocolate-shop. Looks like a good place to have lunch as well (the Kronhusbodarna that is) Try it out!

Good for a drink to see the buildings. Nice place to catch sun and relax. I found the shops a bit over priced.

We walked up to look at this ancient building, which was closed. The surrounding buildings are open and house artisans, artists, cafes and beautiful tiny shops. It seems a great pity that this oasis of peace and beauty is not trumpeted and promoted to visitors...More

This is very near our home so I pass it frequently when living in Sweden. It's very beautiful to look at as it's 'old world' style. The cobblestones can be a bit difficult to walk on ;-) but ...that's part of its charm. Several shops...More
