Haga is a nice place, but has been more and more touristified. There are a lot of nice, small shops and restaurants. In my opinion, the standard of the restaurants has been a little bit lower the last years, and so has the service level.

Though there are many tourists here it is nice walking around in Haga. Relax on one of the many cafées with coffee and a cake.

We stayed in Haga for 10 days in a BnB, and thoroughly enjoyed exploring the area on our evening strolls. Lots of restaurants, coffee shops, and other stores. Sol Rosen, a vegetarian restaurant in the area, is our favorite for a good value meal.

Visited about 10:30 am on a Sunday morning in July 2016 and found most of the shops closed. There were a few cafes open but many of these and most shops don't open until 12 and close by 4. Window shopping suggests it's worth a visit and the cafes that were open seemed to be doing a good trade!

It's a long street with plenty of history and interesting architecture and I do understand why people love it so. I too enjoyed walking down the cobbled pathway and looking at the old buildings so that was good enough for me. However, I found all the shops I saw to be selling very expensive touristy hippy items and the bar... More

We loved Haga! What a precious little area this is. There are tons of coffee shops with lovely covered outside seating to people watch and enjoy the atmosphere. Sjoboren restaurant was our absolute favourite and it is wise to book but more than worth it.

Little picturescue area with plenty of cafes and small vintage- and souvenir shops. Actually, this is maybe the only place in non-touristic Gothenburg where you can buy typical touristic souvenirs for your friends (postcards, magnets, and so on). Must visit on Friday, when it is full of people, everybody is walking around, chilling and having a great time.

Nice little area with coffee shops and design outlets. Good for a walk before going up the hill for a good point of view over the town.

This old area of Gothenburg is interesting from an architectural point of view but I found it to be really nothing special. Realistically it has been turned into a long straight street full of shops and restaurants aimed at the hippy/trendy market or the gullible tourist. It didn't do much for me I'm afraid.
