Haga District, Gothenburg, Gothenburg

The basics

Haga is best explored on foot, starting with a walk down the main boulevard of Haga Nygata. Pause to admire the landshövdingehus—the neighborhood’s distinctive brick and wooden houses that date back to the 19th century—and give yourself plenty of time to wander the side streets, lined with small shops and independent boutiques. Finish your visit with a traditional Swedish fika (coffee break) at one of the many cafés—a popular spot is Café Husaren, which is famous for its gigantic hagabullen cinnamon buns.
