#1 of 16 in Historic Sites in Gothenburg
Walk the cobblestoned streets of Haga, the city's oldest neighborhood, which has experienced a renaissance in recent years. This quarter was founded in the 17th century, though most of its character and historical architecture reflects its roots as a 19th-century working-class district. After becoming a famous hippie hangout in the 1970s, this area was renovated in the 1980s. Today this trendy neighborhood boasts lovely wooden houses, boutique shops, and locally owned cafes, restaurants, and bars.
