Castle forest, better known as Slottsskogen is a beautiful 137 hectare wide park situated in central Gothenburg. It is a Swedish cultural hub with small cottages from many countries ago, a zoo consisting of Swedish animals, a pond with penguins and seals, and a playground for softball, football and Frisbee golf. Castle forest is the center of the Way Out West Festival that is celebrated every year.

The highest point of the park is located in the north, where people can enjoy Gothenburg’s best views. There are potholes which are basically craters in the rock dug out of ice more than 12 thousand years ago! Here the visitors may wander around the paths amongst the native trees like linden, maple, beech & different types of oak. A few trees are as old as 300 years. Azaleas are the plants which do not grow naturally in Sweden but have turned into a hallmark of castle forest through the dense Azaleadalen. Azaleadalen flourish normally from late May or early June for a short period of less than three weeks. Of course, this period alters each year depending on the weather so it is difficult to predict just when.

Slottsskogen, Gothenburg Reviews - Write a Review

  • One of the best parks in Gothenburg. It's big and suitable for families. There is a playing area for children and an open zoo. Coffee shops and restaurants are available at certain points in the park. Recommended for a sunny day.

  • Great place for kids and family. It has a nice outdoor play area with lots of equipment for kids like swings and slides. The long winding slide is the best, kids enjoy it the most.

  • Great park for barbecues and relaxing. Highly recommended going through the forest and taking a look at the animals there.

  • A very nice, relaxing park. I highly recommend going here with plenty of time to spend walking around, looking at all the animals. Great place for families, with a playground, pony riding and opportunity to play with and pet goats.

  • A nice playground built in symbiosis with the surroundings. The visitors get to discover the forest as well as play. Beautiful.
