About Slottsskogen, Gothenburg

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. There are several rivers in the Castle Forest which which are home to unique species of salamanders and frogs for all the nature lovers.

Slottsskogen, Gothenburg Reviews

  • Looooove this park!! Huge with lots of walking but lovely places to see! Bring the kids for so much fun in the play area! Don't miss the big silver tunnel!

  • Lots of open spaces, animal attractions year round, great in the summer and almost just as food in winter. Fantastic place for a casual stroll or a brisk jog.

  • Beautiful park to visit in Gothenburg. The name suggests there is a castle in the park. I could not find one. But there is the natural history museum though, and I recommend that. There are some seals, penguins, moose and other hooved animals in the park to go check out. The park is jumping in the summer with lots of festivals and music and special events.

  • Great park. A lot of things to do. Children's Zoo, watch the seals, the penguins, play at the playground, play beach volleyball, frisbee golf or just relax in the sun.

  • The park is located in the middle of the city, just like Central Park. This is where people experience the natural and scenic view enjoy a stroll, jog or other out door activity.
