Castle forest, better known as Slottsskogen is a beautiful 137 hectare wide park situated in central Gothenburg.

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.
