The Swedish Christmas buffet, the Jul Board is a special experience in the run-up to Christmas. In the evening, I must reserve often for restaurants, but also at noon there Jul Board, then mostly without court order. Enjoy the abundance of Swedish specialties of the pickled herring on different types of salmon and to classic of Swedish Christmas specialities, the Christmas ham (“julskinka”), the potato and anchovy butter (“Janssons frestelse”) and the small meatballs so popular not only among children (“kottbullar”). Tip: You have plenty of time and the weather is favourable, we recommend a harbour cruise in the Gothenburg Harbour. To do this, you have to take a commercial tour boat. You have a good look because of the Passenger ferry “alvsnabben”, which is part of the public transport and therefore no more than a tram ride costs. The alvsnabben operates between the Deutschlandkai of the Stena Line (Kiel ferry) and the Gothenburg City Centre. Walther Plette
