Åmål | 19 – 21 July

The Swedish Ship Götheborg arrives to Åmål on the 19th of July and stay until the 21th of July. The visit to the city will be the forth stop over on Vänern Tour. The quay turnes into an event area with exhibitions, concerts and crafts.

Lake Vänern extends almost all the way into Åmåls city center. The construction of the city  began in 1640 and became a hub of the Värmland iron industry. Shipping was important because iron was passed on via boat to the exit port of Gothenburg. The marina and boat traffic is still important for the city of Åmål.

The Swedish Ship Götheborg arrives to Åmål at 13.00 on the 19th of July. There will be an arrival ceremony, including a cannon salute, interview with the captain and shanty singing.

On the quay, there will be exhibitions of the Swedish East India trade in our historical exhibition and a photo exhibition with stunning images from the ship expeditions worldwide.

The ship will be open for the public on the 19th of July 14.30 – 17-30 and on the 20th and the 21th of July, at 10.00 – 20.00 a clock. Welcome aboard to the smell of tar and wood, of adventure and sea. Talk to the crew who can tell you about life on board.
