Overview

The district of Annedal was built in the 1870s by Arbetarbostadsaktiebolaget (the Workers' Housing Association), with the help of donations from Oscar Ekman. The two-story houses located on Carl Grimbergsgatan were seen as ideal prototype houses for the working-class people of Gothenburg. No lodgers were allowed. Whereas Haga and Landala districts both had a sordid reputation, the elite of Gothenburg's working classes lived here. Arbetarnas Byggnadsförening (the Workers' Building Society) created 24 co-operatives situated on what is now Carl Grimbergsgatan. There are a few redbrick houses still situated on the street reminiscent of that era. The street is within short walking distance of Övre Husargatan and Linnégatan, with their many cafés and restaurants. To get here, take tram 2 to Brunnsgatan.
