Neighborhood: Linnéstaden

Eriksberg is an old shipyard that has been rebuilt and is now a modern neighborhood. The former machinery buildings have been restored and now serve as a hotel with conference facilities, Blå Hallen and Eriksbergshallen. Eriksbergs gantry crane stands 84 meters (275 feet) above sea level, and you have a great view of the harbor. For the more daring, there is also bungee jumping. If you are interested in Gothenburg's naval history, a visit to the East India Company building site for the ship Göthenborg is highly recommended. It also houses a museum and a shop. Färjenäsberget is where Gothenburg was originally founded in 1603. There are also restaurants and cafés at Eriksberg. To get there take the ferry Älv-Snabben from Lilla Bommen to Eriksberg.
