Slottsskogen City Park

Follow the marathon from front row and watch the drivers compete for the medals. Bring your friends and family and have a magnificent day in the park.

Slottsskogen City Park is Gothenburg’s very own park, recreation area and green meeting place. It is a wonderful place for walks, sports, fun and relaxation. Major events such as the Way Out West music festival are held here every year, and the park is the starting point for Göteborgsvarvet, the world’s largest half marathon. Slottsskogen contains a wildlife park where you can see elks, Gotland ponies, Gute sheep and other Nordic animals. Barnens Zoo is a popular children’s attraction in the summer, where visitors can meet baby pigs and goats at close range. And don’t miss the seals’ and penguins’ feeding time. Slottsskogen mainly consists of natural woodland with walking paths surrounded by indigenous trees such as linden, beech, maple and several oak varieties. Some of the trees are almost 300 years old. Bring your friends and family to Slottsskogen to watch the end of the Driving marathon.
