If you are one of those people who grew up in a big city (like myself), it is very likely that you have this magic skill to see a potential for a hang out spot in the most random places. And that is how we came up with our idea of urban BBQ in the middle of Gothenburg.
Swedish people love BBQ, from the very first moment when the sun is out. So if you walk to any supermarket you can easily buy all you need to make fresh grilled burgers/vegetables/whatever you like pretty much anywhere. We bought disposable bbqs, marshmallows and sausages, threw blankets over concrete floor in an unused harbor pier and we were set to go!
We took the ferry from Klippan to Eriksberg, the pretty sea side of Hissingen. The place was buzzing with people having picnics, bbqs or tanning. It is crazy how can a bit of sunshine change the whole atmosphere in one city!
We walked around a bit and finally found the perfect spot at the end of a pier. It was all just concrete and wind, but we were surrounded by ocean and the view was well worth it!
It might not have been as picturesque as going to the islands but it was the perfect spontaneous bbq you can organize without much planning in advance, located just one ferry stop away from the city center!
Puss och kram,
