Haga is the oldest area of Gothenburg, dating back to the 1640s. Until the 1980s Haga was a rundown area, but it has since then been renovated. The old houses are now interspersed with new buildings built in an older style. If you are interested in antiques and arts and crafts, you should definitely give Haga a try. On and around the main street, Haga Nygata, you can find several antiques dealers, antiquarian bookstores, as well as small shops to pick up souvenirs. In addition to shops for all ages and interests, you'll find many cafes and restaurants with excellent fare. Haga is also within walking distance from the city center. If you don't feel like walking, you can catch trams 1, 3, 4 or 9 from Brunnsparken to Hagakyrkan to get to this historic area.
I love Haga because it is so quaint..the streets are pebbled and the buildings are no taller than three stories. Used to be the poor working class area of Gothenburg many years ago...these days however a very trendy place to live. It has however not lost any of its charms with its cobbled streets and 'village' feel. Could be compared to Hampstead in London. Plenty of cafe's and small individual shops selling all sorts of wares. Probably more busy during weekends and summer.
