Liseberg is a fantastic place to visit both in the summer time and in December, the Christmas month at Liseberg. The attractions are many and for you who do not want to ride in any roller coaster, you can just walk around and look at the beautiful flower decorations and in the wintertime Liseberg is lit up with nearly 5 million lamps that are placed in the trees.

Liseberg entranceWhen did Liseberg open?
When Gothenburg celebrated 300 years the area Liseberg opened. At this time you could take an aerial cableway from Götaplatsen over to Liseberg. In 2013 Liseberg celebrated 90 years anniversary.

History
Before Liseberg was built there have happend a lot at the area. At first there was only big land, pasture land for cows, horses and sheep.

After some time the area also became a place to plant tobacco in. The soil was good for this, maybe it was, but we thought about the weather.......

Who bought the area?
The city grow and everywhere more and more streets were created and the city traffic also increased. The rich poeple started to search for area at the country side again.... they wanted to come out to green area and plant their own
vegetable garden. The area Liseberg then became as todays small plantation areas, they were split in to small areas who was called morgnings - the area was so big that you could harvest it during one morning.

1740 the district court judge took over the area, and his name was Jacob Bratt. The so called morgnings were still left and also the tobacco plant. Now the first buildnings started to be built at the area.

Next year (2018), "Valkyria" (new roller coaster) will be placed in the same place. The area will be approximately 8000 square meters and will be based on Nordic mythology. The area will also have new restaurants, shops and game areas.

Some facts/Loke: 27 meter high, 100 kilometers per hour, the ride takes about 100 sec, 40 persons per ride.


2016 - Several new attractions / areas at Liseberg
Lisebergs Gardens with AeroSpin, Flower Carousel & Children´s Paradise.
AeroSpin Liseberg
(2016) there were three new attractions at the new area were Parishjulet were located.

The new area on the hill "Lisebergs Gardens" is a newarea with beautiful plantings and lush greenery. To get there, a new serpentine path is build. On site, there are three new attractions and a new cafe. One attraction is for adults: AeroSpin and for the smallest children: Flower Carousel and Children's Paradise. (free for the children)

AeroSpin: 70 meters above sea level, you can control your own airplanes the way you want. Aero Spin is a 35-meter rotating tower with twelve arms and on each arm sits two aircraft. The aircraft has two levers, one for each wing, the person in the plain can then self-control the plane and get it to rotate sideways around its own axis.

For the younger children there are a new imaginative playground "Children's Paradise" and the double-decker carousel "Flower Carousel". The old-fashioned "Virvelvinden" has also received a facelift.

2015 - New ride at Liseberg - MECHANICA
2015 - new ride at Liseberg- MECHANICA.
A unique attraction that has never before been seen at Liseberg. It takes you back to the Middle Ages and Leonardo Da Vinci's imaginative creations. Here you spin 360 degrees high up in the air (30 m), while going in a pendulum movement. Yes, it is a really strange machine .... something just for the daredevils :).

Short facts: 30 m high. 6 gondolas with 5 seats in each. The ride takes approx 1,5 minutes.

Liseberg amusementpark GoteborgWhy is it called Liseberg?
After Jacob Bratts death the successful merchant Johan Anders Lamberg took over the area.
Johan loved gardens and also his wife Elisabeth Söderberg. The word Liseberg comes from Johans wife, when Johan called her Lisa and gave the name to the area Lisas berg - eventually the name Liseberg.
He also built a house for her, the so called - Landeriet.

Before the city of Gothenburg bought the park, there have been 6 owners after the family Lamberg. One owner - used the park as a big base for an enormous smuggler activity. From different places precious things were gathered and later on was hidden at special places in the park .Wonder if there are any items left today.....
