Useful information

Maritiman is moored at Packhuskajen quay in central Gothenburg. Its immediate neighbours are GöteborgsOperan (the opera house) and Kajskjul 8. It takes around ten minutes to walk to Maritiman from Gothenburg Central Station, Brunnsparken and Drottningtorget. 

In 2020, parts of  Packhuskajen quay will undergo extensive renovations. This, combined with the construction of  the major transport infrastructure project in Gothenburg called The West Link, could make it seem a bit difficult to get to Packhuskajen/Maritiman at the moment. Maritiman, regardless of the construction work, will be open as usual throughout the season!


Bicycle parking facilities are available at GöteborgsOperan. The City of Gothenburg also has a bicycle loan scheme known as Styr&Ställ. Bicycles can be collected from the bicycle station at Tullpackhuset. You need to register to use the bicycles.


The nearest bus and tram stops are Stenpiren and Lilla Bommen. From there it is a short walk of about five minutes to Maritiman. For exact times and routes please go to the Västtrafik travel planner.


Look up the directions on Google Maps, for instance. The best place to park is right outside Maritiman, at the Packhuskajen quay. There is also a multi-storey car park at the Nordstan shopping centre.

Maritiman’s entrance, café and ships are listed in TD – Sweden’s accessibility database. Maritiman exhibits ships in their original condition, which means some have high thresholds and steep ladders for getting aboard. It is not possible, therefore, to move around by wheelchair. Guide dogs are permitted.

We do not currently have special pram parking facilities, but if space allows you can leave your pram on the Ada I pontoon. Please bring a baby carrier for your child.
