Enjoy panoramic views over Gothenburg’s bustling port and the iconic Opera House from the top of the Göteborgsutkiken, the ‘Gothenburg Lookout,’ at 86m high.

Known locally as ‘the lipstick,’ the building’s official name is the Lilla Bommen building and it is notable for its white and red colouring, as well as its views.

Highlights:

  • One of the best viewpoints in Gothenburg
  • 86m high
  • Views of harbour
  • Opera House
  • "The Lippstick" - a local nickname of this iconic building

The Experience:

Located in the Lilla Bommen district, which is what gives it its official name, the Göteborgsutkiken (Gothenburg lookout) is known locally by many names, including Läppstiftet (the Lipstick), Skanskaskrapan (the Skanska Skyscraper), Vattenståndet (the Water Level, and a cruder meaning) or Legohuset (the Lego House). Whatever you want to call it, this Post-Modern tower painted red and white is a unique example of its style of architecture, designed by Ralph Erskine.

Take the elevator to the top floor and enjoy the spectacular views over the harbour, out to the archipelago, over the city and Opera House. There are few other places where you can take in such uninterrupted views.
