Best Time of Year to Visit Gothenburg
The best time to rent a camper van or RV in Gothenburg is between May and September when the temperatures are between 60° and 70°. The warmest months are July and August. In August, the annual music festival Way Out West takes place in Slottsskogen Park (Castle Forest). Fans of heavy metal music should visit in June and July as there are many interesting metal festivals taking place such as Metal Town Festival.
Fall to spring is not the best time to visit in terms of weather due to rain. On the other hand, this is a great time to visit Sweden from a culinary point of view because it’s the best time to enjoy freshly caught delicacies from the sea, including crabs, mussels, or oysters. Tip: Lobster from western Sweden is considered some of the best in the world!
Filling and Emptying Water Tanks in Gothenburg
When you rent a camper van in Gothenburg, you’ll need to find somewhere to fill your fresh water at the beginning of your trip and empty the grey water at the end.
Gas stations often have a fresh water tap where you can fill up, although we recommend not using the hose provided, as it’s not guaranteed to be free of contaminants. Instead, use a water canister to fill the fresh water tank. You can also buy large bottles of water from grocery stores for this purpose.
Unlike the U.S. and other European countries that have plenty of RV service sites, Sweden has fewer camper van services where you can empty your grey water. It’s best to do this at your campground after the final night of your road trip.
