Frihamnen is one of the RiverCity Gothenburg vision’s most vital components, unifying the centre of Gothenburg across the river and out towards Kvillebäcken, Lindholmen and Backaplan. In the Frihamnen of the future, it is envisaged that around 15,000 people will take up residence, with the same number working in the area.

Frihamnen will:

  • be developed into a dense inner-city area in central Gothenburg;
  • connect the city across the river;
  • open up Gothenburg to the world;
  • interconnect with surrounding urban districts;
  • be inclusive in character;
  • tackle the challenge of rising water levels while retaining the area’s appearance;
  • feature a carefully planned network of meeting places;
  • provide green space in close proximity to the water at Jubileumsparken;
  • be a test-bed for modern mobility.
