Wallenberg Conference Centre
NPC15 is hosted by University of Gothenburg, close by one of the Europe's largest Botanical gardens with more than 12 000 species. The garden is divided into different sections linked by lawns with fine trees and shrubs. Here you will find species that are not grown anywhere else. The Greenhouses have more than 4 000 species including a large collection of orchids and carnivorous plants. The garden is bordering a nature reserve where also the arboretum is located. You can ramble freely here, occasionally meeting a hare, fox, deer or elk. Please visit the official visitor’s guide.
NPC15 coincides with the 400th anniversary of the hosting city of Gothenburg. Easily accessible through Sweden’s western international airport Landvetter with over 90 direct routes around the world, it is a place to relax, enjoy nature, and share culinary experience in the resident restaurants that use the finest locally grown produce. Sip a glass of wine in the numerous bars around Gothenburg or explore one of Europe’s hottest hubs for craft beer. Check out Gothenburg’s amazing cafés, bars and restaurants.
Please also visit beyond the city. Gothenburg surrounding area is a beautiful place in itself, worth extending your stay before or after the congress. All areas offer something extra and a day trip to a castle, an idyllic archipelago with authentic coast atmosphere, or a museum is a pleasant time spending and easy to access. Here is a list of some of the places worth a visit next to Gothenburg.
For the sports aficionados: sea kayak and surfing will allow you to challenge yourself at the open sea. For those who want to explore the underwater world, there are also great opportunities for scuba diving. Pay a visit to the Skidome – a unique ski arena with classic and skate tracks all year round – in -4 degrees Celsius and without any wind. Or, if you want to go biking, enjoy some of Sweden’s most beautiful trails.
