"The singers were very happy. If you ask me I think this was the best festival ever. Then I think of the venue, the hotel, the distance between venue and hotel, the quality of the choirs and also the organization. Very professional!"

Rolf Egeland, Norway (Tour operator of four Norwegian choirs) (GPoN Berlin 2017)

Best of Grand Prix of Nations Gothenburg 2019 & 4th European Choir Games


Gothenburg is an open-minded and accessible city. It offers almost everything you expect of a cosmopolitan city – within walking distance. All you need is located right in the city and you can get everywhere by foot – from the Central Station to your hotel, to the arenas, shopping, restaurants and nightlife. But it’s not just close to everything; it’s also easy to get here. Both international airports are just 20 minutes from the city center and you can get direct flights from more than 65 European cities.
