Göteborg’s premier art collection, Konstmuseet hosts works by the French Impressionists, Rubens, Van Gogh, Rembrandt and Picasso; Scandinavian masters such as Bruno Liljefors, Edvard Munch, Anders Zorn and Carl Larsson have pride of place in the Fürstenburg Galleries .

Other highlights include a superb sculpture hall, the Hasselblad Center with its annual New Nordic Photography exhibition, and temporary displays of next-gen Nordic art.

The unveiling of the bronze Poseidon fountain out front scandalised Göteborg’s strait-laced citizens, who insisted on drastic penile-reduction surgery.
