1. Kviberg Marknad
The gigantic stables at the old Kviberg barracks no longer house any horses; instead there is a market, the place to be if you want to forget for a while that you are in rainy, windy Gothenburg. At Kviberg market all kinds of people from all over the world converge, and you can buy absolutely anything, from antiques to garden gnomes. Kvibergs market is open every weekend. To get there, take trams 6 or 7 to Kviberg and then just follow the rest of the people.

Framed by the PUB shopping arcade and the Concert Hall, with Carl Milles's grand statue Orpheus, you will find Hötorget (the Hay Market).

2. Antikvariat Oceanen
This is a second-hand bookshop at its best. Once you have passed the entrance it is no more than ten metres until you have reached the end of the store. That doesn't mean that there are few books here, though: what they have done here is use the height of the ceiling. Standing on the floor looking up at the highest bookshelves might make you feel a little dizzy...
The range of subjects is mostly in fiction and if you spend some time you will probably find several really good books here.
