Before Liseberg was built, a lot had happened on the site. At first it was simply green pastures for cows, horses and sheep! After that, it was thought that the area had good soil for growing tobacco, so that was it.
When did Liseberg open
When Gothenburg celebrated its 300th anniversary in 1923, the Liseberg area opened. Then you could take a cable car from the exhibition at Götaplatsen over to Liseberg. In 2013, Liseberg celebrated 90 years.
Who bought the area where Liseberg is located?
Staden växte och runt omkring skapades fler gator och trafiken ökade. De rika sökte efter landet igen...och ville komma ut till grönska och odla sin egen lilla lott. Lisebergsområdet blev då som dagens kolonilotter, de uppdelas i olika små lotter - de delades in i morgnar - ett område stort att plöja under en morgon.
In 1740, councilor Jacob Bratt took over the "area". The mornings and the tobacco were left. Now the first buildings on the site were built. After Jacob Bratt's death, the successful merchant Johan Anders Lamberg took over the area.
Why is it called Liseberg?
Johan Lamberg loved gardens and his wife Elisabeth Söderberg. The word Liseberg comes from Johan's wife's name, when Johan named the area Lisa's mountain - eventually Liseberg. He also built a house for her - Landeriet Before the city of Gothenburg bought the park, there have been 6 different owners after the Lambergs family. One owner - used the park as a base for a huge smuggling operation. Precious materials were collected from various areas and later hidden in selected places in the park. Wondering if there is anything left today ........
Christmas at Liseberg started in 2000 and now it's a sensation! The whole of Liseberg is lit up by millions of Christmas lights. Fantastically beautiful. Come here and eat gingerbread and drink mulled wine and stroll around and feel the Christmas peace, take a skating trip, listen to Christmas carols, eat christmas food and much much more. In 2016, there were three new attractions in the area where the Ferris wheel stood and all around up on the hill. The new area up on the hill was named "Lisebergs Trädgårdar" with beautiful plantings and lush green areas. To get there, a new serpentine path has been built. AeroSpin is on site and for the youngest children: The Flower Carousel and the Children's Paradise. (free for children). For the slightly younger children, there is an imaginative playground "BarnensParadis" and the two-story carousel "Blomsterkarusellen". The old-fashioned Whirlwind has also been refreshed.

Halloween started in 2015 at Liseberg for the first time. Since then, the event has grown every year and is a very popular visit during the autumn.
The area in the park is especially for the slightly smaller children. Kaninlandet opened in 2013 and is growing all the time. In 2020, it was the premiere for Wonderland - where you can see the world of Liseberg rabbits underground. With the opening of Wonderland, Liseberg opened a "virtual queue" for the first time. Via an app, visitors can book an appointment when they are to visit the attraction. Instead of standing in line, you can play during the time before you go on your turn.
