It´s all about water: visit the Gothenburg regatta and win a stay at Radisson Blu!

Don't know what to do this weekend? Then come join the party in Gothenburg between 3 and 6 September for the North Sea Tall Ships Regatta. Discover some of the world’s most spectacular and impressive ships which after a week-long race all the way from Blyth (UK) will be ready to welcome you on board.


The festival lets you not only experience the ships, but also offers a multitude of different activities and entertainment for all ages as well as a great food selection. A unique opportunity to go on board these impressive boats, navigated by young people from twelve different nations. 60 participants actually are from Gothenburg itself. Our local Radisson Blu hotels of course want in no the action, welcoming you on the Race Village festival site with two bars, one of which is perfectly located on the Christian Radich ship.

Contest with #RadissonBluFtw - share your best pictures!

When strolling through the race village, make sure to check out the magnificent work of art painted by local artist Thomas Jordansson. His colorful wall painting features statues from different Radisson Blu locations around the world, fittingly focusing on a water theme. Water is also in the center of our social media contest, asking participants to share their favorite shots around the theme of water (after all, it is a sailing party!) To take part, just tag your photo with #radissonbluFTW and #tävling. The contest ends on 18 September 2016. The prize: an overnight stay at any Radisson Blu hotel in the world, or an overnight stay in Gothenburg: either at the Radisson Blu Riverside at Lindholmen with its unique rooftop terrace and award-winning design or at the Radisson Blu Scandinavia which is currently undergoing a fabulous renovation (see pictures).
