At Kulturnatta 19 October, you can fully experience Kronhuset and it's environment. The quarter will be awakened through all five senses. Music, exhibitions, flavors, smells, touch. From 17: 00 - 22: 00.
Among other things, painting is taking place in the Kronhusets Rikssal, Gothenburg's historic heart. Sprung out of the feeling and an inner world, says the artist Eva Wirén who leads the country. Do you want to try to awaken your senses? With Eve's help, you can enter the circle with artists and create your own space with the help of intuition and ancient techniques.
During the painting Göteborg Wind Orchestra in a way it never done before. No stands, no scene, except the one you're on. At the same time, from the crown's winds, tones are heard that attract a world that has stood still for hundreds of years. Historieverket provides guided tours.
The arrangement is a collaboration between Historieverket, Göteborg Wind Orchestra and Higab - part of the Culture Night.
Gothenburg City Hall - Asplund's extension. One critic said that it looked more like a southern bathing house than a court, meaning that since people here were anxiously waiting for their judgment, the character should be more serious, heavier, more closed. Gunnar Asplund's intention was consciously the opposite. Friendly sunny light, openness, flowers, human. An everyday tone and intimacy that might lead from anxiety to reconciliation. Do you want to experience the feeling? We provide guided tours Tuesdays and Thursdays.
In the premiere, GP and SR received a tour of the famous building. Radio Hasse Andersson broadcasted in the morning in P4 Gothenburg. What the report Jan Andersson and the photographer Jenny Ingemarsson received is soon to be seen in Göteborgsposten.
The reason for the attention is that there have been no regular public views of the City Hall earlier, despite great interest both in Sweden and abroad. Now, Historieverket, in collaboration with Higab, will arrange guided tours twice a week, until the twenty-first of December, at the beginning. Already there have been requests from other countries.
The tour goes through the City Hall's extension from 1936, signed by internationally acclaimed architect Gunnar Asplund, counted as a pioneer for functionalism.

The Emigrants' Streets
Over the years 1850 - 1930 emigrated 1,2 millions of Swedes to America. Most of them sealed from Packhuset in Gothenburg. Postgatan, which was called Sillgatan, was the big emigration street with offices, hotels, shady taverns and restaurants. Join the maid Mari (played by Anette Sundqvist) on her walk along the street, with dreams, hopes and fears before the departure. Directed by Isabel Lagos.
Guided tour in Kronhuset
In Gothenburg's oldest house from 1654, time has stood still. Welcome to an exciting view of the unique building with stories about the old city in war and peace.
The 11 September starts the History Agency guided views of Asplundian extension of Gothenburg City Hall at Gustaf Adolfs Torg. Perhaps not the most famous building among the Gothenburgs but probably the most admired internationally.
The views made in collaboration with Higab have already started with, among other things, a class of art students who had a walking tour with the History Agency's guide Daniel Bäcklund, dressed in an original 30 century costume. The cost of the costume is that the interesting part of the City Hall was built just in the 30 century. A functionalist addition, designed by the internationally acclaimed architect Gunnar Asplund, one of the pioneers for functionalism, including major works such as Stockholm City Library in Vasastaden, among the merits.
There is much to be found in Asplund's creation. The light and the open welcoming surfaces, that a functionalist space must not be square. A door must not be flat. Asplund's ideas go down to detail, with smart practical solutions to facilitate the work in the premises that served as court until 2010, when the Legal Center took over the business.
Guided tours on Tuesdays at 10: 00 and Thursdays 18: 00.
The 300 Anniversary of Karl XII's death was celebrated in Norway during the weekend, at Fredriksstens fortress in Halden, a small town at Idefjorden, on the border with Sweden. The question is, why was rancher Bo Rahmberg from Veddige there?
Historieverket took a time trip from Gothenburg to 1718 in Halden, where it was said that Karl XII would have a bullet through his head. The trip did not start well. Even before the border attacked heavy rainforests that darkened the sky and, in combination with an erroneous decision in a crossroads, caused the reported military parade to be missed. Finally, at least the town square was found, where some of the shattered Carolines were found. Despite the loss of the king, they were in good mood, claiming that they had not really lost the battle of the fortress. "We simply lost the lust." They came from Norrtälje.
On the slope towards the fortress were several campsites with Karolinian soldiers and accompanying women but only a camp with the red-dressed enemy, which was also abandoned. The numerical superiority of the carolines was therefore striking. Quirky.
Somewhat later, the time turned back to 1716, when Karl XII lived alive, made another attempt to subjugate the Norwegians. Street rides at the square broke out and that was when rancher Rahmberg from Veddige appeared. He went to the main joints of the karolins and knocked on the battle drum, yes he is drummer too. We thought of the nice hamburgers we had bought from him at the Veddige Ranch just a few weeks earlier. In peace time. He passed without seeing us. Immediately behind, Historieverkets Lars-Göran marched in the blue-colored karolin cap, concentrated in himself - by the time we saw him, he was a simple 1700-speaking printer at the Kronhuset in Gothenburg. It was too much. We went home. On the way we thought about 1719 when the Norwegian-Danish commander Tordenskjold would make an attempt to enter the Gothenburg fortress. Our hometown. What shall we find then?
It rained and blew the second historic camp day in Kronhus Park. But we are not made of butter! The adventures defied the weather. Here are some pictures from the fashion show that showed how people looked, from 1600 numbers to M59.
Those who show off the clothes are non-profit historical associations who mostly know why it looked like it did, and gladly tells about it. On Sunday there is a chance to meet them and find out about the details. The camp in Kronhus Park is open from 12 to 16.
