You’re locked in a room. Then, for a limited time (usually 60 minutes), you have to figure out mysteries, solve puzzles, and find clues to get out of the room before time runs out. Always with a helpful game master in the background if you get stuck.

Whatever the occasion – bachelorette party, after work hangout or just a regular Thursday – room escape games are guaranteed to be a hit.

Find the right escape room in Gothenburg

The escape room trend is strong in Gothenburg as well, and there are now many first-class facilities where you and your party can have a fun experience.

Just to name a few exciting challenges.

But with so many great options, finding the right one is not always easy. To guide you through the escape game jungle, we’ve put together a guide to Gothenburg’s best escape rooms. Get the gang together, book a room, and have fun! (Many of the rooms are also available in English).







Paladia is an enchanted escape room that you can find in the city center, just a stone’s throw from Avenyn. Here, you step into an almost magical environment where it’s like entering a new world. The decor is extraordinary, and it is clear how much thought and care has gone into it. The owners spend a lot of time searching for unique and quirky furniture and items (often over 100 years old) at auctions and flea markets.

But the rooms are not only amazingly decorated but also fun to play. Paladia has two different rooms where the difficulty level can be varied if you want to play with the kids, for example. “Treasure in the Wand Factory” involves finding a treasure by correctly using the wands’ magic. In “The Last Dragon,” you enter the territory of a dragon tamer to find new dragons for the magician school. It’s exciting, atmospheric, and super fun.

And if you’re having a kickoff, after-work hangout, or conference with work, Paladia offers MiniEscape – a miniature escape room perfect for team building. It’s delivered to your workplace or a conference facility and is suitable for 16-200 participants.
