About us

Walther Plette

As an expat living in Sweden, I write about things to see and do in my new home country. You will find many photos on my website, most of which originate from trips that I have made with my kids. We love to give you personal and useful travel tips about Sweden. We are located near Gothenburg on the west coast of Sweden. When we are outdoors, we enjoy hiking, canoeing, swimming in our fantastic lakes, and picking berries and mushrooms.

We have helped tourists since 2008

Swedentips.se is the sister site of Schwedentipps.se (in German), which has been around since 2008. With strong links to the Swedish travel industry, Schwedentipps.se has become one of the most successful online travel guides about Sweden. Here on Swedentips.se, we now pass on that same experience to the English speaking traveller.
