The Göta Canal company

AB Göta kanalbolag

The Göta Canal Company was founded in 1810 when construction work began on the canal. The original shipping traffic on the canal has been replaced by tourists in pleasure craft and passenger boats. The entire Göta Canal area is one of Sweden’s most popular attractions for visitors from Sweden and abroad.

AB Göta kanalbolag manages the canal and properties around it. Property management includes forest, lands and buildings with both historical and practical ties to the canal. The company owns about 400 buildings. The Göta kanalbolag also carries out extensive maintenance and renovations.
