Liseberg is an amusement park located in Gothenburg, Sweden. The park opened in 1923 and is the largest among counterparts located in the Nordic countries, attracting over 3 million visitors annually. One of the most popular attractions is the wooden roller coaster Balder, voted twice (2003 and 2005) as Best Wooden Tracked Roller Coaster in the world in a major international poll.[1] The park itself has also been chosen as one of the top ten amusement parks in the world (2005) by Forbes Magazine.[2] Additional to the summer season, the park is also open during November and December, albeit with fewer rides operating, hosting a Christmas market with traditional Swedish cuisine such as mulled wine and specialties such as döner kebab made from reindeer meat.
