Gothenburg tradition: Chalmers Cortége


Ben Kendall 2012-04-29

Around 250,000 people will line the streets of central Gothenburg to watch the annual Chalmers Cortége on April 30. The event, which is organised by students at Chalmers, has been running since 1909.  

 
The parade is made up of floats with students satirically depicting significant public events that have taken place during the past year. Examples this year include the proposed early closure of bars and clubs in Gothenburg, as well as the possible raising of the retirement age in Sweden to 75 years. Over 600 students are involved.

 

The parade starts at 18.15 and goes from Chalmers to the city centre. The designated route is from Gibraltargatan - Läraregatan - Viktor Rydbergsgatan - Kungsportsavenyn - Vasagatan - Aschbergsgatan - Läraregatan - Gibraltargatan.
