Göta Älvbron bridge was built in 1937-1939 to link the island of Hisingen with the mainland. Unlike Älvsborgsbro bridge, it is also trafficked by trams. The bridge is opened at regular intervals, to allow ships to pass on the river below. The bridge was famously opened during one Gothenburg City marathon, to the great annoyance of the runners. If you walk out to the middle of the bridge, you have a nice view of the harbor and the city. The bridge is located by Lilla Bommen, a few minutes' walk from Brunnsparken. To get here, take trams 2 or 5 or buses 40, 41 or 85 to Lilla Bommen.
