Masthuggskyrkyan affords possibly the best vantage point in Gothenburg with its magnificent view of the city and waterways from each direction. When we visited there was some restoration being done outside but it was not intrusive. Do not miss the interior of this hundred year old church which boasts an impressive altar, ceiling and anterooms..

This is a spot if you wish to see Gothenburg from the top. Amazing view and an easy climb and easy access. Bring a portable BBQ and enjoy the sunset.

There was some restoration work in progress when we visited. A pretty nice church. Dont compare with Rome. The location and the architecture both blend well. The church literally overlooks the city. From around the church you have a good view of the city of gøteborg in all directions. I would place this as a must if you like to... More

Great view and best on a clear and sunny day. Mind you, there isn't anything "to do" on the site itself other than enjoy the view - so don't expect multiple coffee shops, or being able to buy a sandwhich anywhere if you're hungry. Other than that, it is a great place to sit and reflect and soak in the... More

The church was built 1914 and is an interesting reminder that Gothenburg is a city by the sea. Even more spectacular than the church is the beautiful view over the western part of the city, and even the islands in the southern archipelago, from the church.

This is a church that is about 100 years old, located on the top of a hill. Several of the city trams have sops near the church, but there's a significant walk up the hill from any of the stops. Inside of the church, there's a self-guided tour - for a small fee, you can get a printed guide, available... More

Herefrom you get a good view over Gothenburg, from the sea along the river Gota Alv, towards the central parts of the city. In summertime it is a popular picnic spot. The church itself reflects the scandinavian history.

The church was designed by Sigfrid Ericson and built in 1914. The church represents the national romantic style in Nordic architecture. It is located on the Masthugget hill. Outside the church there is a spectacular view of Göta Älv, Älvsborgsbron and the surroundings.

It was too late to go inside of the church,but the look from the top of this hill took my breath away! Too bad it was windy so we couldn't stay more longer :)
