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 :)

A very old church with fascinating architecture (if you cannot see it - look harder) and the great smell of wood. Interesting carvings a lovely idea of hanging little figurines in an alcove for each child christened at the church. There is parking available around the building and if they ever get clear days, there is probably a cracking view... More

The stairs are worth as the view from this church is priceless: on a good day you can see all of Gothenburg and even relax in the surroundings of the church.

Ok, the actual church isn't spectacular but the view from the surrounds is well worth the climb! You can also get there by car.

This is without doubt my favorite church in Gothenburg. There is definitely something special about its location, architecture and atmosphere. I recommend this as the first stop for first-time visitors to the city.

We walked from town to this church, many do bus tours. It is a 40 minute walk and worth a visit. This church was built in 1914, it was designed to resemble what a Viking age church would have looked like. So many beautiful things to see inside, especially touching the tree of life. Outside the church you will get... More
