This church is a good place to visit when in goteborg. The best thing is it on the top of a hill accessible by taxi with great views. The road to the top is also a scenic route. Also it is good place to check out the history and old Swedish architecture.

Great view of the harbour and the city from this Church. Decoration inside inspired by the many seamen of Gothenburg. Nice, peaceful room for contemplation also.

It is a protestant church, so it is not the most beautiful or ornate church, but it's location at the top of a hill is it's big strength. There are some nice natural spaces (trees, grass, rocks) at the top of the hill so I decided to sit on a rock and eat my lunch while looking out at a... More

A must when you visit Gothenburg. There's still animal fur living the main doors, and thre candles for devotion area at the back is really beautiful. If ther is a choral conch on during your stay, make sure to attend: the acoustics are amazing

The view is nice, specially if it is a sunny day! But the church itself, makes it completely worth to come here.

You can go to Masthugskyrkan by bus or tram combined with a short walk. The view to Gothenburg is great and the church is worth a visit although it is not a particularly old church. The story goes that dynamite was placed in the vaults of the church during world war one so it could be demolished in the case... More

It's a 400m walk up to the church from the bus stop. This is the easier route compared to the path at the back of the church which is quite steep. A pretty good view of Goteborg from behind the church. Was there on a Sunday, a service was going on in the chapel. There's some renovation going on at... More
