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

Take a walk to the Masthuggskyrkan with your friends and a kilo of fresh shrimps as a start for the next adventure.

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

Went on the Botanical Visit from our cruise. However, it was the National Holiday and some 8 or 10 buses were parked and people were swarming around trying to get in. Unfortunately the building was locked. The church has a great vantage point looking over the river an industrial dock area.

A beautiful nordic church with surroundings that offer a vantage point to see the whole of Gothenburg and the surrounding waterways and harbour. Well worth a visit.

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.
