A fantastic building made as a church but is in aur for the trade of what Gothenburg have an abodance of and that i fish.. - just have to visit it the place and buy fresh fish and shrimps.. that is as ships for the Gothenburg-people..and the restaurant "Hyllan" that serves good food - a must.

A nice surrounding for a nice luncheon on your way to Slottskogen after a stroll through a historical part of Gothenburg.

We had lunch at the small cafe as you enter the Fish Church; I had the fish soup and my husband the fish stew. They were both excellent , the best we had had! The market is stocked with all kinds of wonderful fish and shellfish and well worth a visit, but do stay for lunch!

In addition to the unique architecture the is a great place to grab a snack of lunch. There are two sit down restaurants (we liked both) and all the vendors sell take out fish treats of all kinds.

Had lunch there with a group of colleagues in a small restaurant just as you enter the market. I had herring - the best herring I ever had - it came with lingonberry sauce, small salad and a mound of potatoes (which was too much for me). It was called "operaherring" - I recommend! Friendly and efficient service too!

An interesting place to visit, in the centre of Gothenburg. We bought a bag of local cooked shrimp, and then sat down at a picnic table outside and peeled and ate them right on the spot. An unbeatable snack. They also sell meals ready to take out, which can be eaten on the tables outside. It was intersting to see... More

Loved this quirky place and the food was delicious and very popular with locals. I loved looking down onto the fish market below.

Just some tips: 1. It's a destination both for locals and tourists, so the place is always crowdy. 2. Check the opening hours of the Fish Church before your visit. It's important! It opens late and closes early and I assume that the best time to visit is a lunch (it's always busy). 3. Two restaurants located inside/outside in the... More

A translation of the name Feskekörka suggest this is a church for the fish, and in some way this is true as this is where some of the fish has their last rest. The building is located in the center of the city and right by the canal. Here fishermen have sold for 100 years. Today there are a handful... More
