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.

With a few different places to buy lunch, and a huge assortment of fresh-fish sellers, this cultural icon is a must-see for any visitor.

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

It's different! The location on the river side and a lovely sunny day added to the visit. Inside are two rows of fish counters which you would see in many place. The big bonus was the quality of the food. You can buy prepared salads & fish dishes but I recommend that you just walk up & down & mix... More

Interesting building in a pleasant setting. Lots of fish on sale. One can also buy pre packed fish lunches to eat outside but they are overpriced in my view. On the first floor there is a restaurant.The tables are very close together but food looked OK. I would eat instead at the Saluhallen .

Interesting shaped building. We arrived about 10 o'clock and the market was amazing. So much fresh fish and delicious looking salads. For those that don't appreciate fish the smell was off putting, but for me it added to the experience!
