There are a couple of eateries in the fish market, but on sunny day the attraction is to buy a large bag of prawns and sit outside on the tables provided and shell them at your leisure. You can also buy fresh seafood and salads to eat outside. Or if you're staying in self-catering accommodation, you could go back with... More

Difficult to see as expected more church like building, however during a guided tour I learned that the fish selling women in Gothenburg had this fish-market church built to improve their work conditions. The story however was more interesting than the building, it was worth looking at but you only need a few minutes for this.

Whether it has been originally a church or straight away built as fish market is not so clear. For sure the look a like as church is impressive and even more once inside to discover the impressive fish market, opened in 1874 and still in full swing. Curious but interesting. Recommended.

Dont waste your time visiting. As a fish enthusiast was expecting mush more from what is termed as a 'fish market' ... few outlets and restaurants serving fish only till early afternoon.

Shared prawn sandwich and a selection of herrings and enjoyed a chilled white wine and husband a beer. Sat outside on a lovely summers day. Unfortunately, had a problem with our choice of table we were kind of jammed in until the people on the next table got up.

This is a fish market which fits well into the description of Gothenburg. The fish industry in Gothenburg is big due to the location next to the sea and at this place you can choose from a huge variety of fresh fish. There's also some small restaurants where you can sit down and have something to eat. The building itself... More

Nothing special, really. Simply a fish market (an expensive one) in a church-like building. Spend your time somewhere else.

A small fish market, with great displays. There are 3 small places to eat ( sea food naturally) . Took us some time to find it due to the amount of construction work in the area. Opens at 10 am and be prepared to fight with the locals to get in.
