Interesting sight

Quite small and worth a wander around during your foot tour of Gothenburg . Next to the river, of course, and full of fish and seafood, of course.

It is for sure an attraction point in Goteborg,. All kind of fish, including oisters and lobsters at a reasonable price. We had good food at lunch.

The Paddan tour boats pass by this fascinating structure (it really looks like a church!) and although it's great for taking photos, the inside did not live up to the hype. I learned later that the fish market itself closes in the early afternoon and only the restaurant remains open so if you want to see fish, go early in... More

The church-like form of Gothenburg's fish market is, indeed, interesting. However, if someone expects an orgy of seafood in the inside, like in Tokyo's fish market, will be deceived. The surroundings and the location on the city's south channel can, though, be charming on a sunny day.

The name of this buiding fascinated us. It is the local fish market and got its name because the building looks like a church. When I heard about the Fish Market I expected something on a larger scale so I was disappointed by its scope. While the building is interesting the interior is merely a collection of small stalls selling... More

The fish Church, Feskekörka, is just a 5 minute walk from the city center. IT is devote to the sale of fresh seafood but has also a couple of nice eating places for lunch. The best is restaurant Gabriel. Try their daily catch or their fishsoup. Reserve if you want to eat between 1200 and 1330. Another option, if the... More

One not too miss. Eat in, or outside on wooden benches in the sun. A good selection of just about every sort of locally caught fish and shellfish, but the crabs were Canadian? Don't be too late or your choice can be restricted. Crab soup was all gone by 2p.m..

It looks like a church from the outside but inside it is full of fresh fish and seafood for sale. There are also few restaurants inside and you can also sit on the outside and eat or by the canal to enjoy your newly bought shrimps. Lots of athmosphere.

the architecture is striking, the fish market is busy (be there before noon, after that it was all closed except for a restaurant). this is really more of a "take a picture and move on" nothing really to see inside the building unless you want to purchase some seafood.

I had to go and see it just for its name but a huge takeaway salad of prawns with fresh bread and a choice of sauces was a feast of stunningly-fresh fish. There are picnic tables outside to eat your catch of the day and a park on the other side of the canal.
