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!

I was intrigued by the fish church. It was built to shelter the fishmongers during the cold months. Great little building, right on the river. Worth a quick trip if you are in the neighborhood...good place to grab lunch.

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.

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.
