It is the church that you can see from the shores of the river almost from everywhere in the city. The church..don't really worth a visit, but the views of the city and of the river valley are fabulous

The church is placed in a really nice viewpoint to all Gothenburg. Is is a historical monument well preserved. I really liked the exterior of the church (there are wooden doors in stone walls that give the place a medieval look). Interior is quiet, clean decorated and perfect for taking a break.

This was a photo stop on a guided tour, right after we had arrived in Goteborg from Denmark via ferry.

They were very good despite the fog when I was... More

Kyran was built in 1911 and was inaugurated in 1914. Masthuggskyrkan is one of the most important landmarks in Gothenburg. You just need to visit the church on the mountain.

Loved the wood interior of this lovely church. We met the priest and he was charming and very informative. The inside is not to be missed with hidden gems throughout.
