The view from Masthuggskyrkan is very nice, but the church itself isn't worth visiting really. It's a nice enough church but nothing special.

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. Unfortunately, it was a cloudy and foggy day, but enough of the fog had lifted to let us know the sights from here on a clear day would be spectacular. They were very good despite the fog when I was... More

The church itself is architecturally very interesting and was designed by Sigfrid Ericson in the National Romantic style, and the builder was Ivar Burman. 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. The church tower is 60 meters... More

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.

This church was built in the early 1900s but in a style to look back at old handicraft. Excellent woodwork. Dragonheads in the lamps. Stonewall where every stone was hand-picked. One of the greatest places to get a beautiful view in town. You see all the way to the ocean. In nighttime the view is even more beautiful. For families;... More

Whilst buying some gloves, the sales assistant suggested we visited here and even showed us on the map which team to get and where to get off. We were very glad we did! The view from the top is spectacular and well-worth the climb.
