This fish market looks church-like but it's not. It's a fish market with many casual places to enjoy fresh seafood dishes and buy fish/seafood. It can be crowded so don't go too hungry.

One of the touristy experience that you have to go through but the fresh seafood makes this trip worth your time. You can have the option of getting prepacked cooked seafood and warm it up at the available microwave or choosing it over the counter or buy uncooked seafood or sit in/ take- away from the cafe/ restaurant.

An absolute must if you are in Gothenburg and love seafood. Everything is as fresh as it can be and for all tasts. Especially the the baguette with schrimsallad is fantastic. GO THERE IF YOU LIKE SEAFOOD.

Nothing special, only a couple of counters selling the same seafood indoor. No live seafood, most are either frozen or cooked. Nice surroundings and nice view. But The Fish Church itself is nothing special compared to other FIsh markets around the world and in other Nordic countries.

A tip for anyone visiting Fish church on mondays, some fish sellers and the second floor restaurant are closed. There is another fish restaurant open with a good selection.

The uniqueness of the place stays in the fact that a church has been transformed in a fish market. The outdoor architecture is interesting to observe however inside there is a typical Swedish fish market - goods are brought there and you cannot even feel a strong real smell of fresh fish.

This used to be a church for seamen, hence the name. Now it is a fresh fish market. If you want to buy fresh fish, they have it, of all varieties. There are also a couple of eateries, a cafe, and some of the vendors have take-out sandwiches and salads. If you get take-out, you can sit on benches or... More

Having researched Gothenburg before my trip, the Feskekörka (the Fish Church) was very soon at the top of my list of must visit places. Growing up close to a fishing village, seafood has always been one of my favourite cuisines so I had high expectations. Luckily the Fish Church delivered on every level. The main area was dominated by parallel... More
