Interesting "food court"

If you love seafood, this is your mecca. Dozens of seafood stands ready to serve different seafood dishes. The smell is...overwhelming... but not if you love seafood.

Markets are always worth a visit - they give you an insight into the local community. This one is no exception, the building is interesting and if you also like fish you can either purchase or eat at the food bar inside. There is a fairly new sculpture outside and a little further on, by the waterside, elongated benches for... More

I had heard alot about this place and so we went down to look. The building is amazing and there is no getting away from that. But thats all. I expected to see fantastic hustle and bustle of fish selling. Prawn sandwiches with huge pink prawns spilling out like nowhere you had ever seen. Instead it feels like a coporate... More

Great fish market located in Gothenburg. There are seafood restaurants within the market, but if the weather is sunny grab one of the picnic tables outside and enjoy a seafood feast bought from one of the market stalls.

As Sweden is expensive for everything this place is nothing different. Get the 6 tram from central which drops off just across the road or walk along the water/through the park from the avenue. It's open 10-6 every weekday and 10-3 on a weekend. I'd suggest popping in for a look on the way to visit haga, or popping in... More

Found the outside more interesting than the inside. Not particularly big and the restaurants very expensive. We did have a prawn baguette between us to take away and that was delicious. Has to be seen for its quirkiness.

The Fish Church is pointed out on most tourist tours and while the architecture of the building should be admired there is not much else to see inside other than a fish small and unremarkable market.

This is a typical fish market. There wasn't anything special about it. The restaurants inside were so tiny you would never be able to get a table. Pretty on the outside, so you can just walk past it and no need for anything else

The novel thing about the fish market is that it looks like a church from the outside. That's where the novelty ends, though. I'm not sure why this appears to be rated so highly, unless there is a high demand for fish while visiting Gothenburg. I get the impression that the locals wouldn't buy their fish here, it seems mostly... More

If you are fond of fish, visit this place. If you want to eat real good fish, visit Fish Church. If you just want to hang out in a nice environment - visit the fish church. The best of all. Go to the fish church. Buy some prawns or shellfish or whatever you like - take´em outside, sit on the... More
