Fish Church - Review
If anyone is not very religious, then take him or her to the Fish Church (Feskekorka) of Gothenburg. It isn’t the kind of church where one prays though. From the outside it is a church but it is not a church in essence. It is actually an indoor fish market which has the resemblance with a Gothic Church. The Fish Church of Gothenburg was established in the 1874 when the wives of the fishermen needed a building to sell the fish from.
As an answer to their requests, the then city architect built this fish market and gave it a gothic church-like touch to attract tourists. What a wonderful idea it was! Representing fishery, the oldest trade of Sweden, the building eased the task of handling the cold, dead fishes for the fishermen. The Fish Church received quick fame as it is the only fish church that has existed in the world till today. This large and beautiful fish market is home to a variety of fish vendors. The fresh sea food is perhaps of the kind you have never seen in your life. The display of the fish and the lovely atmosphere leaves the visitors amazed! Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Gothenburg itinerary 1 day.

- The most interesting thing is that though it is not a church but the people often come here to get married. There are four stalls and restaurants where the travellers can enjoy wonderful dinning.

Fish Church, Gothenburg Reviews
It’s also known as the fish Church. Although I really like the building itself, fish is just not my type of food... however, I saw a lot of people were standing and eating, more people are buying. I suppose the seafood inside should be really fresh. I would recommend anyone who’s interested, even just to see the only “fish Church” in the world. ;) was my time of my year in a long way with a friend to a great friend and my and my arms are in my life I will always thematically your time and you know that we are so happy and you proud and to your help father I hope will have a you and your you and my family thank goodness.
A friend had told me about this spot translated into “fish church” in English and recommended I spot by for some oysters and local beer so I did exactly that. This small, cute fish market sits along the river in a historic building. It’s a great place to pick up some seafood to have at home or grab a bite in one of the few restaurants available here. We went upstairs and ordered as instructed - oysters and a few local beers for an afternoon snack. The oysters were so fresh and delicious! There’s outdoor seating as well if it’s a nice day to sit by the river.
Amazing seafood but the "must see" is Gabriel restaurant. The owner is so nice and fun, aswell as the team! Beautiful seafood
Lots of people, but they have an amazing restaurant under the rafters. It has the best fish soup in Sweden, hands down! Also a heck of a lot of different fish dishes (duh! Place is literally called "fish church")... The restaurant also have very good locally produced beers. Try the 'Rosenlunds ipa'. You can also buy different kinds of fresh fish, mussels, oysters and other shell fish in the different stalls. Well worth it to brave the crowds and visit this place!
I would have given four stars to the atmosphere and service, but the seafood was unexpectedly pricey. On the menu it said ‘market price’ or something similar about certain dishes, but i would say the price turned out to be much higher than the actual market price, even in the Swedish standard. But as I said the dish was good, the staff were friendly and it was overall a nice experience.
