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.

Fish Church, Gothenburg Reviews

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • I expected much more from the popular fish market that is rated as one of the best activities on Trip Advisor. The building exterior is nice for photos although I would recommend taking a photo from across the canal as well to get a full view. There were two shops inside selling fresh fish. Aside from a restaurant with very high prices and a small place with fish/shrimp salads and sandwiches to go, there's not much to see. Underwhelming is a good word to describe it. The nearby Saluhall has much better dining options (including seafood). Maybe because we went on a weekday it was quieter, might be better over the weekend. The public restroom can only be used with SEK coins or a 1 or 2 € coin.

  • Always a pleasure to stroll around this iconic building of Gothenburg. The shrimp and fish salads to go are just insanely good! Worth a visit, and a chill outside next to the water.

  • Fish mongers in an old church. Eat a la carte at the restaurant on the left entrance, or pick your bites from the vendors and eat on the benches purse the right entrance. That is, in the summer. Not sure how it works in the winter.
