Feskekörka (Swedish: [ˈfɛ̂sːkɛˌɕœrːka]; standard: Fiskkyrkan, "fish church") is an indoor fish market in Gothenburg, Sweden, which got its name from the building's resemblance to a Neo-gothic church. It opened on 1 November 1874, and was drawn by the city architect Victor von Gegerfelt. Feskekörka is an institution in Gothenburg as well as a tourist magnet, housing one of the city's oldest trades, fishing.
Apart from a fish market, there is also a fish- and seafood restaurant in the building.

Fresh fish, well prepared and served by friendly stuff. I had the lemon sole and it was very tender. Reservation is needed and prices are fair. Parking is available for around Euro 2 per hour. We certainly come back.

Not huge, but a lot seafood selections market. There are restaurants there. Or you can just grab something from the seafood market and eat it at the standing table there, like us!

Awesome place. Small but great spot for fresh seafood and we brought some amazing cured/smoked salmon with delicious flavours

Coolest place to get seafood while at the same time looking at Gothenburg's heritage.

Expensive. Each plate more or less 25 euro considering "fast food atmosphere". Nice to see from the outside.

They have a wide variety of seafood, a small restaurant and even some ready-to-eat snacks/salads. The building looks quite different from usual fish markets, and is totally worth a visit!

Great fish market with three restaurants inside. Try any of them for a delicious meal or buy directly from the fish vendors!

Lovely selection of fresh and smoked fish, but quite a bit smaller than we were expecting!

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.

Actually nothing special. Many port towns have such fish markets and some of them have much more to buy and taste.

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.

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.

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!
