The views of the city were not as impressive as I was expecting them to be and the church has somewhat limited hours and it is hard to know if you are able to enter and if so, where you should enter. The church is...More

This church was included on our coach tour of Gothenberg. The high location makes it a visible landmark from most parts of the city. We were fortunate to be driven to the location rather than having to walk up streets to the church. The high...More

There are many paintings on the walls. As it turned out, these are the exhibitions of local artists who are pre-recorded to show their works. I have never seen anything like this. There is a small separate room where you can put a stone with...More
