It was too late to go inside of the church,but the look from the top of this hill took my breath away! Too bad it was windy so we couldn't stay more longer :)

A very old church with fascinating architecture (if you cannot see it - look harder) and the great smell of wood. Interesting carvings a lovely idea of hanging little figurines in an alcove for each child christened at the church. There is parking available around the building and if they ever get clear days, there is probably a cracking view of the town below you. Drive up.

Ok, the actual church isn't spectacular but the view from the surrounds is well worth the climb! You can also get there by car.

This is without doubt my favorite church in Gothenburg. There is definitely something special about its location, architecture and atmosphere. I recommend this as the first stop for first-time visitors to the city. Built at the top of a hill, you have a great view to the West with Älvsborgs bridge and the ocean at a distance, and 50 meters away, on the other side of the church, you have a perfect view of city centre looking East. The church itself is beautiful and austere. The woodwork of the ceiling, the pillars and the choir are sublime yet unpretentious. Their is a certain mysticism about the place. It is usually not crowded so take a while to wander around and reflect and meditate. You will feel inspired. Look for the beautiful stone reliefs inside and outside which include classic biblical themes but also some more surprising elements! And don't miss the small round valve close to the entrance, it has wonderful acoustics.

We walked from town to this church, many do bus tours. It is a 40 minute walk and worth a visit. This church was built in 1914, it was designed to resemble what a Viking age church would have looked like. So many beautiful things to see inside, especially touching the tree of life.

Outside the church you will get a fantastic view of Gothenburg.
