Went to Masthuggskyrkan on a cold winter afternoon. The church was closed, therefore we were not able to see inside. There is parking in the area at the back of the church. It’s an ordinary church with good location.

Started in 1914, the church is located on a high hill which gives commanding views of Goteborg, especially Goteborg harbor. The church itself has an interior reminiscent of a Viking Stave church, with a beautifully timbered ceiling, and timbers which exhibit the work of skilled...More

We used the tram to get up here and the views are good. Unfortunately the tower tours are twice a day and I missed that.

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
