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.

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

Great photo opportunity here. Very scenic, and very peaceful surroundings. Be careful with walking over big boulders to get your photos, some hidden water holes.

Most people going up the winding streets to this large church, doesn't enter it, but stay outside to watch the view of the city. On evenings in the summer and especially weekends, it's common to find students and other younger people partying and drinking here.
