Built in 1914 and standing at 60m high, this USA great spot to sit and soak in the sun while visiting tourist spots, seeing the fireworks on New Year's Eve or just a great view of the city. You can see Göta Alv and Mich more fr.o.m. Up there.

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.

Not very easy to get there, on top of the hill, it will take you a while to walk up to it. Ill give you a hint.

A church with an impressive story ( rumor has it the tower was filled with dynamites during the second world war, if the enemies would have come close enough the tower would have been blowed up) Takes some effort to walk up but easy to jump on the bus nr 60

Good solid church on the hill typical of the time. Not elaborate like European construction. Not a good wet day walk tho.

It is the church that you can see from the shores of the river almost from everywhere in the city. The church..don't really worth a visit, but the views of the city and of the river valley are fabulous

The view from Masthuggskyrkan is very nice, but the church itself isn't worth visiting really. It's a nice enough church but nothing special.

The church is placed in a really nice viewpoint to all Gothenburg. Is is a historical monument well preserved. I really liked the exterior of the church (there are wooden doors in stone walls that give the place a medieval look). Interior is quiet, clean decorated and perfect for taking a break.
