Feskekora looks like a church from the outside, but inside is a great fish market thus earning the name “Fish church”. Built in 1874 the architect, Victor von Gegerfelt was inspired by the Norwegian wood Stave churches and the Gothic stone churches this building is the result of the two architectural styles. Whether you plan to shop for fish or not, a quick visit is necessary while in Gothenburg. There are two other food halls Salluhallen (Stora Saluhallen 46) and Saluhall Briggen (Nordhemsgatan 28) that both sell Nordic delicacies and are the perfect place to find inspiration for new recipes. Saluhall Briggen specializes more in restaurants where you can stop for a quick bite or pick up something for a picnic whereas at Saluhallen you’ll find stalls upon stalls filled with goodies to buy for your own kitchen. No matter what weather Gothenburg brings you, you can enjoy a little piece of nature in the city. The Garden Society of Gothenburg or Trädgårdsföreningen has a wonderful series of gardens where you can experience almost every type of biosphere and transport yourself instantly. The most popular of these gardens is the Palm House where it seems like you’ve walked into a tropical paradise housed in a historical greenhouse and also a great place for Instagram pictures. Complete your visit with a fika at the garden’s café, Rosenkaféet. The opening hours change depending on the season, so check before your visit. The Botanical Garden is also another great place to escape the sometimes dreary Swedish cold. Entrance to the gardens is free while entrance to the greenhouse is 20 SEK for those older than 18. Located in the middle of a shopping district, Domkyrkan (Gothenburg Cathedral) stands tall. The current church was built in 1815 and is the third different church to stand on that spot. It is free to walk in, admire the architecture and learn more about the church’s interesting history. The church holds concerts from time to time so check the website or the church bulletin board in case there is one scheduled during your stay.
