History about the fishing in Gothenburg
The fishing have always been an important part in the history about Gothenburg. Here at Fiskekörkan you can get a feeling about how it was.......

The first trade with fish in Gothenburg was held at Lilla Torget and during that time the name of the place was Fisktorget. More fishing places in town, was among others at the big canal in the city below the German Church, Gustav Adolfs Torg and Stora Bommen. 1849 the only place for fishtrade was held at Rosenlund. After that it was Feskekörkan.

Now a times, outside Feskekyrkan in the canal you can see people fishing. If they have good luck, they may get a salmon at their fishing rod.

Here you also can eat a good meal and get the fish for the day served at your plate.
