Address: Kungstorget och Nordhemsgatan.


There are two indoor markets in Gothenburg, one at Kungstorget and the other one at Nordhemsgatan in Linnestaden. When you are in these areas it is hard to keep out of shopping.


Saluhallen i GöteborgSaluhallen Kungstorget also known under the name Stora Saluhallen. It was built at the boatyard at Götaverkan between the years 1888-1889.

The architect is Hans Hedlund. He has also drawn many other famous buildings in Gothenburg, as among others Televerkets hus at Kungsgatan and Dicksonska library at Allegatan.

Saluhallen is located at Kungstorget and sales with provisions started here Feb 1, 1889.

You can nearly shop everything here that are related to food, nice olives, fresh bread, biscuits, spices, strong cheese, choose from different meat. Yes this is the place both for your eyes and stomach. Your mouth is starting to water when you enter to the building.



Kungstorget i GöteborgKungstorget

Kungstorget is located inside the moat. Kungstorget was built 1847 after the cities fortifications were teared down.

Before this market area the bastion Johannes Dux were located at this place. It was one of the most strongest bastions around the city.


History Kungstorget

Before the start year 1848 all the market trade took place at Gustav Adolfs Torg.

After the 1800´s the place was used for selling wood and timber, the name of the place was then Trädtorget. A little bit later in the middle of the 1800´s the place had a new name, Nya Torget.

Year 1850 some semicircle bazaarhouses were put at the south side. These were used for selling different kind of stuff, there were approx around 75 stores. Most of them were owned by a fabricowner from Mark´s county.

Stora Saluhallen was built since the sale outside made the place dirty and bacteria were spread across the square. At that time the horses were everywhere and you can imagine the nice combination of animal and food sales.

Stora Saluhallen came as an complement to the north side in the beginning of 1889.

Meat Sales continued to be traded outside, but after that the Health Authority banned the sale, Saluhallen needed to be rebuilt to house more shops. Stora Saluhallen was expanded in 1906 and at the same time the huts on the sides were built in and they built another thirty new booths.

The bazaarhouses were teared down in November 1966.



Saluhallen Briggen

From the start this was Gothenburgs main firestation from year 1891 to 1990. After that it became a small copy of Stora Saluhallen at Kungstorget.

We think that Briggen is fairly unknown for many citizens in Gothenburg, were its located a little bit hidden in the area Linnestaden. Here you can shop delicacy and also have a nice lunch. The variations are plenty.



Fun facts:
