Oscar Fredrik Church (Swedish: Oscar Fredriks kyrka) is a church in Olivedal in Gothenburg, Sweden. It was drawn by Helgo Zetterwall and erected in the 1890s. Belonging to the Gothenburg Oscar Fredrik Parish of the Church of Sweden, it was opened on Easter Sunday 1893. The style is Neo Gothic, but the influence is not the Nordic gothic style but rather the style one can find in the large cathedrals in continental Europe. The church and the parish got its name from king Oscar II (Oscar Fredrik being his full name).

  • Was closed and I sadly didn't get inside. But it's "spiky" outlook is unique and attractive. One of the most beautiful temples in Scandinavia.

  • This is a nice colourful church which is worth the walk up to is. Make sure you do visit both the exterior and the interior as the latter is worth the look.

  • It is an eye-catching church both from inside and from outside. It reflects history to a great extend. If you are are a foreign visitor you may need to get information from somewhere suitable. The written information inside is provided in Swedish so it would be helpful to use translators of some kind.
  • Very beautiful from the outside! I haven't had the chance to visit inside yet.
