Free to enter and see this beautiful church. Look out for the windows from the 'Our Father' prayer. Great example in its history, of being welcomed as strangers and being given space to pray. Who are our strangers now? Do we give them, freely, a...More

I found it to be really interesting attraction in the middle of Gamla Stan. Its interiors are very nice and in my opinion nicer than the Storkyrkan.

Ensconced in the Old Stockholm,this Church is hard to view from the outside. The interior is interesting with an elevated enclosed viewing gallery. The Old organ is being restored. There are frequent concerts and the acoustics are good.

One of the oldest churches in Stockholm, with German Sunday service. Part of the old town (Gamla Stan), that alone is worth a visit.

Just a short walk of the touristy old town you can find this hidden treasure. It's free entrance and if you find yourself close by, you should pay it a visit. The beautiful stained glass windows is what's making this church special.

Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home
to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central
island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small
island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous
Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)
