Stockholm Super Saver: Gamla Stan Walking Tour...

With very well informed and interested staff we got all our questions answered when we strolled in on a whim. We thought we would only stay for a few minutes, but ended up in staying for more than an hour as there is more to this church than meets the eye. Had we not had a meeting to go to we would have stayed even longer.

Riddarholmskyrkan is the resting place of Swedish Monarchs since 1632, with exception of Queen Christina. Magnus Ladulås 1290 and Karl Knutsson 1470, are also buried here. Built 1270, the church is in Gamla Stan but located on the island of Riddarholem, which is linked by a bridge to Stadsholmen. Stadsholmen is the main island of Gamla Stan, which tourists flock to, the church is only a short walk away. It is impossible to miss when approaching the island, as the spire towers above all else and the size of the church, dominates everything else around it.

We knew when we visited Stockholm, we weren’t going to have the opportunity to see inside Riddarholmskyrkan, which was disappointing, so we only got the exterior.

The website times are as follows – CLOSED December-April. May–September: Daily 10:00–17:00. October–November: Saturday–Sunday 10:00–16:00. Holidays times: Ascension Day–open. 6 June, Sweden's National Day–open. Midsummer Eve–open. Midsummer Day–open . No times are given for holiday openings.

The church is very old and served as the final resting place of many kings. The interior is very detailed and the tombs remain. It’s not rebuilt like a lot of European churches as Stockholm avoided WW2 bombing. It’s a must see. A great old church.

Used to be the burial church of the Swedish monarchs but no more nowadays. Very impressive , looks majestic, outshines all other buildings in Riddarholmen.

This church is truly unique. This has been the burial ground for members of the Swedish royal family. It is within easy walking distance of the Royal Palace in Stockholm and is worth visiting for any traveler. I would very highly recommend visiting this unique church.
