We visited this church, you can see the church spire from just about anywhere around the Old Town. Inside was nice, but not spectacular. After stepping inside, we could see enough of the church that there seemed to be little point in paying the admission...More

This catches your attention when you're walking around Gamla Stan and is very impressive from the outside. You can walk into the church for free but if you want to look around it costs around 30 SEK. The inside is very ornate but after having...More

I was expecting a somewhat austere interior so as not to distract from the word of god. I was greatly surprised by what I found. The windows are large and provide a light and airy interior. The stained glass is vibrant. The pulpit, alter and...More

The church stands tall and high over other buildings in Gamla Stan. Was built to cater to the German community who exists in Stockholm. Look see, admire and be inspired to enter the church. Stay calm and peaceful.

try to catch an organ rehearsal or concert in this beautiful church - we did and it was very impressive and worth the time. Even if not visiting for the music, well worth stopping in to see baroque decoration

The church is very noticeable on the outside, with its grand spire and lovely walkway that it makes you stop and read all the information about it at the entrance gate. It's interesting that the history of this church dates back to the middle ages...More

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)
