Overview
More
The Unesco World Heritage Skogskyrkogården is beautiful all year round, much due to the unique way it is woven into the landscape. The cemetery never closes, so you can easily acces the World Heritage when you prefer, throughout the year. More than 2,000 funeral ceremonies take place at the Skogskyrkogården each year. This means that the five chapels are in frequent use and therefore closed to the public. If you are interested in the chapels and their interiors, come along for a public guided tour or book a private tour. We also have audio and visitor's guides, which you can download prior to your visit. Please visit our website for more information.

Very tranquil and beautiful views. You can have a walk to enjoy the peaceful environment, and the design is beautiful. On 31th of October (All Saints Day) every year, people from around Stockholm and other areas come to Skogskyrkogården to light candles for loved ones...More

Elegantly incorporated into the landscape, Skogskyrkogarden is a wonderful location worth the quick detour from the city-scape. Bring your walking shoes and pick a day with good weather; it's easy to lose track of time while wandering through the park.

At this UNESCO-designated cemetery, it's worth learning about the thoughtful design that went into it. As an example, the steps leading up a meditation hill get smaller as one progresses as an analogy to the idea that grief gets easier over time. Walking among graves...More

This cemetery is located south of Stockholm - about 15 minutes with subway. The architecture of the cemetery is one of a kind and must be seen to be believed! Another reason to visit is that this is where the one and only Greta Garbo...More

This is a fantastic cemetery, listed by Unesco as a world heritage, and it's well worth its place. One of the world's greatest movie stars of all time, Greta Garbo, is buried here.

I visited Skogskyrkogarden in early December. I've visited a number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites on previous trips but few that date only to the early 20th century. This complex was designed by architects Erik Gunnar Asplund & Sigurd Lewerentz who competed with others for...More
