German Church, Stockholm

(4.1/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
While strolling through the city's Old Town, stop by German Church and admire the impressive architecture and collection of religious ornaments. The church is dedicated to Saint Gertrude, the protector of the guild of German merchants. The guild's headquarters was transformed into a church in the 18th century. From its 86 m (282 ft) steeple adorned with gargoyles, to the Baroque interior and large stained-glass windows, the structure is an architectural masterpiece. The church has a long history as one of Sweden's foremost centers of religious music. Today many organ concerts are organized here, and the site is famous for choir singing and melodic bells. Admission to the church is free. Make German Church part of your personalized Stockholm itinerary using our Stockholm vacation trip planner.

  • This small church is worth a visit. Built in the 15th century. at the time of the Hanseatic League, is dedicated to Saint Gertrude, patron saint of travellers and merchants. It has a towering Spire, a beautiful pulpit in ebony. Beautiful real Forum covered with gilding.
