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. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to German Church and many more Stockholm attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Stockholm trip tool .

  • Beautifully decorated Church. When we visited the Church was the concert here. The Church has beautiful stained glass Windows on the walls. Stockholm has more magnificent churches than this, but this is certainly been a visit.

  • Smaller Church than I have seen in other European cities, but it has some magnificent stain glass windows. Very charming place to visit from the 13th century.
  • Looks grand and magnificent from outside. However inside was quite small and dark.
  • Charming church that in some ways is more impressive than Storkyrkan.
  • They close at 3pm everyday, please be aware and be here early :)
  • Went here for our friends wedding. The wedding was nice but the church, meh
