German Church, Stockholm
(4.1/5 based on 200+ 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.

  • German church or St. Gertrude's Church is located in the old town (Gamla Stan) and drew attention to its century Spire, has become elevated almost to ninety meters. Was built in the XVI century the community of immigrants from the German States. The Interior is decorated in the Baroque style.

  • It's a nice church to visit if you're in the neighborhood, but not worth a detour unless you're already there. 
  • We arrived by chance and it was worth entering is cozy enough ornate style as the churches in Germany! Take advantage to see her between two visits allows for a moment of reflection.
