Riddarholm Church (Riddarholmskyrkan), Stockholm

(260+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
Home to the burial ground of the Swedish monarchs, Riddarholm Church (Riddarholmskyrkan) represents one of the oldest buildings in the capital city and is used to this day for commemorative burials (although the congregation dissolved in 1807). The church was originally built in the 13th century as a monastery, but was closed and transformed into a Protestant church following the Protestant Reformation. Of particular interest are the coats of arms of passed knights of The Order of Seraphim that hang from the church walls.

  • The island and church are definitely worth at least a little of your time while in Stockholm. Beautiful architecture and nice views.
  • Just a church you can see the tower from anywhere one you are in Gamla Stan. It is located in Ridderholmen island in the and is part of Gamla Stan
  • Just church ..and it's famous in Stockholm and you can see a sea its near from church
  • As a native of Lützen a "have to do" for Stockholm visiting. Ther is the sarcophagus of Gustavus II Adophus. The King who was killed in the battle of Lützen on 6th November 1632.
  • Probably one of the most overlooked attractions of Stockholm. Many royal tombs. A must.
