Riddarholm Church (Riddarholmskyrkan), Stockholm

4.1
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.

  • Together with the Town Hall, Riddarholmen Church make the most outstanding landmark of the city with beautiful architecture!
  • Riddarholmen Church is one of the oldest buildings in Stockholm, parts of it dating to the late 13th century, when it was built as a greyfriars monastery.
  • It is mostly closed. But even outside it is stunning
  • It looks interesting outside, but it is closed from Dec to Apr
  • Less glamourous than Gamla Stan's big churches but a beautifulcold church. Admittedly nicer on the outside though.
