Create an itinerary including Riddarholmen Church
Home to the burial ground of the Swedish monarchs, Riddarholmen Church 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.

  • Historical value, very impressive, the ticket lady knew greek and she was very polite! Definitely worth a visit
  • Church very similar to other churches in Europe. In my opinion it was nothing special. It is a short walk away from gamla Stan and student tickets are cheaper and it was nice that they did not look for student id. Apparently the reciept of the ticket here gets you a discount at the other museum at the royal palace.
  • One of the oldest buildings in Stockholm/Old Town. Previously a convent turned church and now it is the final resting place of generations of Royals. Interesting to visit. Scarce opening-hours so check in advance if it is open for visitors. Not free of admissions but worth the price (60 kr/adult and 30kr/child).
  • The church is actually the burial chapel with most of the royal family personal graves. Some are buried in the main chapel floor and being very old most of the inscriptions are not readable. There are many side chapels where family wise casket, most metallic and with gold and silver embossing are placed. Although some are cast in stones too. A place of historical importance and must visit place for tourists interested in the royal hierarchy of Sweden.
  • Beautiful design and colours specially at sunset time
