  • Highly recommend the guided tour (in English) on Sunday morning, during which you get a comprehensive understanding of the background and get to go in the chapel. Wonderful place and a must-see for...  more »
  • Interesting graveyard that is located in a forest setting. Graveyards amongst trees. If you are inclined towards gothic or nature, this might be a cool and novel experience. Not a must do in...  more »
  • This is billed as UNESCO site. This place is too far from city proper. This has nothing interesting to offer. Bland and over praised.  more »
  • Lovely and peaceful cemetery. It really feels like you are in the woods. If cemeteries is your thing you should definitely go!
  • Camera, a good camera is not a must if you are heading to a cemetery, right?! But what if it's a registered piece of art with UNESCO?! The atmosphere of Skogskyrkogården is such a unique combination of art, architecture and nature(mainly forest) that it easily succeeds the "death" concept. Its is alive. Make sure that you go there, it's a public place, open to all and I am sure you will enjoy singing of birds in few hours of peace and meditation experience
  • The place is definitely worth visiting, I’ve never thought that cemetery can be so well organised and designed. The territory is really large and it seems that there’s no sense to go far from the entrance, the most noticeable sights are there. Hope you’ll as struck by the place as I was. Notice work hours, it closes early
  • This a forest cemetery with huge spaces, pines, old gravestones, the smell of tar and the singing of birds. This is an unusual cemetery – it is included in the UNESCO world heritage list and is a monument of functionalism in architecture, and the architects who worked on the project managed to use the natural landscape very well.
  • UNISCO world heritage site!! The serene, peaceful and beautiful 🧡 place. Place to sit and relax the serenity of the place.
