Lovely church in the heart of old Stockholm

We stopped here for a quick visit while walking through the alleys of Gamla Stan. The church is not big and has a calm and dark ambiance, even on a sunny day.

Even though I was churched out at this point, this church was a nice change and interesting to see. The giant pillars in the middle of the church certainly made it feel even smaller than it was, and the organ, altar and walls were impressive. It's worth a visit.

This church was very beautiful inside! It was a bit different then most with its dark wood and almost photographic-like pictures on the ceilings of the seating areas. Worth checking out. The pipe organ is beautiful

My favorite of Stockholm churches, although we had to cut our visit short, ushered out on account of a baptism ceremony. It looks comparatively very new, very clean and bright, with brilliant stained glass and fantastic decorations inside.

Nice little place to drop in and view the interior. No admission is charged. Some beautiful artwork and stained glass along with the typical features you would see in a church.

This German Church is in Gamla Stan, or the Old Town. It is in an alley a block away from the Nobel Museum. You enter the grounds from the Northern Gate. Above this wrought-iron Gate, there is a golden image of the patron saint, and an inscription that translates to " Fear God! Honor the King!". Once inside the gardens,... More
