The German Church (in Sweden it's called Tyska kyrkan) is a church in Stockholm's old town, Gamla Stan. It was build for the many German tradesman living in Stockholm in the 16th century. I didn't went in, but it's also beautiful from the outside!

Originally gothic church with baroque decoration. The "king's gallery" and the pulpit are nice and interesting, but otherwise it's a pretty average church. You can pass by and go in but I'd recommend the Storkyrkan or the Riddarholmskyrkan on Gamla Stan.

This is a little church hidden in the middle of Gamla Stan. You will probably walk past it when visiting the Old Town area. In case you do, it is certainly worth a visit. A peaceful place for you to sit down and meditate for a while.

A very fine church in Stockholm and we arrived here as there was singing going on inside. We sat for a while and listened. Different in style from other churches we have visited, this on is worth seeing.

..in the middle of bustling Gamla Stan, you'll find this beautiful church from the 16th century in a peaceful wrought iron fence enclosed quadrangle. Lovely stained glass windows, fabulous organ - find out if there is a concert during your stay in Stockholm or join the congregation on Sunday for services - so worth it ! Amazingly this church built... More

This is a fantastic old church in Gamla Stan(old town). Big feature when you look at Gamla Stan. Typical German style construction. The stain glass are just awesome. Beautiful gold gilding everywhere. To top all this entrance is free. The wrought iron around the chuch is also beautiful. All in all a highly recommended visit.

This church has 2000 members! And what a lovely place they worship in, founded in 1571 by German merchants and craftsmen who settled in the city with almost complete influence over Stockholm in the 18th c. It has a twin nave (an extension of an earlier smaller church), royal gallery and ebony and alabaster pulpit. There are some wonderful paintings... More
