Nice interior

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.

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.

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

Built in 1571 for the German popultaion in Stockholm. Later altered several time. The KIngs gallery is fantastic! The whole church is worth to visit.

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.
