This somewhat understated and austere church is the burial place of Swedish monarchs, and a makes for an interesting visit for anyone interested in Swedish history.

We actually went into this church because we made a wrong turn and found ourselves next to it. There is an entry fee but it was free for us on the Stockholm card. It was definitely not my favorite. It's not a working church anymore. It's the historical burial place for the monarchy although they two most recent kings to... More

Beautiful church made of stone from the 1350´s. It is one of the first churches built in Stockholm. Inside there are the graves of every Swedish king burried since the XVII century.

On our way to the Royal Palace, we dropped by the Riddarholm Church. I felt that it was more of a memorial rather than a church. Multiple burials of Swedish monarchs surround the inside of the church. During the time of our visit, renovations are going on on certain parts of the church. I recommend skipping this though the entrance... More

Beautiful old church where royals are buried. Admission is covered by the Stockholm Card. Many sections of the church are closed to the public, but I still think it's worth a quick look. I did not stay for a guided tour. Please note there's no bathroom there.

My favorite part was the crests designed and on the wall for those who have been recognized by the Royal family. The history dates back yet they have those that have been included on the wall from my lifetime. The open vaults of family tombs is eye opening. Seeing the small caskets from the royal family that experienced a "bad... More

This church is a good contrast to the nearby Stockholm Cathedral. The architecture feels a lot older, and with more detail. Inside, there's some interesting tombs and lots of royal and aristocratic history. I think its worth the price of admission.

Beautiful old church, the burying place of Swedish royalty and nobility until a relatively short time ago. Built in 1290 and still amazing. Helpful docents will explain things and point out interesting areas, which one might otherwise miss.

A very interesting church, with not so much its architecture at the forefront, but rather many burials of royals and nobility. Various coats of arms cover most of the church walls. There is lots of information in English on who is buried where and the general history of the church.

this is where you will find all the old family crests for the old aristocratic Swedish families. if you have a Swedish heritage then you will surely enjoy a visit to the Riddarholm Church, which is in a fairly central location. it needs about an hour at least.
