Sometimes one tires of all the snapshot urban sights. This cemetery requires the right mood, the desire to roam and a couple of hours. It's south of town, an easy walk from its own subway stop. The UNESCO-listed structures have a minimalist eloquence, if not enough to justify a trip by themselves. We got a map on the way (and... More

There is no reason to go out of your way to visit this cemetery unless you are one of those people who likes to tick off world heritage sites. It is a 20 minute train ride south of the city centre, a T-bana stop is just outside the entrance. The cemetery covers a huge area but there are no maps... More

Lovely peaceful excursion. Easy to get to. Get the green underground line to Skogskyrkogården. Turn right out of exit and you are there. Stunning scenery. Many people walk up to Greta Gabo's tomb. Don't miss the lovely and gorgeous Karl & Kristina's café a stone's throw away from Greta Garbo's tomb. Check opening hours before going!

One of the few UNESCO world heritage sites built in the 20th century this is a peaceful woodland cemetery not far from the center of Stockholm. Catch the green line T-Bahn to the station of the same name, about a 20 minute journey from downtown. The setting with the gravestones interspersed among the towering trees is beautiful and incredibly peaceful.... More

Very large and mostly peaceful cemetery. Beautiful garden and interesting architecture. But not very impressive as for being UNESCO. Interesting to see on first Saturday of November for day of dead with all the candles and visitors.

We too are obsessed with UNESCO sites. And I studied art history. Am I missing something here? It was a beautiful cemetary. And I appreciate the modern architecture to an extent. But when I think of all the beautifully designed cemetaries that aren't on UNESCO (Arlington, Lviv, Vienna). There's no directions to famous graves, which was a bit disappointing, but... More
