Description:

The Unesco World Heritage Skogskyrkogården is beautiful all year round,...

The Unesco World Heritage Skogskyrkogården is beautiful all year round, much due to the unique way it is woven into the landscape. The cemetery never closes, so you can easily acces the World Heritage when you prefer, throughout the year. More than 2,000 funeral ceremonies take place at the Skogskyrkogården each year. This means that the five chapels are in frequent use and therefore closed to the public. If you are interested in the chapels and their interiors, come along for a public guided tour or book a private tour. We also have audio and visitor's guides, which you can download prior to your visit. Please visit our website for more information.

This place isn't as publicized as it deserves. It's an UNESCO site. Yes, it's a graveyard, but it's beautiful. It isn't a graveyard with trees, but it's a pine forest with graves. Everything is simple and serene, not lugubrious. Graves are sober, with just a rock and a little plant. There are some chapels in which are celebrated funerals; simple... More

Skogskyrkogården is a beautiful place. I'd recommend you go right before the sunset. It's lights up beautifully at night.

Truly a masterpiece. Worth a visit just for the ambience and serenity or to study Swedish architecture at its best.

I visited on Halloween and it was absolutely stunning as locals light candles throughout the cemetery which creates an unforgettable experience.

This rather recent cemetery, is unusual in how it blends seamlessly into the forest, while maintaining a modern feel. Greta Garbo's understated grave adds an air of mystery. There's a lot of walking to be had in the cemetery, if one arrived by public transportation.

I was lucky enough to be taken there by a person from Stockholm, who's also likes architecture, and helped me to enjoy it even more, is an unique experience, beautiful forest and landscapes, and if you go please stop by the cafeteria, they do a good chocolate and pastries :).

It's easy to get here by taking the subway. It's a huge cemetery , beautifully located. Everyday about 10 burials take place here. Which means that the chapels are closed for the public most of the time, which is understandable but a shame. Also the information center was closed. We were a bit disappointed by our visit

It’s not everyone’s cup of tea to stroll a graveyard but Skogskyrkogarden is a different story. It is like a beautiful, huge, tranquil park with mature trees, singing birds, alleys, chapels and of course graves of different sort. A wonderful place to go on your own for quiet reflection. The pine forest is a powerful statement of Skogskyrkogarden. Though rooted... More
