Don't think it as a normal cemetery, it is a park more than a cemetery. It was very silent, green and peaceful. I watched a film, eat my lunch and read a book in here without disturb by anything. It is also a good place for running or cycling.

The surroundings are really nice but of course it is not very joyful since it is a cemetery. I can recommend it if you have nothing else to do (or are really into cemeteries) to go there and walk around for an hour or so.

We visited Skogskyrkogården during the all saints' day, where people bring candles and flowers to the deceased. Surprisingly, it didn't feel like in cemetery at all. It's a very beautiful place.

We've visited this cemetery because it's a UNESCO World Heritage site. But many people from Stockholm - locals visit it often, not only to pay tribute to their deceased ones, but also to have a nice, pleasant and quiet walk. I like the architectonical decisions in making this cemetery - it's located in the middle of a forest, very green,... More

I was staying at a friends house nearby and when she said we should go and have a walk through the cemetery I was a little perplexed. But this place is lovely and serene and beautiful. Having a local with me she could explain the different building and show me to Greta Garbos burial site which made it much more... More

I was supprised to hear that this cemetery is a Unesco world heritage site, so we decided to visit it in February. Its quite outside the centre of Stockholm, but the subway gets you there efficiently. Its a peculiar site to visit, carefully landscaped, but during the winter it gets a bit gloomy. During spring and summer you can get... More

This special Nordic cemetary is UNESCO-World heritage (1994). We visited a cold January afternoon around sunset. The snow helped to get orientated. It was possible to enter the chapel of Faith. In one of the other chapels there was a funeral ceremony. Our advice is: don't visit as a tourist in winter-time.

Sure, visiting a cemetery might seem like an odd while on holidays but... My reason for visiting Skogskyrkogården was to stand alongside the infamous "Entombed - Left Hand Path cross" (see the photo in this article: http://cvcomics.com/requiem/?p=236 or Google "Entombed Left Hand Path band photo"). I grew up listening to Swedish death metal and always wondered where the Entombed band... More

Although graveyards aren't a "go to" place for many, this is the most beautiful grave yard I have ever been too. It is so tranquil and enjoyable to walk around. I would go here uptime times. They serve great cake and coffee in the cafe as well. Also on the first Saturday after Halloween, try make it to All Saints... More

Skogskyrkogården is a lovely spot to have a walk, very peaceful and relaxing. My girlfriend (a Swede) advised me that they are many famous Swedes buried within the cemetry, which as a Englishman was pretty wasted on me, as my knowledge of famous Swedes is fairly limited. However I did enjoy the tranquily of the scenery and the woods, a... More
