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.

Worth a visit if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and all the souvenir shops of Gamla Stan. It is a UNESCO world heritage site. The cemetary is very peaceful and harmonises brilliantly with the forest. Visitor centre and nice cafe too.

An incredible experience. The perfect communion of man and nature, both solemn and deeply touching. You won't regret the visit, as this is really a place where you can be in touch with yourself.

You will probably come here only if you are, like me, a serial chaser of UNESCO World Heritage sites. It is a bit out of Stockholm center, reached by a T line in about 20 minutes. A well laid-out and architected cemetery, it is in the end no more than than - a cemetery.

Very interesting place: so totally different from the cementaries I know: the streets have the names and even the bus goes there. But it is still very peaceful place.

This is a lovely grave yard, and there is some nice artwork, but unless you have an abundance of time, or are staying nearby, there are better places to go if your time is limited. Certain times of the year it has some nice trees/flowers blooming, but the landscaping is not remarkable most of the year. ( I cycle by... More

Skogskyrkogarden is a nice cemetary. Average in my opinion. Went here because it was a UNESCO world heritage site. Read the reasons for making it a WHS but not really clear in my view it is really that unique. I guess with the right prose and politics, nearly anything can be included by UNESCO.

This is a Unesco World Heritage Site, and I see why. I've been to many cemeteries during my travels and this one is Huge. It is a very large, green, and beautiful place. We felt as though we were in the woods camping at times. There are many different sections where the headstones are, and it appears there are regulations... More

It was a strange but good choice to visit Skogskyrkogården, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, when we only had two days in Stockholm. The design of the cemetery is timeless and the superb landscaping is elegant in a way that invites contemplation. Climb the hill with the interesting approach designed to cheat perspective so that the hill seems much higher,... More

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.
