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

A beautiful and unusual place to visit (compared with other tourist sites). Easily reached by public transport, the cemetery is a short walk from the station. We visited on the afternoon of 2 November when the cemetery was full of candles and many visitors, but the sense of peace was nevertheless present. We were only there for a short time... More

The environment at Skogskyrkogården (The Woodland Cemetery) is very special. It is a place of rest in many respects, a large cemetery south of Stockholm. It can be reached going with the underground to the station with the same name as the graveyard (Skogskyrkogården) on the Green Line with the final station Farsta Strand. The cemetery was landscaped as a... More

this is a wonderful place for memories and especially thought provoking on All Saints Day when the Cemetry is visited by thousands of visitors. It is a UN Heritage Site, immaculately kept.

The biggest and most peaceful cemetery i've ever visited. It is also the scariest one! We were walking there as the sun set and the light began to fade, and the place began to become creepier by the minute. It was really amazing. - 2011 -

Big cemetry with forest that made me calm down,an oasis to relax in. Minneslunden at top of hill looks magic and is a good spot to meditate and stress down in. Followed path of the seven wells 888 meters long in to the forest that got darker and darker. My plan was to find the seven wells but they were... More

Lovely cemetery for both the living and dead. Lovely walk and beautiful views on top of mounds and through tall thick woodland. A nice visit !

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
