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.

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.
