Neighborhood: Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting: take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
How to get there

This was one of my first stops in Stockholm ! The Tower of Tyska Krykan is gorgeous soaring into the sky !! At first I thought I had found Riddarholmen !! Everything was just beautiful, the gate shining with gold royal markings, the lovely grounds. I didn't spend much time inside due to time constraints, but also fantastic. The ornate entrance was a splendor to see. The location is very good in Gamle Stan, so it's near a bunch of other sights, tourist traps, and restaurants that make for a great travelling experience.

My husband and I had a visit to this church that happened to coincide with the Stockholm Early Music Festival, this year using the Tyska Kyrkan as its venue space. Sublime does not begin to explain the experience listening to early Italian vocals expressed in the context of a small strings and winds and percussives chamber group. This experience was a rich feast for all the senses, and I urge readers to visit and listen to music in this space if the opportunity presents.

We visited this church, you can see the church spire from just about anywhere around the Old Town. Inside was nice, but not spectacular. After stepping inside, we could see enough of the church that there seemed to be little point in paying the admission fee. This church is worth seeing if you're in the area during (the rather limited) visiting hours, but I wouldn't go way out of my way to visit it,

I was expecting a somewhat austere interior so as not to distract from the word of god. I was greatly surprised by what I found.

The windows are large and provide a light and airy interior. The stained glass is vibrant. The pulpit, alter and organ are all richly decorated. A totally different experience to the one I was expecting. Well worth a visit.

The spire of the church marks the highest point in Gamla Stan. The German Church was originally built in the 14th century as a guild house for the German merchants of the Hansa. During the 16th century the guild house was converted into a church dedicated to St. Gertrude.

One of the oldest churches in Stockholm, with German Sunday service. Part of the old town (Gamla Stan), that alone is worth a visit.

We traipsed around until we found this nice old church, with its gaudy new organ, and interesting bit of German history in Stockholm. The copper spire is lovely, and the bells you hear around Gamla Stan originate here in their carillon.

This church has 2000 members! And what a lovely place they worship in, founded in 1571 by German merchants and craftsmen who settled in the city with almost complete influence over Stockholm in the 18th c. It has a twin nave (an extension of an earlier smaller church), royal gallery and ebony and alabaster pulpit. There are some wonderful paintings and three exceptional modern stained glass windows. We only just managed to visit because it closes at 3pm, but the curator could not have been more helpful or more informative, Don't miss it!

The church is located in Gamla Stan and very attractive from the inside. The church is built in European and Gothic architectural style. It was not very special because the lobby in not as big as other cathedral and some seat may get sight blocked by the columns. However the shrine is very beautiful and seems to be the most attractive item in the church, and the entrance fee is free.
