This church is in the middle of the old district. Free to enter lovely stained glass windows worth visiting for 10 minutes, nice paintings on the interier on wood.

I came across this church while in the old city. It is one of the historical buildings Gamla stan is famous for. The church was not accessible for visiting the timexI was there. So I was happy to walk around it and take a few snaps.

The Tyska Kyrkan is an Old German Lutheran Church located not far from the Square. There is no paid admission to visit this impressive church and it is worth visiting to see the stunning architecture and the relics. This German church dates back to the 1600’s and certainly is a hidden treasure of Stockholm well worth the visit. The stained... More

The Tyska Kyrkan is a wonderful church in Gamla Stan, not too far from Stortorget Square. Unlike the main cathedral on the other side of the square, this one has free admission. The interior is quite impressive, and although it's not quite as opulent as the cathedral, it is definitely quite stunning and contains beautiful architecture and relics. It also... More

An oasis of calm in Gamla Stan. Very interesting old German Lutheran Church. Traditional Lutheran design, lovely stained glass. Still an active church. Very moving experience.

It was sad that at the time we visited the Old German Church no one could be seen. One came in for the time we stayed. It is so quite an so nice.

It is just a small cute church, with nothing special to see inside. It is very simple inside, influenced by German style.

Worth wandering through while exploring the old town neighborhood. Free admission and a cute church yard just outside.

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighborhood Profile
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.
