Not what you would expect for a Lutheran church, probably because its design was heavily influenced by the German merchants who built it. I think they got their inspiration from that old pub back home in Bavaria: dark wood and beautiful colorful windows.

This old German Church is a wonderful place to visit. In a relaxing setting and free to visit, it has a beautiful interior with excelent stained galss windows and historic organs. In the middle of Gamla Stan, a visit is very recommended

Beautiful church and worth a visit. There is a beautiful gold organ and stunning stained glass. They don't charge for entry however I think they should consider a nominal charge to help with the upkeep.

We enjoyed this church mostly because of the amazing artwork everywhere. We also went to an organ concert one evening which was outstanding. Highly recommended.

Some centuries ago that was just a town's border. Now the beautiful church in the heart of Stockholm.

It is said, that the German school Stockholm has one of the nicest Lucia-celebrations in Stockholm. Check it out. The church is very nice as well.

Entry is free, so if you are passing it is worth a look. The stained glass windows are mildly interesting but the Cathedral has a lot more to see.

First afternoon as we strolled along Västerlånggatan we kept a watchful eye for the spire of this church. It soon appeared in view and a fine vista it presents on its narrow street. The interior is remarkably beautiful. The first impression was the sheer amount of wonderfully ornate dark wood. This is particularly so in the grand balconies that have... More

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.
