The Unesco World Heritage Skogskyrkogården is beautiful all year round,...

The Unesco World Heritage Skogskyrkogården is beautiful all year round, much due to the unique way it is woven into the landscape. The cemetery never closes, so you can easily acces the World Heritage when you prefer, throughout the year. More than 2,000 funeral ceremonies take place at the Skogskyrkogården each year. This means that the five chapels are in frequent use and therefore closed to the public. If you are interested in the chapels and their interiors, come along for a public guided tour or book a private tour. We also have audio and visitor's guides, which you can download prior to your visit. Please visit our website for more information.

A peaceful, beautiful place. A lot to see, touching and personal details everywere. This is a day trip. I spent there 3 hours walking and saw just a scratch. If you have access to wi-fi, you can follow a soundguided tour. It is interesting to listen afterwards also so sy least take the UR-code with you when you leave.

It's a very peaceful and special cemetery. Photography enthusiasts shouldn't miss the days around November 1st when the graveyard is filled with candles.

A Swedish friend recommended the graveyard and it is one of the most peaceful and touching places in Stockholm I know. It is definitely worth a trip to the south of Stockholm. Take your time and walk around!

This is not just an ordinary cemetery, it is also a place for thoughts and reconciliation. A place to be near all the ones you love that has past away, even if they are not physically around.

Beautiful patches of forest are scattered all over Stockholm, but one of the best kept and most peaceful is Skogskyrkogarden. If you look it up on Wikipedia, they show you the buildings, statues and a list of famous people buried there but the dense forest and highly maintained grounds are even more impressive than these structures. Get out of the... More

I visited the cemetary not knowing what to expect as I had only read about it in passing but I was blown away by this amazing place. The architecture and the feel of the cemetery made it not only a peaceful place but didn't make it feel sad and was still respectful. Take at least a couple hours to walk... More

This architecturally and spiritually very special place created by the architects Gunnar Asplund and Sigurd Lewerentz in the 20th century and is perhaps one of the town, man-made sites, the most beautiful along with City Hall! Here you will find beauty, peace, harmony, reflection, calm, aesthetics, world-class architecture, breath taking scenery and rarely seen natural light ... You can wander... More

This place isn't as publicized as it deserves. It's an UNESCO site. Yes, it's a graveyard, but it's beautiful. It isn't a graveyard with trees, but it's a pine forest with graves. Everything is simple and serene, not lugubrious. Graves are sober, with just a rock and a little plant. There are some chapels in which are celebrated funerals; simple... More

Skogskyrkogården is a beautiful place. I'd recommend you go right before the sunset. It's lights up beautifully at night.
