Located on the islet of the same name, just off Gamla Stan, this elegant and soaring church is the burial location of Swedish royalty. Some parts of the original 13th century structure still remain. It is also the city’s only remaining preserved medieval monastery. The main highlight is the marble sarcophagus of Gustav II Adolf. It does not function as a church any longer, though. Sometimes concerts are held here. The exterior exhibits grandeur and looks awe inspiring. Some of the most popular graves are those of Gustav II Adolf, Karl XII, Gustav V and their consorts.

  • Less glamourous than Gamla Stan's big churches but a beautifulcold church. Admittedly nicer on the outside though.

  • Wonderful church and history of the Swedish royalty, housing over 200 graves including kings and their family.

  • The island and church are definitely worth at least a little of your time while in Stockholm. Beautiful architecture and nice views.

  • Just church ..and it's famous in Stockholm and you can see a sea its near from church

  • Just a church you can see the tower from anywhere one you are in Gamla Stan. It is located in Ridderholmen island in the and is part of Gamla Stan
