Skogskyrkogarden - Review

This is Sweden’s most famous cemetery, not only for the many dignitaries interred here (Greta Garbo and Arthur Adson), but also for the sheer harmony of architectural and natural beauty that architects Gunnar Asplund and Sigurd Lewerentz were able to achieve. Completed in 1920, it was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994. From the colonnaded entrance the path goes through wooded gravesites shaded by pine trees, sculptures by Carl Milles, rolling meadows, the Almhojden meditation grove, the exquisite Seven Springs Way, the 3.6 km limestone wall, a large granite cross, a small Crematorium, five chapels (Woodland Chapel, Chapel of Resurrection are the main ones) that are almost in continuous use in the day.

Skogskyrkogarden, Stockholm Reviews

Google+
  • Very beautiful, serene and peaceful; less of a cemetery and more of a picturesque immense forestry garden to escape from busy and crowded Stockholm center. Easily accessible by public metro

  • Beautiful cemetery and landscape. The pine and fir trees are very majestic. If you're looking for serenity, this is a great spot.

  • Closes at 16 in summer. Are you serious? Just a graveyard!

  • We visited on a perfectly sunny day, very peaceful and beautiful walk. As far as graveyards go it is a more modern and active site, so it doesn't have the oldest and grandest selection of stones or mausoleums for goths to lurk around. Walking through all the trees however is something very special and you can see why someone would wish to be laid to rest here. We spent some time within the Jewish cemetery, and what was striking was the sense of community from the brief encounters we had.

  • I wouldn't say this was particularly special for me. If you are in Stockholm for many days, go on a day when you are tired of traveling around and just want a peaceful relaxing attraction. The mushrooms there however, were really attractive to me.
