One of the oldest buildings in Stockholm, this grand old church has been the burial site of numerous members of Sweden's royal families and the odd nobleman. The walls are decorated with royal coats of arms and the floor is liberally covered with worn gravestones....More

Beautiful church with a lot of history. Friendly staff and the tour guide (tour included in the entrance fee) was absolutely brilliant, using modern technology (an ipad) to explain things in a way that is more interactive and different to anything I've seen before. Brilliant!

The Riddarholmen Church was well maintained and stunning. Our kids (7, 5, and 3) loved the family crests that were on display. It was worth the nominal entry fee. (6 and under are free)

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)
