This is a must see on a tour of Stockholm. The interior of the church is very simple and solemn. It is the burial sight of Royal Families and loaded with history. See it!

Riddarholm Church (Riddarholmskyrkan) is a lovely old church situated at Birger Jarls Torg on the island of Riddarholmen. Very nice inside. Costs 50 SEK.

The Riddarholm church is on the small island of Riddarholmen in Stockholm harbour. The church is in a lovely square with several historical buildings and statues surrounding it. This all makes for a very picturesque scene.

This was a great church to visit - different from the typical european church as not only is it where the monarchs are buried, but it also contains the coats of arms of the knights of the Order if the Seraphim. These coats of arms...More

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!

This piece of history was built in the 1200s Franciscan monks confiscated by the crown during the reformation. The interior is well worth the minimal entrance fee. We had just missed the English tour but still enjoyed exploring on our own. Don’t forget to walk...More

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)

I think they may only be open during the summer season. Best to check their website for hours for accuracy.
