The first day we attempted to look inside, it was 4pm, and closed. The next day we did get a look inside, and it is very beautiful to see and free.

It was stunning. It is easy to find, free entrance and a place to stop and admire the inside. I was more amazed of the windows, which were painted in a very vivid way.

A very beautiful church in the middle of the oldtown of Stockholm. The church is not like the other churches of Stockholm because as the name say this is a German church with roots back to the medieval ages. The masses are still being held in German, so if you posses German I can really recommend the church for you.... More

This church has very strange hours; out of my 3 days in Stockholm, I went 2 times before I finally caught it when it was open. It appears nearly everything in Stockholm is closed on Mondays and other days nothing opens before 11am. However, if you do happen to be in the area when it is open, I would definitely... More

I love going to churches, especially services, when I travel in Europe. This church was very very close to my hotel and when I entered, I lucked out because a service was in progress. I joined the service and couldn't figure out which language it was in until I googled some words afterwards (Finnish!) They sang a hymn I know... More

It's a nice church to visit if you're in the neighborhood, but not worth a detour unless you're already there.

Not what you would expect for a Lutheran church, probably because its design was heavily influenced by the German merchants who built it. I think they got their inspiration from that old pub back home in Bavaria: dark wood and beautiful colorful windows.

This old German Church is a wonderful place to visit. In a relaxing setting and free to visit, it has a beautiful interior with excelent stained galss windows and historic organs. In the middle of Gamla Stan, a visit is very recommended

The old German Church is known for its music and particularly its organs. Listening to the music in this relatively small (inside) church is quite relaxing and is to be recommended.

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighbourhood Profile
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) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
