The Unesco World Heritage Skogskyrkogården is beautiful all year round, much due to the unique way it is woven into the landscape. The cemetery never closes, so you can easily acces the World Heritage when you prefer, throughout the year. More than 2,000 funeral ceremonies take place at the Skogskyrkogården each year. This means that the five chapels are in frequent use and therefore closed to the public. If you are interested in the chapels and their interiors, come along for a public guided tour or book a private tour. We also have audio and visitor's guides, which you can download prior to your visit. Please visit our website for more information.

Quiet place where you can understand svedish people. looks like a forest. In this place there are not sadness and anguish.

This is a place you can go to and meditate or walk around the beautiful buildings. My dad, mom, sister, and brother are all burred here. I will try to get here at least once a year to visit the graves.

Though it's a cemetery, it is like an enormously big and beautiful jungle. Designed by Gunnar Asplund, this cemetery is an UNESCO world heritage site. There is a chapel inside. Greta Garbo's grave is here. Those who are travelling with public transport, buses run only...More

This is an exceptional place to visit and I'm not surprised it's a World Heritage Site. It may seem unusual to visit a graveyard but I would urge visitors to rise above that and explore this wonderful location. It's hard to describe the atmosphere -...More
