Overview
More
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.

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 place is out of this world. Peacefull, wonderful, and so perfect. It is on the UNESCO world heritage list, a museum of its own. We took the train from the center, it is super easy to find. We enjoyed our walk, just looking around...More

When you are fed up with the crowds and tourist tat of central Stockholm, get the bus out to this beautiful cemetery and wander the pine and birch lined pathways for an hour or two. If you're lucky, you'll also be able to get into...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

The most beautiful cemetery I've ever seen. It's a sight to visit if you want to see something more unique than the normal tourist attraction. I came here for a walk alone so it was a bit creepy walking along tombstones, but it definitely is...More
