Riddarholmen Church, Stockholm

4.1
Home to the burial ground of the Swedish monarchs, Riddarholmen Church represents one of the oldest buildings in the capital city and is used to this day for commemorative burials (although the congregation dissolved in 1807). The church was originally built in the 13th century as a monastery, but was closed and transformed into a Protestant church following the Protestant Reformation. Of particular interest are the coats of arms of passed knights of The Order of Seraphim that hang from the church walls.

  • Very beautiful building, gorgeous spire, visible from everywhere. The entrance is paid, you can get to the concert. One of the oldest buildings in Stockholm, parts of which date back to the late 13th century. The only medieval monastery church in Stockholm. The tomb of the Swedish monarchs. The tradition of burying monarchs on Riddarholmen continued until 1950. Open only in the warm season.

  • On my wife's places to visit was Riddarholm Church which was not impressive on the outside. Nor the inside either until you start to see the burial vaults and crypts of Swedish Kings and Queens dating...  more »

  • A very beautiful church with many helpful explanations. Also available are texts in various different languages explaining the church. All the coats of arms are displayed very beautifully. You can really feel the historic vibes around here.
  • This church contains the graves of some members of the royal families and some notable aristocratic families. Plus, a collection of plates with the Order of Seraphim awarded to some notable personalities over time. You can visit it by buying a separate ticket (50 krona) or a combined ticket with the Royal Palace (200 krona). Emblematic is the the tower’s roof, lace-like structure.
