Create an itinerary including Riddarholmen Church
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.

  • Historical value, very impressive, the ticket lady knew greek and she was very polite! Definitely worth a visit
  • Church very similar to other churches in Europe. In my opinion it was nothing special. It is a short walk away from gamla Stan and student tickets are cheaper and it was nice that they did not look for student id. Apparently the reciept of the ticket here gets you a discount at the other museum at the royal palace.
