This wasn’t open to visitors in early February but the building exterior is still worth walking over to. It’s on a pretty square and near to the water. The iron spire is very unusual. Just a shame it was closed.

It's on the edge of the old city in a nice quiet area, hard to say about Gamla Stan, and it is worth popping over. It has a lot of history to it and the events that have surrounded the church are worth exploring. It...More

Pretty disappointing- hours are either inaccurate or they don’t honor them. Despite going during correct hours, were unable to enter. It’s a beautiful church with a lot of history, so take your chances!

My tip: Go in the winter, close to closing time. It is dark and a little eerie. It's really a cool experience to sit in the presence of the tombs of all of those royals. There aren't any water slides or laser shows, but it's...More

We visited Riddarholmen Church first thing on a very rainy morning, so that may have colored my impression. But I was really looking forward to visiting this church after walking past it several times and admiring the outside. But the inside is not so much...More

Amazingly beautiful and historic church. Oldest preserved building in Stockholm. Built in 1290, one of the only surviving medieval monastery churches. Well worth the few $$ admission. In my opinion, second only to Roskilde Cathedral in Denmark. Full of tombs, suites of armor, coat of...More

More than a typical church tour this place is history laid out before you with the tombs of the last monarchies. Convenient to the old town. A must do stop.

A very interesting place, it is the only preserved medieval monastery church in Stockholm. Almost all kings of Sweden (except of Queen Christina) are burried here since 1632. It is opened to public in summer and autumn and there are concerts during the whole year.

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)

I think they may only be open during the summer season. Best to check their website for hours for accuracy.
