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 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

Elegantly incorporated into the landscape, Skogskyrkogarden is a wonderful location worth the quick detour from the city-scape. Bring your walking shoes and pick a day with good weather; it's easy to lose track of time while wandering through the park.
