The Riddarholmen Church

Group Visits

For larger groups, we recommend a pre-booked tour with your own guide. Guided tours can be given in Swedish, simple Swedish or English.

The Riddarholmen Church does not have electric lighting, and is not heated. We therefore recommend that group visits take place during spring, summer or autumn.

The Church´s floor of tombstones is very fragile. Canes with metal tips or shoes with spikes must not be used.
