The Riddarholmen Church

The Riddarholm Church is the final resting place of the Swedish kings and Stockholm's only preserved medieval monastery church.

With the one exception of Queen Christina, all succeeding rulers of Sweden from Gustav II Adolf (d. 1632) to Gustaf V (d. 1950) are buried in the Riddarholmen Church.

Kings from the middle ages are also buried here such as Magnus Ladulås and Karl Knutson Bonde (d. 1470).

The church is foremost a burial and memorial church, which is maintained by the Office of the Marshal of the Realm and the National Property Board (SFV).

The Riddarholm Church is open to the public during the summer months. It can also be viewed year round at concerts, Order of the Seraphim bell ringings or by special arrangement.
