This stunning UNESCO World Heritage site is open all year around, throughout all seasons and is beautiful example of architecture, nature and light being woven together. Skogskyrkogården translates to forest church-yard. It might not be the first thing that comes to mind on a family day trip but it’s a stunning and moving environment, Particularly at this time of year and throughout Allahelgonahelg.
The cemetary took several decades to build, but it was the vision of Gunnar Asplund and Sigurd Lewerentz that inspired the final design. Unfortunately, three months after the crematorium and three chapels were built, Asplund passed away. He is buried in the cemetary. In 1994, Skogskyrkogården became a UNESCO World Heritage site meaning that the site and it’s buildings will be preserved for generations to come.
You can get there by bus, car, tunnelbana.
