Skogskyrkogården, The Woodland Cemetery, is considered one of the most important creations of modern architecture, and is inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

When Skogskyrkogården was founded at the beginning of the 1900s, the aim was to create something special, something original — a cemetery blending nature and architecture into a seamless whole.


The Woodland Cemetery is open for visits every day of the year, no entrance fee. Visitors Center is open summertime. Read more at
