Experience a World Heritage
Skogskyrkogården is beautiful all year round, much due to the unique way it is woven into the landscape. In the summer you can enjoy a cop of coffee at the Visitors Center and the staff is happy to show around and guide you through the exhibitions.
The Visitors Center is open daily May 27 - August 26 11 am - 4 pm. Open Sundays in September 11 am - 4 pm. Phone: +46 (0) 8 508 31 730.

Take the green metro line towards Farsta Strand, get off at the Skogskyrkogården station. Travel time is 14 minutes from T-Centralen. Exit and turn right and you'll reach the main entrance 100 meters down the road (Sockenvägen).
On weekends there is a public bus service (no 183) on the site, leaving every 30 minutes from outside the metro station with several stops inside the cemetery. But of course you'll enjoy the site best on foot.
The cemetery never closes, so you can easily acces the World Heritage when you prefer, throughout the year. Prepare the visit by downloading the visitors guide – in seven languages. Please note that the chapels are only open to funerals and guided tours.
