Getting here

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.
