Riddarholmen is a small island in Stockholm and is part of the old city. This lovely little island houses many old palaces from the 1600s, which are prominent on the Stockholm skyline. These historic homes reveal the wealthy population that inhabited this area. The Riddarfjarden Church is the oldest building on the island, and dates back to the medieval period. A long line of royal figures chose this church as a burial place. Beautiful views of Riddarfjarden Bay can also be seen from the western side of the island, making a visit here a real treat for any traveller.
- Tour Riddarholmen to see the 17th-century palaces including the Wrangel Palace with a fortification tower, the Birger Jarls, the Stenbock, the Hessenstein, and the Palace of Schering Rosenhane.
- Visit the 13th-century Riddarholmen Church during summer months to see Stockholm’s royal cemetery, where many of Sweden’s kings and queens are buried.
- Traverse the tops of the island’s buildings on a rooftop tour and see the amazing views of Stockholm from these unique vantage points.
To get to the Riddarholmen area of Sweden from outside the country, fly into the Arlanda Airport, which is 36 kilometres away and is the closest international airport. To get to Stockholm from within Sweden, the Bromma Airport is only 7 kilometres away from the island. Visitors can access Riddarholmen by taking the underground to Gamla Stan or the Old Town station, and then walking to the island. Local buses also run to the area and travellers can get off at the Riddarhustorget stop. Once on the island, many visitors travel by foot.
