Three world heritage sites

The Stockholm region is home to three of Sweden’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites – spots judged as invaluable places that belong to all of humanity. Visiting Birka, Drottningholm or the Woodland Cemetery is like traveling back in time to three different defining periods in Sweden’s history. All three of Stockholm’s World Heritage Sites are excellent choices for an excursion out of the ordinary.

Birka is an old Viking outpost and archeological site where you can meet the legendary Nordic sea farers. The dig site and museum is just a boat ride away, 2 hours along the sparkling waters of Lake Mälaren.

Drottningholm Palace is easily one of Stockholm’s most popular tourist attractions all year round. The palace has been home to the Royal family since 1662 and houses, amongst many things, a 300 year-old theater, The Chinese Pavilion and a magnificent castle park.

Amongst the World Heritage Sites in Stockholm, The Woodland Cemetery stands out as still being in use on a day-to-day basis by Stockholmers. The serene surroundings and beautiful architecture by Gunnar Asplund offer a unique location for a quiet walk.
