The Woodland Cemetery

Visit Stockholm

A place of sublime beauty and poetry. Created over a period of a quarter-century (1915-1940) on about 250 acres of pine-covered boulder ridge under the direction of the famous modernist architects Gunnar Asplund and Sigurd Lewerentz.

Considered one of the most important works of the modernists, it evokes a Nordic philosophy on nature, life, and death. There are also a number of beautiful chapels and a visitor center. The Woodland Cemetery is a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1994.
