Re-opening soon, you can visit an outdoor exhibition about Skogskyrkogården. You can also see a film about this world heritage site which in 2020 celebrated 100 years.

Please choose subtitles in English.


There is an outdoor exhibition located at the main entrance towards Sockenvägen. The exhibition will guide you through the one hundred years that has passed since the cemetery was inaugurated: from the first decisions, the thoughts of the architects and the long development of landscapes and buildings, to the planning of new burial grounds and upcoming renovations.

The cemetery is also described as centre for public projects and remembers all the hundreds, even thousands, of cemetery workers and others who have laboured here.
