This is the most distinctive building in the old town, the green spires are very prominent. The interior of the church is not luxurious, more simple but not less solemn. It was just in time for mass and felt very religious, the music of the church made people calm and quiet.
On the way to the square from the old town, it is said to have been donated by the German Chamber of Commerce. The church is magnificent and the top of the tower is very high. People can see it halfway through. But because the road in the old town is narrow, it is difficult to photograph all of it.
The German Church (in Sweden it's called Tyska kyrkan) is a church in Stockholm's old town, Gamla Stan. It was build for the many German tradesman living in Stockholm in the 16th century. I didn't went in, but it's also beautiful from the outside!
An amiable little church in the heart of Gamla Stan, Stockholm's old town. Also called St. Gertrudes, it was the first German ecclesiastical parish outside of Germany when it was established in the 1550's to accomodate the numerous German tradesmen of the time. We're not fervently religious people, but there's something awe-inspiring about old chuches. It can't hurt to step in and light a candle for family or a friend... Or for the world :-)
Beautiful church at the heart of Gamla Stan.
The German church in Stockholm’s Old Town has a Baroque style. Because it was donated and built by Germans in the early days, it is called the German Church. At the end of the street in the main square, it is the last stop to visit the old town.
