German Church Stockholm, Tyska Kyrkan

Pop by 'n say hi!German Church Stockholm, Tyska Kyrkan The German Church Stockholm (or Tyska Kyrkan in Swedish) of St Gertrude’s has stood in Stockholm’s Gamla Stan (Old Town) since the 1580s. Several architects were involved in the design of the German Church Stockholm including Wilhelm Boy who was King Eric III’s architect. The northern gate of the church is engraved with the church motto “Fear God! Honour the King!”. The interior of the church is Baroque in style with large windows. Why is there a German Church at the heart of Sweden’s Capital? Germans dominated the area of Gamla Stan where the church stands in the Middle Ages. In the 14th century a guild was founded on the site by German merchants. The many Germans merchants and craftsmen living in Stockholm in the Middle Ages did not have a separate site for their religious sermons though until King John III authorised the formation of a separate parish in 1571. Priests were summoned from Germany to form the first German ecclesiastical parish outside of Germany. The church was initially at another site, the current site was home to a Finnish chapel at the time. However within a few years the […]

Swedish phone line: call a Swede

Pop by 'n say hi!Swedish phone line: call a Swede Swedish phone line: to mark the 250th anniversary of the abolition of censorship in Sweden, Swedish Tourism has created a Swedish phone line which will connect you to a random Swede. This makes Sweden the first country in the world to have its own telephone number. Svenska Turistföreningen (The Swedish Tourist Association) invites you to “Get connected to a random Swede and talk about anything“. Ever wanted to know how to make the perfect Swedish meatballs, how to pronounce ‘Ikea’ like a Swede or more about Malmö, where the Nordic Noir thriller The Bridge is set? Now it will only cost you a phone call to Sweden, to find out. What is the Swedish phone line? The number is +46 771 793 336. The line is staffed by volunteers, some just wanted to practice their English – though, despite what they often tell you, I am yet to meet a Swede who speaks English badly! Swedish phone line etiquette Apparently, some Swedes might get irritated if you ask them about Ikea furniture and ABBA, so be considerate when coming up with your question! Another potential pitfall is confusing Sweden with […]

Stockholm Walks: Riksgatan, Gamla Stan

Pop by 'n say hi!Stockholm Walks Stockholm is modern, tranquil city, steeped in history. From the ABBA experience, to the Vasa Museum housing the 300 year old Swedish warship, there is literally something for everyone. The city is quite easy to navigate on foot, with many pedestrianised areas. You can walk the two kilometer route from the top of Drottninggatan (Queen Street), the modern, broad, shopping avenue, right down into Gamla Stan (The Old Town). You cross the Riksbron (Parliament Bridge) on to tiny island Helgeandsholmen, housing the Riksdagshuset (Parliament House), follow Riksgatan (pictured in this post) and then hop onto the medieval Gamla Stan (Old Town) island. There a narrow alley, Västerlånggatan, replete with souvenir shops to suit the taste of any tourist brings you to the other side of Gamla Stan. This, all without having to take a single turn – the only thing to get lost in is the irresistible charm of Sweden’s capital city! Stockholm Walks Ghost Walks in the Old Town This first of the Stockholm walks, runs from May to August and ‘walks you through’ some fascinating history, life stories and legends of Gamla Stan Photo Stockholm Walks organised by City Photo Tour take […]
