Just a short walk of the touristy old town you can find this hidden treasure. It's free entrance and if you find yourself close by, you should pay it a visit. The beautiful stained glass windows is what's making this church special.

This is a gem of a church, and to really appreciate it it's important to know about it beforehand. Perhaps read it in the DK guide or Wikipedia.

We traipsed around until we found this nice old church, with its gaudy new organ, and interesting bit of German history in Stockholm. The copper spire is lovely, and the bells you hear around Gamla Stan originate here in their carillon.

Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home
to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central
island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small
island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous
Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)
