The Ansgar Chapel was built around 1930, one hundred years after the Monument of Ansgar was raised. The chapel is built 1100 years after Ansgars arrival to Sweden. Ansgar was a monk that came to Sweden to Christianize the country. Today the Ansgar Chapel is a summer church, which is open for individual visits, group visits, weddings and christenings.
The chapel was designed by architect Lars Israel Wahlman and decorated by great artists and architects that made paintings and sculptures that tell of Ansgar’s life and commandments.
The Ansgar Chapel is managed by a foundation and Ekerö parish is responsible for the care.
