The exterior is quite dull and there’s no ‘real gardens’ compared to most other Palaces I have visited. The interior is an improvement. Many of the rooms are well furnished. There’s the Kroner museum which is quite dullish whilst the Royal Chapel is well decorated....More

Tour worth taking of full palace to understand Swedish history. But the chapel was amazing and if you can go when there is music it will be unforgettable

We visited the palace, paid our entrance fee, walked through the first rooms, and then discovered that a whole wing was closed. We went on and were subseqiently informed that due to special exhibition some other rooms were not open for visitors. Why do they...More

This is the biggest Palace which I ever seen but not the most interesting. Long corridors and countless rooms. For me the most interesting was royal treasury and awards hall. And of course the most impressive is the change of honor guard that takes place...More

We were able to visit one room in the Royal Palace. Otherwise the changing of the guards was wonderful to observe as they marched toward the palace and came around the backside of the building. Sweden can be proud. Good shoes essential because of the...More

The free portions were the most interesting. We spent a lot of time in the armory, which provided great information on the royalty and history of the country, and briefly visited the chapel. We bought a ticket for the palace but we're not impressed.

This was amazing. I highly recommend that you purchase a tour so you can get a little history on the castle and the people who lived there. The painted murals on the ceilings, gilt everywhere you look, the carving on furniture, and the paintings are...More

A combination ticket will give you access to the Treasury (Crown Jewels) and the Three Crowns Museum (dark basement with little to recommend it) as well as the Royal apartments. The latter is interesting, with dozens of beautifully furnished and decorated rooms. Though you do...More

The castle is quite plain on the outside but the inside is beautiful. Be sore to look up at the art work on the ceiling. Also they let you see the crowns. The only disappointing part is the changing of the guard kind of pales...More

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)

You sometimes have to wait to get a ticket, but other than that you just walk thru at your own pace.
