Took the guided tour. Worth it as they gave a lot of information and history as seeing the state rooms. As the Royal family still use the palace there are lots of photos of recent state visits. Different tour guide but he knew his stuff....More

Excellent trip and spent 3 hours here. Very well organised and marvellous displays of the rooms. The Crown Jewels is a must with a guide. Takes you to another age and smother world!

Don't get me wrong: visiting this (with a tour) was certainly worth it. However, it wasn't quite the prettiest palace I've seen in Europe. One thing that's fun though is that it's actively being used. This also means you should check (e.g. online) beforehand how...More

We decided to make this nice leisurely tour of the apartments (we had no interest in the treasury and went quickly through the kronor part) as our final use of the Stockholm Pass. That turned out to be a good choice because we could go...More

This is well worth a visit. The inside of the palace is breathtaking, more so because it is still used by the royal family for visits/events. There are good information posters in every room, so it’s fine to go by yourself if you don’t want...More

With only about 16euros you can see a lot; the treasury, the castle apartments and the The Kronor museum. We visited the treasury first and it was kind of a disappointing. I was looking for something more and in fact it was a really small...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)

Yes, there is a charge. I went as part of a group - and so the price I paid would not necessarily be the same as the going rate. I think you should budget to spend at least USD30 per person for entry to both these places.
