Being someone who loves palaces/castles, this was a treat. It is HUGE, along the lines of Buckingham Palace or Versailles in size. You can spend a long time here if you take your time to read about items in each room, which I did not....More

The admission ticket (160 SEK adults) actually includes entry to four separate museums. As we had a limited time we went for the Royal Apartments. Each room has a detailed description both in Swedish and in English, usually explaining how it was used in the...More

Gained admittance here and special exhibits with my Stockholm Pass. No air conditioning and lots of steps. The outside of the palace is not very attractive but the inside is worthwhile viewing. The jewels are in the basement in the hottest part of the palace!...More

Great place to visit. You don’t have to pay to see all the places in it. Some courts are free of charge.

The outside is reasonably impressive but not overly so. The previous palace on the site was more so. The royal rooms are nicely decorated with interesting history so good to visit. The blinds protect paintings and decorations but make everywhere very dark so spoil the...More

A real must when in Stockholm. You can see much of the palace without paying. Do try and get there when there is a changing of the guard

This is a great place to visit to see history in Stockholm. Nice exhibits and the palace is well maintained. The Crown Jewels were pretty cool to see alone with the state rooms.

As part of the exploration of the Old Town a visit to the Royal Palace is a must. There are 4 separate areas within the Palace so a good idea to get the combined ticket. The Palace opens at 10am on weekdays so if you...More

The palace is well maintained mainly because parts of it are still used. It has a lot of history and artifacts inside. The architecture is beautiful.

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)
