Beautifull Palace with several different entrances, each one leading in different parts of the Palace : Royal apartments, The Armoury, The Treasury and The Tre Kronor museum. Magnificent architecture and decor of the palace. I was most impressed by the Armoury...You ll'have opportunity to see amazing things like armors, coaches, clothes, Gustav Vasa's crowned helmet from 16 th century etc.... More

We enjoyed seeing the palace as we walked through the area and were exploring the city. We found it by accident and would not necessarily recommend it as a must see unless you're a history buff or are interested in European royalty.

An interesting enough diversion for an hour or so. State apartments were interesting. Wedding dress exhibition also good if your into such things.

There is so much to see and do when in Stockholm but one place I definitely recommend is the royal palace. The apartments are full of amazing things to see which take us back in time. There is so much history and culture. It is worth a visit.

Wow! I'm so pleased we had an extra day to return to The Palace. We had such a great experience at The Royal Castle, we learnt so much about the history of Sweden and its Rulers and the Royal Family, The Castle and it's fascinating history. There is so much to see, the tickets are actually valid for two days,... More

If you're doing the tourist thing and if you're an American, like I am and you've never been anyplace where they have royalty, like I was, the Royal Palace is a must. First off understand that Europe does History way different than America does. Meaning they actually have a lot of it. Now visit the Treasury at the Royal Palace... More

I preferred to see the palace from outside because it was a little bit overpriced to visit here. Easy to reach the general center in old town in order to feel the atmosphere.

Compared to many other builidings in the area, this palace is bland and dull. The exterior is looks old and weary, and though it is in the process of renovation, it seems to be going very slowly. The interior has some interesting rooms, but just like the outside, most of it lacks design and style. I expected much more from... More

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighbourhood Profile
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) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
