We very much enjoyed our trip and the castle is very interesting. Not really suitable for young children however, there is quite a lot to see and if you intend to visit all the various parts of the castle including the grounds and the buildings in the grounds, it is best to allow a day. Planning ahead is sensible. We... More

I took a boat to this Palace last month. It was fun to explore the Palace and Theater on site. In my opinion, this isn't one of the most interesting Palaces in Europe but still worth a visit. Nice scenery from the boat too.

We had a beautiful day to enjoy our boat ride to and from the castle.That was the best part of the day. The castle itself is rather spare in embellishment compared to some of its French or German counterparts but pleasant none the less.

Took about 40 mins ferry ride from Stockholm to Drottningholm, but along the way you can see nice river landscape. Once you reach Drottningholm, you have to buy the entrance pass first at the cafe, ensure you buy the combo ticket for both palace and Chinese Pavilion. Once inside, you will see the remarkable interior of this palace, i would... More

Nice architecture with baroque and rococo styles. I visited here during winter and didn't cover the gardens, but the palace is worth spending 1-2 hours if you like a bit of Swedish history and architecture. Don't forget to also visit the theatre!

Although not in the center of Stockholm, it is definitely worth going to! Beautiful grounds especially in the summer. Lovely gardens and architecture.

It's great for summer and fall, I suppose. The park is huge and variegated, no one can deny it's by royal design and totally grandiose in ambition. So yes, it is nice and well-worth going to. Great for taking a picnic with the family or a calm walk-around-the-park date with the boyfriend. Was there last summer and the only thing... More

Alongside friends, young children and parents in law, I've also taken parents and grandparents to the Drottningholm Palace. All though they have all been from different countries and continents, no one's ever left disappointed. - If you're interested in history there is architecture, paintings and interior design to be fascinated by. If you're all about the outdoors, there's a beautiful... More
