On a sunny spring or summers day this is palace is a treat. With a sumptuous main building set on the banks of the canal/river, large gardens and good dining options on site (genuinely good food at reasonable prices) it is a place to spend a minimum of two hours and most people will probably spend longer if the weather...

The beautiful Drottningholm Palace (where the Royal Family actually resides) is one of the nicer royal palaces in Europe. Many rooms inside the palace are open to the public & they are both beautiful and informative. The grounds are green & expansive. This is outside of the city & if you drive you may experience heavy traffic.

A popular place for locals and tourists, due to its easy access by boat, car and coach. Lots of green space and picnic spots to enjoy before or after a tour of the palace.

The beautiful Drottningholm Palace (where the Royal Family actually resides) is a well-worth it getaway from the bustle of Stockholm. The palace is beautiful and the grounds green and expansive. Reminded us very much of Schonbrunn Palace in Vienna! I would highly recommend catching a boat by City Hall for a relaxing hour long ride with beautiful views from the... More

I t has beautiful views and a lovely palace, but I really enjoyed the gardens and the Chinese pavilion. The cafe was also quite lovely.

We took the ferry (departs from City Hall), which is an absolutely lovely way to see the lake. The palace tour was somewhat underwhelming and I wish we had had more time to spend at the Chinese Pavilion. The theatre tour was very informative. The grounds are expansive.

The castle, while outside away from the proper city center, is a jewel of Sweden! Visiting Drottingholm is a great way to get out of the bustle and bustle of the busy city. The palace itself and the surrounding grounds are well kept. I opted to visit all three sites on the palace grounds ( the palace, Chinese pavilion and... More

We took the boat from Stockholm central the trip was amazing as we had a sunny day, the palace itself was great - the staff very helpful. I would not pay the extra to go to the Chinese pavilion - it's a bit of a let down, not very beautiful and a bit old. We had lunch at the cafe... More

The best part of this trip was the cruise up the lake from Stockholm city centre. On a sunny day it was magnificent. The palace is interesting but not National Trust. The gardens are huge although a bit bare when we visited in May.
