When we visited Drottingholm was a hot and sunny day. We could therefore fully enjoy the beautiful gardens, full of meadows and ponds. The interiors of the palace are richly furnished. It was the first place we visited in Sweden and it was a great start.

Beautiful grounds and buildings. Old castle with little to get excited about. Bring a picnic and wander the grounds anytime. Lovely water setting.

We were here on a cold winters day and it was a great visit but I think it would be absolute stunning in the summer when the garden is blooming!! The kids liked it as well, they could look for animals in the castle decor and got chocolate afterwards. Beautiful!

The grounds are nice but the palace is not spectacular. We had a better tour of the baroque theater in Czech Republic (Cesky Krumlov). The theater tour here did not show the workings of the machinery and was short and abrupt

This is one of my favourite places in Stockholm - usually I come here to go for a walk in the palace garden. I find it quite amazing how open it is! It's beautiful in all seasons but try not to wear "city shoes" as the paths are not made out of concrete. The museum is very interesting too with... More

I was lucky enough to go there on a very sunny and warm day by boat and it was well worth the trip. The castle itself is not very large but beautifully decorated with paintings that tell the tales of wars and hardships this people suffered throughout the course of history. Definitely don't miss!

Beautiful place to visit in summer. Palace of exceptional beauty where you could see lot of history, tradition but also a mix of tradition and modern culture - regular summer residence of the Swedish royal family. For example, you can see traditionally trained and armed the Royal Guard, as well as modern one. The lake tour and walk through beautiful... More

Great experience going there using train and bus. May need around 3-4 hours to complete the tour. The restaurant outside is really good but pricey. Overall a must visit tourist spot.

Fantastic Xmas flower exhibition 11 dec. Great place to visit in winter and summer. The flower exhibition was temporary 2-11 dec. There is a lot to see in addition to temporary exhibitions. Nice break from the city center.

We used the cruise option through Stockholm creeks to reach the Palace..We could not enter the palace because there was a private function (princes baptism) was going on.. but it was a nice half day tour walking through the palace gardens and enjoying a beer at the lake side...
