Very nice castel and also the home for the Swedish Royal family.But You could walk around in the nice park and try one the nice restaurants or even enjoy Your own picknick lunch.You could take small ship from Stockholm City to Drottningsholm Palace.Try that for best experience.

It is easy to get there by public transport. Take the green tunnelbana line and hop off at Brommaplan. At Brommaplan take a bus number 176, 177, 323 etc. Then you see a sign saying "Drottningholm" before the bus stop.

It is a wonderful trip by boat out to Drottningholm from Central Stockholm. If you are interested in opera, then you must try to see a performance at the theatre there during the summer.

Nice trip, especially in summer. I highly recommend to go there by boat and to take the guided tour of the main palace. I absolutely suggest skipping the Chinese pavilion, which was a major disappointment.

Visiting Drottningholm is not only best during cold and foggy days, but all-time. It provides a good insight on how royals lived and thanks to the many portrait paintings one could get the feeling of being part in ceremonies happening just now.

A must in summer. The garden is really big and so nice to take a walk in. You can go here by boat from "stadshuset" and on the way see Stockholm from the from a nother perspective

I have been to Stockholm several times but somehow always stayed in the old town. Drottningholm is accessible via subway + bus, so it takes some time to get there. We had quite windy and cold day in the middle of July despite that we enjoyed the park the most. Palace itself is rather modest and not all rooms are... More
