Its not the Versailles in Paris... Its not the Schonbrun in Vienna... Its not the Royal Palace in Madrid... But Drottningholms Palace is still big, beautiful, and worth half your day. An added bonus of being unpopular: less tourist crowds! We didn't see a lot...More

It's an easy trip out to the palace. Take the metro green line to Brommaplan and switch to a bus to the palace gates. You can walk around the grounds for free or pay to look inside. It's a bit extra for a guided tour...More

We got the ferry from the city which took an hour and was very scenic. The walk around the grounds was really beautiful, especially with all the autumn trees. We did a self guided tour of the palace, which wasn't worth the admission fee to...More

Plan on spending more time outside vs in. The interior is of course impressive (its a palace, what's not to be impressed over). But compared to other palaces in Europe, the grounds here are like no other! Seriously could spend a day just walking them....More

Drottningholm was my favorite site to visit in Stockholm. We took the ferry from City Hall and it was a very pleasant ride. The palace is beautiful and they have a large garden area to explore as well.

Yes you will need to buy boat tickets, the boat ride is 50-60 minutes depending on stops. We had the Stockholm Pass which included free boat fare and all entrance fees at the castle activities.
