The Royal Palace is definitely somewhere you should see if you are in Stockholm. It’s easy to find and the inside is full of history. Takes maybe an hour to see everything and the ticket is fairly priced. At 1215 during the week you can...More

We really enjoyed visiting the Silver Throne, Royal Apartments, looking at the jewels and visiting the museum. The Changing of the Guard ceremony was great to watch and done in a relatively small area (unlike London).

The Swedish Royal Palace is quite nice but not on the scale of Versailles or Buckinggham Palace or the Schonbrunn but nevertheless a visit to stockholm wouldn't be complete without a visit to the Palace

All the family enjoyed visiting this Palace on a cold but bright winter's day. We took photos with the guards, visited inside and then went back out again to the "dungeon" downstairs where the crown jewels are kept.. There were good signs to direct you...More

Am unsure about what’s there to see in the place.. just walked around the palace and clicked a few pictures.. the guards were fun to watch though.. they barely moved and stood their post..

There is very little to read about the room and the furniture, which was disappointing. There was sections closed because of the work being done on the walls. The circuit is not a loop, you end up back tracking all the time. Photos are allowed...More

This palace is gigantic, very royal indeed. It is very well documented, all in Swedish and English. I went there with my son when they had a treasure hunt where kids had to find gnomes hidden here and there and that was the best idea...More

The entrance price is like 16 euros/kr160,- but this was money well spent. The apartments are the best thing to see. The treasury is nice to visit as well.

Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home
to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central
island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small
island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous
Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)

Yes, there is a charge. I went as part of a group - and so the price I paid would not necessarily be the same as the going rate. I think you should budget to spend at least USD30 per person for entry to both these places.
