Stroll in the castle

Parts of the Castle were under rennovation but the tour was a nice way to spend time in Stockholm. Exhibition of Royal weddings was a nice touch.

This time i visited the wedding gown exhibition. WOW! If you don't go on a guided tour, you must ask the "guards" in the rooms. They can tell you amazing stories. 10 point for the staff.

The Royal Palace is a must see attraction from point of view that its the palace of the Royal Family in Sweden. The palace is well maintained. In my opinion the entrance fee is bit on the higher side. The treasury had very few exhibits. The royal apartments were worth the visit. The change of guards in front of the... More

With four areas to see, plus the changing of the guard outside the palace each day, it is good that the tickets you buy, SEK160 each, last for seven days....well done Stockholm! On your left as you enter, stairs down to the old palace, and the history of the great fire that raised much to the ground in the late... More

The Royal Swedish Palace houses some six hundred rooms/chambers. It's not only great and well designed, but well exhibited. It's also efficiently used, since it's the current home of the Royal Swedish Family and, at the same time, can be visited by the crowd. The three sites are the Royal Apartments, the Treasury and the Museum, this last exhibits the... More

I really enjoyed the guided tour of the Palace. There are very beautiful rooms and the tour is not too long.

We weren't expecting much from the palace due to some of the recent reviews, but we were pleasantly surprised by what we found. We bought the combination ticket, but would recommend people only by tickets to the palace itself as the treasury and other extras were a little lack lustre and small for the price we paid. The palace on... More

I visited early and had the main palace almost to myself. Some very interesting and beautiful rooms. The fee also covers some other minor museums, all worth visiting.

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighbourhood Profile
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) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
