Not having these types of palaces and castles in the US, it was amazing to see the different rooms, architecture, and decor. The Palace was part of our Stockholm Pass so we took advantage of it and I am glad we did.

Lots of history and things to look and do but is very expensive for what it is. But was lovely afternoon trip

Good value for money as there are the royal apartments, museum and treasury included in the price. The state rooms are very grand. The staff were very helpful and friendly.

Pretty expensive to visit the palace. Entrance tickets brings you to the total apartments, underground rooms and the treasury. Honestly, the things in display here is a lot more underwhelming vis-a-vis the palaces you visit in Paris, Vienna, St Petersburg. If you have visited those...More

The most interesting part of the visit are the royal apartments. You can see where the royal parties take place and where the Nobel dinner is held. The Three Crown museum is informative but boring. The Treasury is just a small room.

Certainly worth a visit if you're touristing in town. Not that great blast of luxury and lavish refined architecture. It is a royal palace indeed, but not particularly old nor rich, when compared to other European dynasty residences. One regrets the opportunity of seeing the...More

There was a big banquet scheduled for the evening (sigh, we were not invited) so parts of the palace were closed to visitation. The royal apts were okay but nothing spectacular - Hapsburg palace in Vienna far better. Royal Treasury was interesting and the carriages...More

A highly recommended visit for travellers to Stockholm. Decorated in opulent style, the Royal Palace in Stockholm is one of my personal favourite royal palaces in Europe. The ticket includes entrance to the Royal Palace, the Tre Kroner Museum and the Royal Treasury. Student discounted...More

Palace of the ruler of the country that hasn't gone to war in centuries. Lots and lots to see, so much that it made my feet hurt. It's not versailles but very impressive. The changing of the guards happens at 12:15 (atleast) on saturday. There...More

By visiting this castle, wandering through all the rooms and the cellar a well we learned a lot about the history of the Royal family and Stockholm. Also watch the change of guards.

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)

Hi Mobile 888, Gamla Stan is definitely worth your time. Genuine, authentic houses & environment that you cannot see anywhere else. There are lots of nice restaurants there, as well, so you don’t need to look for them... More
