  • The Palace is a cool place to visit. You can get there either by bus or by boat. This is also the residence of the royal family. I highly suggest you add it to your list.  more »

  • Incredibly beautiful french inspired building outside the city. The park is so nice for a long relaxing walk. There is also a Chinese pagoda: nothing special but good to walk around. The place is like 20 minutes from the center by public transport, highly recommended a visit to escape the city kind of atmosphere.
  • The Royal Palace west of the Stockholm downtown. This is the palace, the Royal Family of Sweden lives. Lots of rooms and hallways can be visited. The palace's park is accessible for the public as well, even at no entrance fee. The palace can easily be reached by boat or by public transport (subway and bus). Perfect place to spend some time apart from the busy city.
  • The Palace itself was very interesting and had a lot of historical significance. The location is beautiful!. The trip would have been worth it just to see the grounds without going into the palace.
  • This Palace is absolutely beautiful!! 😍 Very Instagram worthy! Swedish palaces are so underrated! The gardens are so beautiful. Can’t wait for my next visit to Stockholm! 😍
  • Lovely place tog visit for the castle, gardens & parks. Bring a blanket and enjoy! If you play Pokémon the area offers a lot more interesting spawns than town. Many gyms and stops!
