Royal Palace, Stockholm

(3,400+ reviews on the web)
Castle
After the city's medieval castle was destroyed by fire, Royal Palace was built in the same spot and has served as the king's residence since the 18th century. Located in the city's old town area, this castle has over 600 rooms and five museums. Following the destructive palace fire of 1697, the current structure was built by architect Nicodemus Tessin in 1754. Tour the palace grounds and buildings to see its 18th- and 19th-century interiors, museums, and royal costumes. Many visitors like to catch the changing of the guard ceremony, which has been a tradition since 1523.

  • From the outside, the castle is no looker, but inside, it truly is a castle. With the ticket, you can see 3 different "exhibitions". The rooms and the apartments of the castle on the top floor were especially fascinating. Here, you will feel the history correctly. Just the exhibition of Bridal dresses of princesses was also currently. This is admirable certainly especially for women. All in all we were very impressed by the Castle. I paid admission!

  • A beautiful place. Its worth a visit if you are in Stockholm. Open lots of interesting space for receptions, bedrooms, offices, which are still used by the Royal family, clothing, household items, etc. You can also see the exhibition the Royal treasure (crowns, swords, etc), but it is not very big, indeed, 2 small rooms. Moreover, during our visit was a temporary exhibition of wedding dresses women members of the Royal Swedish family (exactly like it girls). In General, a classic tourist destination.

  • Worth a look. 160 SEK for an adult gets you into a few different parts of the palace for a look around. Beautiful paintings, wall art and other valuables through out. Would recommend.  more »

  • Fantastic building and super friendly knowledgeable staff. Wandering through this lovely building hearing about it's history was well worth it. Took lots of photos (just remember to turn the flash to off) so will have lots to look back on. Leave plenty of time as it is huge!! So much to see. We took the guided treasury tour also, the royal jewels etc are beautiful. Don't miss out!!
  • Honestly it's not really a 'must see' place, especially if compared to other buildings of this type in Europe. The castle sure is an impressive, big building, but the overall impression is not breathtaking. Usually there is a lot of tourists around it and the locals try to avoid the area mainly because of this reason. The temporary exhibitions are probably the most interesting thing about the castle.
  • Stockholm Palace or The Royal Palace is the official residence and major royal palace of the Swedish monarch. Stockholm Palace is located on Stadsholmen, in Gamla stan in the capital, Stockholm. It neighbours the Riksdag building.
  • Wonderful place! We've seen royal wedding gowns and other interesting things inside. The guide says sometimes it's possible to see The King and His Wife
  • Det ser ju bra ut
