We visited just before closing time, so the crowds were gone. We were able to get nice close vows of the Crown Jewels. Unfortunately you are not allowed to take photos, but you can buy books and postcards in the gift shop. The jewels are spectacular.

Located in a basement below the palace, (with a separate entrance) there are crown jewels from the past 600 years. Not a vast amount, but what is there is very interesting It is incredible that such craftsmanship was achieved with the basic tools available to them in those times.

The Royal Treasury (Skattkammaren) is one of the parts of the Royal Castle which can be visited by tourists. Very interesting where the crowns of the past royalties can be seen.

This is where the old priceless jewels are kept. Most were kings gold crowns on display. It is really something to see up close and worth the time to stop by. I don't have photos because I believe they didn't not allow it.

Once again, a free entry with the Stockholm Card. Seriously, buy the card! And once again, I feel like Sweden gets a bad rap for not having jewels with the history of Austria or Hungary, but that's not really their fault, is it? Does that detract from the beauty of seeing the jewels, crowns and scepters? It sure doesn't. The... More

It's a small exhibit, but the royal crowns, scepters and other items are worth seeing. I might feel differently if I paid for it separately, but with the Stockholm card it is certainly worth the short stop.

The Royal Treasury is by no means bad and the average rating is maybe not quite fitting but we also didn't find it very good. Comparing to e.g. Tower in London or Rosenborg in Copenhagen it did seem a bit small. We went because our girls wanted to see the tiaras worn by Princess Sofia (Yep, they have associated the...

an impressive collection of crown jewels for the Swedish Royal Family. a ticket gets you access to the treasury, Tre Kronor and the royal apartments and one other museum in the palace. If you want the guided tour of the treasury you must request a ticket as the space on the tour is limited. check the times online for the... More

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighborhood 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.
