Touring the Royal Palace was like visiting a beautiful decorative arts museum. Although the palace is still in use, visitors are allowed to walk through many areas of the palace that are lavishly decorated, as well as some of the private quarters when they are...More

The palace is huge and well maintained. With a entry fee, it's worth visiting the huge palace showcasing the bygone lifestyle and it shows many beautiful paintings, furniture & decor. Don't miss the army taking rounds of the palace showing some nice guarding. Photography is...More

The Treasury was beautiful. Crowns that date back to the 1700’s. The Royal Apartments were great to see. Plan for 2 hours to see all three attractions. We only had an hour to fit in the Apartments and the Treasury.

The Swedes are in the process of a 25 year restoration of the palace, so different parts will be worked on over the coming years. That said, the restoration work appears at this point to have little impace on the areas you would view and...More

Very nice to walk around, have a look at the grounds and especially walk around this area. Changing of the guards always nice!

Very well maintained. The rooms and salons explain the life of the royal family in the century. Furnitures very well done. only one think : it would be better that chairs and sofas were cover with less ugly blankets.

I would recommend this as part of a visit to Stockholm. Make sure you also visit the Royal Armoury. The changing of the guard was interesting but sorry, not to the standard of Buckingham palace. And soldiers on guard chewing gum, well!

We spent an excellent two hours here. In a lot of ways, it’s just like visiting the Louvre or Versailles. Room after room of baroque furnishings and tapestry. Currently one section is undergoing renovations. We especially enjoyed walking the perimeter on the outside to get...More

We unfortunately missed the changing of the guards because we weren’t aware, so if possible time your visit with that. Also we were looking forward to getting to see the church associated with the Royal Palace only to find out visiting hours are limited to...More

It was nice to be allowed to tour the royal palace. I do wish that some tourists would be more respectful of the fact that they are in someone's residence. I thought that this palace was rather low key. Sweden has been a very powerful...More

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)

Yes, there is a charge. I went as part of a group - and so the price I paid would not necessarily be the same as the going rate. I think you should budget to spend at least USD30 per person for entry to both these places.
