Lovely setting

The palace is set on the waterside with great views across the water. The colours blend well with the lovely park land. An interesting visit and good place to relax as well.

Perfect for the history nerd

Being very interested in history and a fan of palaces and castles I really enjoy visiting Ulriksdal. The really nice park for example is a perfect place for a relaxing moment, enjoying the view of the beautiful palace. The larger park is a splendid walking area surrounded by both the water and forest.

The palace itself is definitely worth a visit, going inside it's like you travelled back in time in a time machine sensing what it was like living here once upon a time.
The palace park offers more buildings to visit, i.e. the grand greenery and old stables. There are also a couple of cafés and restaurants with good quality food etc.

An interesting part of the area is that people actually live in and just outside the park, making it a lot more vibrant and dynamic place than most palaces and castle parks.

My favorite spot in Stockholm, it can get quite busy during weekends, but it's worth seeing anyway. The "palace" itself it's not spectacular, but if you're looking for a great place to chill or be around nature, away from the city-Urliksdal is your best choice ;)

The palace area of Ulriksdal has a lot to offer. Join the guided tour of the palace, admire the sculptures in the Orangery, stroll thru the garden and discover Queen Kristina’s splendid coronation carriage in the stables. Both the palace and the Orangery are open to the public during weekends in spring and autumn and daily in the summer months.

Amazing Huge Place
Sep 2017 • Friends
Pleasant place to walk around but not easily located. You must have a car as you have to drive deep inside to see this gem. Allow an hour or two to be able to experience the rich ambiance of this place

Highly recommended

Modest castle in a beautiful park
Jul 2017 • Solo
The castle is a very beatiful and well proportioned rokoko building from the outside, but the interior does not actually match the beauty of the outside environment.
This is because during the early 19th century the castle's rokoko interior was removed and it was made into a hospital for war invalids.
Since then, two Swedish kings have lived in it, and added interior decoration from 2 different periods. Karl XV was a collector of a number of random artefacts of various quality from different earlier periods.
The most interesting parts of the castle interior are the early twentieth century interiors from the apartment used by the previous king Gustav VI Adolf, (the present king's grandfather). There is a "modern" kitchen, from the 1920:s. The highlight of the visit is the living room from 1923 given to Gustav Adolf and his spouse Louise Mountbatten as a wedding present with furniture by Carl Malmsten, textiles, carpets and art by the best Swedish artists of the time.

The castle is located in a beautiful park by a lake, part french baroque park, part English park. Lovely for a walk or picnic. The entry to the castle is part of a combination ticket, which also gives entry to the winter garden of the castle,
that now houses part of the National museum's sculpture collection, and also to a guided tour of Confidencen, the renovated castle theatre.

The castle itself can only be visited on guided tours. I think, that they will do the tour in English if needed. When I visited we were only swedish speaking visitors.

The castle theatre shows opera and other performances in the summertime and it is quite nice to see this old castle theater in operation.

Nearby is a large beautiful garden center, Ulriksdals slottsträdgård, worth a visit for its own sake for those so inclined, with a famous vegetarian buffet lunch, on weekdays, recommended. It is not actually affiliated with the castle.

The park is located in a larger nature area, also worth visiting for itself, very popular with the locals, (of which I am one). The park is free to enter.

Ulriksdals castle is by no means a must do for a foreign tourist, except for those interesting in early 20th century interior decoration, in which case Gustav VI Adolf's living room is kind of a must in my opionion.
But the whole area makes a nice day visit, a little bit off the beaten tourist track, and also for people interested in nature and culture.

Well worth the visit

Visited Ulriksdals castle with my family (including my teenage daughter) and we all loved it. Both the guided tour in the castle and the orangeries were very interesting and the guides soo good. Beautiful surroundings and we had a great picknick in the park.

The castle is not impressive but the garden is beautiful
Jul 2016
Castle itself is very small and does not have much to offer, however, the garden is a nice place to have your day out with your family / friends or only yourself in a sunny day. You can choose to have a picnic, walk by the lake & in the park or simply enjoy your cafe / tea in the cafe.
