“Loved it!”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

I didn't have a lot time to see the Palace, but did get to go in for a while. The architecture is really beautiful, and all the rooms are full of interesting pieces from history with information by each one. Unfortunately (like most historical, indoor places) there are no photos allowed, which is sad because it is super beautiful.

While outside I got to see the changing of the guard which was a big hit, the music was great and the guard is large. I would definitely come back here again and spend more time.

“Good if you have the time”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

Try to get a tour if you can. It is neat to see. It is still in operation so sometimes parts of it are closed. No photos allowed inside.

“Well presented”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

Not as large as many of the Royal Palaces around Europe but very interesting and well worth visiting. It only takes a couple of hours to see everything but it is not very expensive so give it a go.

“Largest Palace in Europe”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Get up close and personal with the guards who will even chat to you. Stand a metre away as they change the guard and talk you through it. Very well done!

“Must see in Stockholm”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

This is a must see. The palace has a lot of interesting rooms that they use for official occasions and they describe some of their unique procedures when leaders from other countries visit. I would give this at least 3 hours to really enjoy it and read all that they have on display.
