“Great half day trip out of the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

This was a nice place to take a half day trip out of the city. I recommend taking the boat ride there, it lasts about an hour and takes you through the archipelago. The grounds are pretty and nice to walk around in. The palace itself is nice. The best part of my visit was the court theater, one of the oldest preserved Baroque theaters in the world. It was fascinating to see the wooden stage and hear the sound effects behind stage. Definitely made it worth the trip.

“The oficial royal residence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

This palace is the official royal family residence. That's why it is accessible only on the outside. The garden of the palace is ok to walk around.

“Nice Boat Ride”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

We went to the Drottningholm Palace in Stockholm. The boat ride is very scenic. The palace is very old and the gardens are unbelievable. The pagoda behind the palace is historic and has all kinds of artifacts to view.
