“wonderful way to spend a good part of your day”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

Beautiful palace and surrounding area. We spilt the fish soup at the cafe and it was wonderful. Sat on a bench and watched the boats go by on a lovely day. What more can you ask for? Easy ride out there on the T and the 177 bus.

“Beautiful Gardens”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

Drottingholm is a must visit for someone who loves gardens. I learnt from the locals that it was Queen's islet. Should be visited during summer for the greenery and during the start of autumn for the different shades of nature.

“A castle fit for a king and queen”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

Well what can I say.
This was on my have to see list and I can honestly say it is beautiful.
That being said I wouldn't go back. It took a long time and considerable expense (in addition to the Stockholm card)
You only get to visit a very limited part of the castle ( it took about 20 minutes) and then I went to the Chinese Pavillion which was interesting but also brief. The ground are beautiful.

So if you have limited time I'd skip it.

“A Royal experience”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

- Location of the Palace itself has a loyal look to it. Feels like a dream :)
- The process is very well set & there are English tour guides available.
- Got an opportunity to see a Palace from the inside & it was a different experience like Golden ceilings, thrones of King & Queen, huge paintings with golden frames etc.
- There is a huge garden in front of the palace & it has a charm of its own. Very well maintained - with some food joints available in between.

Overall, a nice experience of the Royal life :)
