The changing of the guards was interesting but other locations (London) with similar changing of the guards are better. Worth seeing it once.

It was a rainy day, so we decided to take the Royal Palace tour. We bought tickets that let us also enter the treasury and two other venues nearby. The Palace let us view about 14 rooms which were incredible. They are doing some interior...More

Went there for the guard exchange, which starts at 12:15. Quite fun to watch, although many people are there and therefore small people will have difficulties seeing. Did not tour the rest of the castle.

A walk through the palace can be crowded. Some good old cabinets, vases, pictures, rugs and a couple of statues. Wouldnt recomend unless a royalist or palace tourist. Outside grounds are worth a view and changing of guards is worth a few mins watch

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.

Unfortunately you have to pay. But once you buy you have four days to look at other museum as well.
