Nice day trip. Just avoid going there by boats which are overcrowded and a disaster on the health and safety side. The palace is beautiful and the well tended gardens are a pleasure to walk through. Very correct food in the orangerie and restaurant next...More

The palace in Stockholm is used primarily for state visits and official events, but the Swedish royal family lives at Drottningholm, away from the bustle of the city. We had been there on a previous visit to Sweden, when we got there by boat from...More

We took the subway and bus to the palace before 10am. It is very easy. Almost all buses at Brommaplan could reach there. I am glad that we could arrive earlier than the tourists going by boat. Anyway, there were a group of people waiting...More

We recommend taking the boat from Stockholm - you can buy tickets to the palace with the boat tickets - and taking an afternoon to wander the house and grounds. There are countless period paintings to see as well as the architecture and fittings. There...More

The king and queen's main residence ... no bag checks, no metal dectectors when you enter. Amazing. Stunning rooms and vistas. Walk toward the end of the gardens and look back to the palace. stunning

Although 30-40 minutes from Central Station this palace is well worth a visit. The palace, Chinese pavilion, theatre and grounds are all worth a visit. We only had 3 hours there as had to get back to catch a plane but would recommend 4-5 hours.
