For more than a century, the Royal Stables have been located at Väpnargatan 1 in the centre of Stockholm. The main duty of the Royal Stables is planning and providing transport for the Royal Family, both by car and horse-drawn carriages. Horses and carriages are used for cermonial and official occations such as incoming state visits, State Opening of Parliament, formal audiences at which the King receives new ambassadors, and municipal visits. The Royal Stables trace their roots back to the time of King Gustav Vasa, making them a significant part of our cultural heritage in terms of classic art of riding and driving. The Royal Stables are also responsible for administering, developing and showing this heritage to the public. Visitors are welcome all year round for guided tours.

Here you will find Stockholm’s most majestic residential buildings, a beautiful market hall from 1888 displaying gourmet foods from around the world and the Swedish Royal Dramatic Theatre with its awe-inspiring architecture. At night, legendary nightclubs make the perfect location to observe the natives (and those aspiring to become natives of this exclusive neighborhood) in their natural habitat and to enjoy the latest produce of the Swedish house music scene.
