    This royal palace is truly impressive and surprisingly ugly. It shows the absurdity of a monarchy very well. The massive waste of ressources, the absurd military decoration royals gave to each other for every useless thing they did and simply the bad taste monarchs had and still have can be admired everywhere. I am very glad we never had a monarchy in Switzerland and it's good that this time is over in most of Europe. It's fascinating to me that Nations like Sweden or UK are still tolerating and supporting their royals.

    The royal palace is the most notable feature in Sweden.This palace is constructed at 1600s.More renovations were done after that.The Baroque architecture is been followed in the palace. The entry is not free.You need to take separate ticket for entering the royal palace even though if you have daily pass.You can typically spend around 15 to 20 minutes inside the palace. There will be guard changing ceremony by 11 am daily.You are free to watch the ceremony.The duration of ceremony is around 15 to 20 minutes. There is a small shop adjacent to royal palace where you can find the products for sale which are been currently used by the royal palace and the royal family.However it's little bit expensive.

    Must visit place in Stockholm. You can learn the history and many stuffs of Sweden Royal Family.

  • 5Carl P. 6 months ago
    A must see in Stockholm, it is far greater then one would expect. Since Sweden is a quite open country, you get to get close to to see much even if the king is in the residence. Take the whole tour including the Knights church if you have time. The crown is also interesting to see if you are interested in jewelry. Since most of the activities is inside this is a prefect thing to do on a rainy day in Stockholm. There is also many interesting things around the castle in the old town. If you come by car. Best thing to to is park close to the water on Skeppsbron.

  • 5Rex Fox O. 1 year ago
    Absolutely loved it. The Palace is stunningly beautiful and the audio guide is really good. Just remember to bring headphones! 10/10, a must see when in Stockholm

  • 5Mariam G. 1 year ago
    A very beautiful building with amazing details. I visited 2 times but in the first time the ticket allowed me to see 3 building and now only one . I advise anyone to take a look at the palace

  • 5Safa L. 11 months ago
    Of course if you're in Stockholm you must visit the Royal Palace The entrance is not expensive but it closes at 4pm so it's better to go in the morning if you want to enjoy the visit Also by night it's beautiful but you can see only the outside

  • 5_anj _. 10 months ago
    Very beautiful and historic.the old apartments and the other apartments including guest ones were grand. The audio guide that's available with a qr code was very detailed and engaging. Easy boards in English are very helpful. Grand portraits and furniture. Worth visiting! The roof paintings are awe-inspiring.

  • 5Adam L. 10 months ago
    A must for any touristic visits to Stockholm. Even though the entrance is a bit hard to find, the pathfinding is worth the effort. Such beautiful interior and lots of historical value. It's amazing to walk around corridors and rooms that are actually in use by the royal family presently. The custodians are very helpful and seemed delightful to enlighten us in answering any questions we might have.

  • 5Getter M. 10 months ago
    With the general admission ticket you can roam the underground museum of the palace history as well as the Royal Apartments which I highly recommend checking out. Make sure to also see the changing of the Royal Guard at 12:15 pm daily. 1:15pm on Sundays.

  • 5Bebs B. 7 months ago
    We had a good experience and love to share.They have a changing guards ceremony and fun to see.If you want to buy a ticket it's very worth it. You can see the King's Palace inside, the jewelry museum, and kroner museum. Happy visit everyone.

  • 5Mohammadreza S. 8 months ago
    It is an amazing place which i recommend to visit while you are in Stockholm. You pay 16 Euros for an adult and then you can visit three different museums. You can get 50 % discount if you are student by showing your student card. In addition, try to be there at around 12 pm to see soldiers parade in front of the Royal palace museum. There is also Nobel prise museum so close to this museum and you can visit that too by getting its entrance fee

  • 5Nick W. 8 months ago
    Beautiful royal palace in a beautiful setting! Worth visiting if you’re into history, architecture, royalty and more! You have to visit, pictures don’t do it justice!!

  • 5P. 7 months ago
    Visited during the off season in Stockholm(March-April). No wait at the entrance. Great place, with a majestic staircase, that goes to 3 different exhibitions, the Royal apartment, legionary room, and Queen Room. At 12:45PM you can see the guard shifts at the entrance of the Royal Palace.

  • 5Bryce H. 8 months ago
    Its one of the cheaper excursions within Stockholm. For some, it may not be worth it. But it is a very beautiful 16th and 17th century palace. One ticket gets you access to 3 different parts of the palace which is why I think its worth it and shouldn't take you much longer than 2 or 3 hours. If you dont pay to get in, at least walk around and try to catch the changing of the guards. Time varies depending on season but I believe it was at least always on Sunday and Wednesday at noon.

    Wonderful experience at the Royal Palace. I went on a Monday in September and there were minimal crowds which is great. Your admission ticket also includes access to other museums on site so you should go and check them out too!

  • 5Abdelrahaman E. 1 year ago
    Amazing place. So much history and culture to pick up and absorb. The staff are incredibly knowledgeable, helpful and always happy to share information about the palace. The very visible pride, dedication and eagerness of the staff humming about the place (and with Gusto!) makes the visit here just that much more exciting. Tip: Ask questions and take in the experience.

  • 5Amber W. 1 year ago
    Absolutely stunning interior! The rooms are so elegant and the colors are amazing. I would also reccomend checking the schedule to see when the changing of the guards takes place, very neat thing to watch! I would definitely reccomend visiting!

  • 5Deep P. 2 years ago
    Go if you like how royalties live. Time to visit 3 hours ( normal curiosity visit) Headphones (for a good audio tour) Water bottle, protein bars No washrooms in palace It real gives glimpse of the lifestyle kings and queens have. Ever room, the walls, decorations and even the daily use things is royal and unique. This palace is still in use for few annual meetings and as a guest house of state representatives of different countries. Audio details of each section gives illustrated details. I enjoyed every section with great audio input. In my opinion a must visit.

  • 5R C. 2 years ago
    There are no tours currently being given because of the Coronavirus but there are so many informative signs in each room along with an app where you can either read or listen to information about the rooms. It was very huge on the inside and we were delighted that so many of the rooms are decorated as they were. We were surprised to see there was a museum in the basement, we almost missed it. It had great artifacts and information about the history of the palace. The workers there were friendly and able to answer all my questions. Glad we were able to go!

  • 5Qasim S. 2 years ago

    A very nice and royal place. You can feel the royal atmosphere. The courtyard is not so big but still is worth visiting.

  • 5Lóránt G. 3 years ago
    A grand and luxurious palace with wonderful furnishings. This is Stockholm's main attraction. You must check it out! Several times a day, with spectacular, ornate guard changing, which you should definitely watch! Worth it. But beware, because they are stolen in large crowds !!! Up to a day at the embassy and other offices !!!!!!! Be careful !!!!!! There are many different attractions around. You can spend the whole day in the area.

  • 5Melissa P. 2 years ago
    This place is huge! We spent two full hours and could have spent two more, but we started too close to closing time for that. There's so much to look at! They said to start upstairs because that is the biggest and they weren't kidding. It's huge! We almost missed the old palace museum in the basement. Would have loved to have spent much more time there. Don't miss the Armory or the Treasury. There's great stuff to see.

  • 5Ann A. 3 months ago
    I visited here on a one day trip to Sweden. It was a great experience. The palace is large, very beautiful and well maintained and you can take a short tour in certain areas of the palace which was nice. If you’re lucky enough, you would get to see the palace guards changing shifts.

    Very grateful to the Royal Family of Sweden for sharing a portion of their life to the public. It's nice to see the beautiful interiors of the palace and the opulence that goes with it. It's good to have a guide like Irene when visiting the palace as you you'll hear the stories and event history for each room / space inside. Grateful for the opportunity to see how royals live in the modern society. Had a quick glance of the changing of the guards as well. Very impressed.

  • 5Norris L. 5 months ago
    Quite stunning, especially knowing that it is still in use to this modern day. Lots of fine art and artifacts to see. Watching the changing if the guards ceremony is recommended if it fits your schedule.

    Amazing is an absolute understatement! There is so much beauty, history, and things to see here. The Palace does a a great job explanation the different transitions the grounds have seen over the different periods. Make sure you see the cathedral and the soldiers marching. 100% a must visit!

    Simply great. Actually it's several visits. The royal jewels, the flats and the armoury. It is surprising that the flats are still in use (although recent visitors have declined the honour and gone to the hotel). Booked a couple of hours for the visit ... When booking you have to choose a time for the visit and there is only one hour of flexibility.

    We enjoyed a lovely visit to the royale palace in July. Only reason I will give it a 4/5 is that there unfortunately were no guided tours offered. But the staff was super friendly and the walking route was well organized with audio descriptions available by QR code. Would definitely recommend if you are in Stockholm and want to learn about the royals and their history!

  • 4Duncan de W. 1 year ago
    When visiting such I’m always wondering what it would look like when royals and presidents meet in a palace, have dinner, have a few too many drinks and finally dance on the tables. Good thing there are plenty of guest rooms so they won’t come out until they’re sober again...

  • 4Gregory S. 1 year ago
    Charming Palace, couldn't take my eyes off the chandelier's! A 'Must see' when in Stockholm, and being next door to the 'Old Town' the location is great for a big day out

  • 4Jessica V. 2 years ago
    Beautiful palace so much to see. I was also able to see the exhibition Märta Måås-Fjetterström: "Look at the carpets - it's me". It was about the carpets she designed, her sources of inspiration, life, career and the conditions for female entrepreneurship during the first half of the 20th century. Interesting stuff if your a textile fanatic. The toilets are located in the palace square, they are very clean and next door to this is the palace shop with lots of goodies to look at.

  • 4Petr S. 2 years ago
    From the outside, the building is impressive, but a bit boring. The interiors are beautiful and correspond to the importance of the place. Unfortunately, the treasury and the chapel were closed at the "covid time", but the royal apartments were doubtless worth it.

    (Translated by Google) The castle is really beautiful, and to our surprise, you get a glimpse of a lot of rooms. I think it's a shame that the royal family is marketed so extremely, but that's normal in the tourism industry, it's no different in England. Otherwise we really liked it. The many small and partly golden details and the ceiling paintings in the rooms were really nice. I was also very impressed by the throne. Definitely worth a visit. (Original) Das Schloss ist echt schön, und zu unserer Überraschung, kriegt man in echt viele Räume einen Einblick. Schade finde ich das die Königsfamilie so extrem vermarktet wird, aber das ist normal in der Tourismusbranche, ist ja in England nicht anders. Ansonsten hat es uns echt gefallen. Die vielen kleinen und teils goldenen Details und die Deckenmalereien in den Räumen waren echt schön. Auch der Thron hat mich sehr beeindruckt. Ist auf jedenfall einen Besuch wert.

    Nice and so, but mostly walking through a couple of rooms with variants of Rococo interior. The kids got a map to find animals inte decor. Harder than we thought. Would like more of the history of the fire and how it was before.
