Stockholm Royal Palace (Kungliga Slottet) Tours

star-4
243 Reviews
Stockholm Royal Palace (Kungliga Slottet)
With its baroque facade, lavish Royal Apartments, and impressive treasury, the Stockholm Royal Palace is everything you'd expect from a regal abode. Although the Swedish royal family now resides in Drottningholm Palace, the Royal Palace still holds an important role, both as a historic monument and as the host of banquets and receptions.

The Basics
Most sightseeing and walking tours of Stockholm include a photo stop at the Royal Palace, often timed to coincide with the daily Changing of the Guard ceremony. For those who prefer to explore independently, hop-on hop-off bus and boat tours stop outside the palace. Purchase a Stockholm Card to gain free entrance, along with access to a wealth of other Stockholm attractions.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Plan to spend one or two hours touring the palace and on-site museums.
  • Visitor facilities include restrooms, lockers, a gift shop, and a café (summer only).
  • Most areas of the palace are accessible for wheelchair users.

How to Get There
The palace lies on the north end of Gamla stan, Stockholm's Old Town, on the island of Stadsholmen. Buses stop at Slottsbacken, just outside the palace, while the closest metro (Tunnelbana) station is Gamla stan, a 5-minute walk from the palace.

When to Get There
Stockholm Royal Palace is open year-round, but summer is the most popular time to visit , when it's best to visit early if you want to avoid crowds. Summer visitors can also enjoy the parade of the Royal Guard, King Gustav III's Museum of Antiquities, and the summer café.

Inside the Stockholm Royal Palace
Palace visitors can peek into the Royal Apartments, including the Bernadotte Apartments, the Banquet Hall, and King Carl Gustaf's Jubilee Room; marvel at the crown jewels in the Treasury; and browse the royal book collection in the Bernadotte Library. There are also several museums to explore, including the Royal Armoury, the Tre Kronor Museum, and King Gustav III's Museum of Antiquities (summer only).
