I will highly recommend everyone to visit this little summer palace. One can appreciate the changes which happened during the napoleonic wars. One will be able to admire the exquisite French influence in the decoration of the palace. As it was built up when the first bernadotte became the King of Sweden. One will also hear the story of how... More

It's slightly hidden away in Djurgarden but this summer palace is most certainly worth seeking out. Wonderfully restored interiors, mostly from the Empire period but some from later in the 19th century, with the overwhelming sense being simply of colour. The central room on the first floor sits at the heart of the building and positively glows. We also had... More

People use to visit the main castle, or directly take the ferry to the summer castle of the royal family. But this little gem is only a 30 minutes walk away hidden with the the big inner city park "djurgården". It's itself not big, as it is a summer castle, but can stand up for a part of the history....

The interior of this lovely little palace, really more like a summer villa, is accessible only by guided tour. We showed up at the appointed time for the English-language tour and discovered that we were the only guests and thus enjoyed a private tour with a most knowledgeable guide. It was surprising that even though this palace is within walking... More

This was my favorite of three royal palaces in Stockholm. Technically, it was not a residence, but a summer retreat. During the summer, tours in English and Swedish are only given at noon, 1:00, 2:00, and 3:00 pm, so you may want to hit another tourist attraction on the island (and there are lots!) in the morning. In September, tours... More

Small, pretty palace used as a summer retreat by royalty. Only viewable on the hourly guided tours. The tour was great with lots of interesting background history on Karl IV and the Bernadotte royal family.

The guide was really nice, and she was very knowledgeable about the palace and its history. It was very informative and interesting. I do recommend the guided tour for the palace! Photos are allowed, but no flash photography.

I would recommend viewing this sweet little palace, just a bit of a walk away from the Vasa Museum. It is very elegant, and the stroll to get there is very scenic and picturesque. Much of the interior is antique, but also renovated. Nevertheless it is worth visiting. There is no charge to enter once you have the Stockholm Tourist... More

Since we had visited the Vasa Museum and the Nordiskamuseet, we continued on to this palace. No photos are allowed inside, and there is no AC. This was used as a summer palace, and our guide was informative. It's amazing how well the guides speak English. Admission is included in the Stockholm Card, but even if I had to pay... More

The island of Djurgården and its northern mainland extension, Djurgårdsbrunn, impress with a mix of nature and an abundance of museums, while being located in walking distance to Stockholm’s city center. Djurgården not only invites visitors to take endless walks through a beautiful park landscape without having to leave the city, but also offers an incredible range of entertainment facilities, such as an open air museum which specializes in the Swedish way of life pre-industrialization, the renowned Vasa Museum with its legendary sailing ship, and Sweden’s most famous amusement park Gröna Lund, which is more than a 100 years old.
