About Royal Palace, Stockholm
The palace is quite a source of instant gratification, especially if you’re a history buff or simply enjoy looking at luxurious opulence. One of Europe’s most magnificent castles, the Palace is still the official residence of the Swiss monarch. Built on the site of a medieval fortress, various remodeling processes have left a primarily Baroque-High Renaissance architectural mix. The most famous of things to do here is watch the changing of the guards, that sadly enough, happens only in the summer. You’ll find large crowds gathering every day just to watch the guards proceed through this historic drill.
Other than that, enjoy over 600 hundred rooms accessible to the public, several of which are pretty good museums (the Tre Konnor Museum, the Treasury and the Armory). Some rooms are officially used for important receptions. Rooms of special note include the magnificent Charles XI gallery (modeled after the mirror room in Versailles), the beautiful Bernadotte Rooms, the State Room and the royal chapel.

Royal Palace, Stockholm Reviews - Write a Review
Great place, the architecture is very well preserved and it has very Renaissance/Victorian like structures and buildings. The museum also plays a vital role, acting as a visereal imagery of what the contents of the interior would have looked like. This brings in elements of lively emotions and social atmosphere of the times of old. It also displays cultural context well enough to show the longevity and preserved culture that the Swedes possess. I found the experience very impacting and I was truly amazed by the content(s) of the palace. The customer service was good. Very friendly workers and staff. The tour guide also explained and described everything in great depth. The demonstrations conducted by the Royal guards outside the courtyard were also superb. Like I said great place, definitely a place worth visiting.
Having seen a few palaces around the world, I felt this one is a bit understated, nevertheless it's functional and well looked after. Taking a guided tour would certainly help but I did the trip on my own and did not feel that I missed much. If you have a good guide book, that would be great. Worth a look. Entry fee applicable. Credit cards accepted.
I take my doggie for a walk around the Royal Palace every other night, which she loves, as do I. It's pompous and beautiful, at night the guards are so bored out of their minds it's the best time to chat with them. Lovely folk, usually. Without the crowds and under the beautiful lighting it really is a treat every time we do the loop.
Impressive enormous stylish building, and also very photogenic! It's the main attraction of Gamla Stan, the Stockholm's Old Town, which is the most beautiful and the most interesting part of the Sweden's capital. It's very well preserved, and it is a real pleasure to walk around.
Quite an interesting morning in the museum before the changing of the guard. The only real problem is much of the castle seems to be as dark as it was when it was built! The advantage though is that the extensive and fabulous tapestries on the walls are among the best centuries old tapestries I have seen, probably because they haven't seen the light of day since they were woven. Fortunately, my new Google Pixel phone took incredible pictures of the tapestries as well as the sumptuous rooms, jewelry, uniforms, and dresses on display. A surprisingly enjoyable morning. The changing of the guard is much longer than it needed to be, though does give the band time to entertain more after all the practice all bands require. The marching had a few nice choreographic moments, but was basically routine. Lots of handsome men though!
