Tours for Royal Palace
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.

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.
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!
Great little sight to see, one ticket gives you entry to the treasury (with some wonderful crown jewels on show), and the royal quarters at the Palace itself. There's a small museum here too but I would prioritise the former two sights, wonderful!
One of the most beautiful excursions you could take..i did not go inside the palace because the area around was so mesmerizing. The trip to the palace by ferry in itself is a pleasurable experience. Once you reach there, the waterfront, the scenic beauty and the royal gardens are not a sight to be missed
A must see if visiting Stockholm for the first time. Prepare at least 3 hrs given the lengthy trails and sheer size of the palace and surrounding structures. The overall atmosphere of the palace is quiet nice and impressive with paid entrance for the palace itself and some other structures but free to roam outside of it if budget is a concern. Highly recommended!
