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. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Stockholm Itinerary 5 Days.

It's a majestic and enormous place.... The architecture in rooms was marvelous and the structures remarkable.... The tour guide was nice but I believe that you can make the same tour on your own... Information were everywhere in the palace.. The price was OK cause except palace, you can visit with the same ticket the treasury room and the Kronor museum.
Beautiful location on the outskirts of the old town in Stockholm. Time it right and you get to enjoy the ceremony of the change of the royal guard. Well worth checking the time for before you go. The museum in the basement of the castle is really nice with many historical artifacts from different royals.
We were only outside for the changing of the guard. Beautiful building, partly being renovated as we speak. The changing of the guard was quite long and maybe too informative, but on the other hand very interesting to see so many women and young people in the army. In the winter it might be really cold, with the wind and no sun, so keep that in mind when visiting!
I have visited Stockholm and the palace on a winter noon. We have seen the guard change ceremony and must admit that it is one of the best synchronized ceremonies I have seen. Apart from the ceremony, the palace as such is an average one and not gigantic either. This is well maintained though. Entry to palace is not free but guard changing ceremony is free of charge. Palace entry ticket can be clubbed with royal armory and the kronor museum.
Just passed by on a quiet winter day. You can take pictures of the guards. Really nice change of guard ritual.
