I have not visited the palace in quite some time and was pleased to see that basically the whole thing was open for touring. I have been stonewalled numerous times in the past by visiting dignataries, construction, etc. So, i was thrilled to be able...More

This ceremony takes place every day at midday and attracts huge crowds. It is well worth seeing as is the interior of the palace with plush furnishings and artworks.

So this is a typical tour of a palace. The best thing is the changing of the guard outside. DO NOT MISS THAT! It's at 12:15 during the week. It's an informative tour that walks you through the royal palace. Go see it, it's the...More

The palace is located in Gamla Stan - the Old Town. The interior is interesting and if you don't want to pay the admission price you can simply watch the changing of the guard that takes place around noon.

The guide for English speakers was great. She really knew her history and background to the royal family - and made the list very worthwhile, despite the summer crowds.

Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home
to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central
island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small
island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous
Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)

Yes, there is a charge. I went as part of a group - and so the price I paid would not necessarily be the same as the going rate. I think you should budget to spend at least USD30 per person for entry to both these places.

Unfortunately you have to pay. But once you buy you have four days to look at other museum as well.
