Summer opening

During the summer, all ten royal palaces and their museums, parks, chapels, shops and cafés will be open.

Take a trip to the royal palaces and visit the locations that have played central roles in Sweden's royal history. The palaces are home to four centuries of art and history, as well as some of the country's best-preserved interiors.

The Chinese Pavilion in Drottningholm Palace Park and Gustav III's Pavilion in Haga Park will be open from May onwards. The Riddarholm Church – Stockholm's only preserved mediaeval abbey – will also open its doors in May.

"I would strongly recommend visiting the parks that surround several of our royal palaces. Here, nature meets culture and history meets the present day – visitors of all ages can have fun and enjoy their own voyages of discovery."

The above quotation is from Crown Princess Victoria, welcoming visitors to the cultural treasury of the royal palaces.

From June onwards, you can visit the palaces of Strömsholm, Tullgarn, Rosersberg, Ulriksdal and Rosendal. The Royal Palace of Stockholm and Gripsholm Castle are open all year round, and daily during the summer season. The Royal Stables will also have summer opening hours.
