Drottningholm Palace Private Driving Tour
Initially inspired by the Palace of Versailles, Drottningholm Palace has been constantly updated and upgraded by the monarchs that have lived there. Today, it is the private home of Sweden’s royal family and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Located around a 30-minute drive from Stockholm, this private tour will whisk you from the city centre to the tranquil garden setting of the palace. Let your guide reveal the history of this regal home and help you discover the highlights, which include the Palace Gardens and Chinese Pavilion. The Pavilion boasts a wealth of historic Chinese-inspired furniture and artefacts, such as lacquered screens and stained glass, with some rooms retaining the original Chinese silk and paper wall coverings. Allow four hours for the trip and wear comfortable shoes for walking on unpaved and gravel walkways.
