The Royal Palace and Drottningholm Palace are open for visitors, according to current recommendations. All guided tours and certain programs are cancelled from 23 December.
Guided tours may not be held indoors. All visitors must move around the palaces individually in order to maintain a distance from each other. Groups may only gather outside the respective palace, as this allows space for them to maintain a distance from others who need to pass. We recommend the Royal Palaces app and our audio guides for those who want a self-guided tour inside the palaces.
The palace is not offering any public tours.
There are a limited number of tickets that are valid for a specific day and timeslot. Purchasing an admission ticket guarantees entry at the time stated on the ticket. Admission tickets can be purchased online at the regular price.
Admission tickets with a tour operator discount can only be purchased at the entrance on arrival. You are welcome to contact us before your visit to make a reservation or check availability. Contact information can be found further down this page, under Contact and inquiries.
