Drottningholm is Sweden’s best-preserved royal palace, designed in the French style by Nicodemus Tessin the Elder for Queen Hedvig Eleonora. The palace has changed with the times, and the royal personages who lived there each left their mark on the interiors, in keeping with changing styles and fashions. Hedvig Eleonora, Lovisa Ulrika and Gustav III are among those who played a part in furnishing the state apartments.
The state apartments are open to visitors all year round. Guided tours are also available.
Drottningholm Palace is on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. With the exotic Chinese pavilion, the court theatre and the magnificent royal park, the entire Drottningholm estate is a unique cultural treasure.
