During this tour you will visit the captivating and stately, Drottningholm Palace, the first Swedish site to be placed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The palace was chosen for this esteemed honor because it is regarded as the best-preserved example of an 18th-century palace in Sweden and is representative of all European royal architecture that used Versailles as its model. Situated on an island in a small inlet of Lake Mälaren west of Stockholm, the Palace has been the residence of Sweden's Royal Family since 1981.

During your coach ride to Drottningholm, you will pass through the southern residential district of Södermalm, crossing the Western Bridge, which spans Riddarfjärden and offers a magnificent view of Stockholm's skyline. Work on Drottningholm Palace was initiated in 1662 according to the design of Nicodemus Tessin the Elder. Upon his death in 1681, the project was completed by his son Nicodemus Tessin the Younger, who also designed the French-inspired Baroque Garden. During your visit to Drottningholm you will visit the magnificently decorated State Apartments, and enjoy a stroll in the picturesque surroundings, including the French- and English-style landscaped gardens.

Following what will surely be a memorable visit to Drottningholm, your coach will transfer you back to the pier in Stockholm, making a photo stop along the way at Fjällgatan. Widely considered to be the city's best vantage point, you'll certainly want to capture some amazing panoramic pictures from this ideal location.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 2 miles of walking - at times on cobblestone surfaces and there are numerous stairs to negotiate at the palace. Therefore, it is not available to wheelchair guests and is not recommended for those with mobility concerns. Flat, comfortable walking shoes are suggested.
