"Kina Castle" Ekerö Things to Do Tip by Sjalen

Ekerö Things to Do: 10 reviews and 14 photos

Known as the Chinese Pavilion in English, this too is a part of Drottningholm's World heritage. Queen Lovisa Ulrika was given the castle as a birthday gift by king Adolf Fredrik and as Chinese things were in fashion all over Europe, the palace has a wonderful architecture with dragons in the corners and is very colourful (just wait for me to scan my pictures or check the link below). Some decades after its creation the wooden version was replaced by a stone palace as it was such a success. You can go on guided tours here too summertime but then save enough time to do it as it takes around 15 minutes to walk here through the Drottningholm grounds. Once you get here, there is a cosy cafe in the barn next to it as well. The inside is filled with...you guessed it: a china collection :) It also has great rococo furniture.
