"Drottningholm Palace" Drottningholm Things to Do Tip by spidermiss

Drottningholm Things to Do: 1 reviews and 0 photos

I spent a day at Drottingholm Palace and its grounds on my Stockholm Stay in August 2003. The Palace which was built in the late 17th Century and is currently the home of the Swedish royal family. It is a UNESCO world heritage site, the first site in Sweden to be added on, and is known as 'little Versailles'.

I visited the impressive Chinese Pavilion that King Adolf Fredrik had built as a surprise birthday present for Lovisa Ulrika in 1743. I also toured Drottningholms Slottstheater which is known as the oldest theatre in the world where the interior hasn't changed much since it was built and performances still continue today.
