Drottningholm Palace

Originally built in late 16th century on Lovon island, Drottningholm Palace is the private residence of the Swedish Royal Family since 1981. It is also a popular tourist destination. This palace was used as summer residence throughout the 18th century, abandoned for some time during the first part of the 19th century and has since undergone several restorations and modernisations under Oscar I and II. Starting in early 20th century, the palace was restored back to its 18th century design. The palace also hosts a church, theatre, garden and The Chinese Pavillion. Drottningholm Palace lunch or dinner cruises from Stockholm are also available.
