from SEK 220

Take a cruise through scenic Lake Mälaren to world heritage site Drottningholm on Ekerö Island. Drottningholm Palace is the best persevered palace from the 17th century and several kings and queens have influenced the interior of the state rooms. In 1981 the Royal family moved in and today the palace is the permanent residence of the Swedish regents.

The Royal Domain of Drottningholm was developed in the 17th and 18th century, inspired by French models such as the Chateau de Versaille. The Palace was added to UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 1991 along with The Chinese Pavilion, the unique Court theatre and the surrounding park.

The cruise takes one hour one way. We recommend that you take a boat by 13:00 or earlier from Stadshusbron, to get enough time to see the sights before the last boat departure back to Stockholm.
