You can visit the World Heritage Site of Drottningholm Palace all year round. The summer season has now started, and the Palace is open daily. Guided tours are included in the admission price.
Drottningholm Palace — together with the Chinese Pavilion, the Palace Theatre and the Palace Park — is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Drottningholm Palace is the best preserved 17th century royal palace in Sweden, and is representative of all royal architecture in Europe during that period.

The Palace was built by architect Nicodemus Tessin the Elder, using French influences as a model, and was commissioned by Queen Hedvig Eleonora. A number of royal personages have since left their mark on the Palace.

During the summer season, which begins on 1 May, all the attractions at Drottningholm are open and the Palace Park is in full bloom.
