Drottningholm Palace has changed over the years, and the members of royalty who have lived there have left their mark on the interiors of the palace, according to changing styles and fashions.

Queen Hedvig Eleonora, Queen Lovisa Ulrika and King Gustav III have strongly influenced the décor of the reception rooms.

Queen Hedvig Eleonora's State Bedchamber was at the heart of the reception rooms in the 17th century, and was created by Sweden's leading artists and craftsmen.

Here, there are also a number of rooms that were decorated for King Gustav III during the 18th century, including the Chinese Salon with its chinoiserie influences that were popular at the time.

The reception rooms are open for independent visits all year round. Guided tours are also available. The palace will be temporarily closed in connection with the christening – see the dates via the link below. The Chinese Pavilion and the Palace Park will remain open as usual.
