16 Things You Have To Do In Stockholm, Sweden; Yaya; Hand Luggage Only

Sweden – Royal Domain of Drottningholm

When it comes to European cities to visit, it probably comes as no surprise that Stockholm is ranked rather highly on the list.

Alas, like most Scandinavian cities,  it isn’t the cheapest to visit and so it tends to get overlooked for more Southern European cities (like Lisbon, Paris, Madrid… etc – I could go on and on here but you get my drift).

Thing is though, Stockholm is definitely worth adding to your list of cities to visit, especially so seeing as there are new airline routes constantly being added which opens up access to this amazing city like never before.

The Swedes are also the Kings and Queens of work-life balance and it’s never more apparent than in the city of Stockholm, which makes it the perfect place for a long weekend jaunt.

How to get to Drottningholm Palace

We used our Stockholm Pass for the ferry ride to Drottningholm as well as entrance into the Drottningholm Palace.  A ferry ticket as well as entrance to the palace itself and the Chinese Theater.

Stockholm, the capital and largest city of Sweden, offers a wealth of tourist activities.

Stockholm is the Swedish capital and covers an area of 73 square miles spread across 14 islands. It is one of the most visited cities in Scandinavia partly due to its world-class infrastructure and accommodation within the city. However, it is the city’s numerous historical and modern attractions which truly leave visitors impressed.

10. Stockholm metro

The Stockholm metro is the main transportation system used to get around the city of Stockholm. The 65.7 mile-long metro system was opened on October 1, 1950 and ferries over 300 million passengers per year.

Drottningholm Palace may not be the most famous royal residence in the world, but it certainly is storied. Not only is the palace, which sits in a suburb of Stockholm and serves as a private residence for the Swedish royal family, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it also plays host to one of the most famed opera festivals in the world. But it’s not architecture or history that’s put the castle in the spotlight: The Local reports that Sweden’s Queen Silvia insists the castle and its grounds are haunted.

“There’s a lot of history here. There are also little friends…the ghosts,” the queen said in a documentary that aired on Thursday. “They’re all very friendly, but you sometimes feel like you aren’t alone.”
