A guided tour will ensure that your visit to the palace is particularly memorable. Our knowledgeable guides bring objects to life, putting them into their historical contexts.

These tours cannot be booked in advance. To join a guided tour you buy an entrance ticket and a tour ticket 30 SEK at the cash desks. The guided tours are free of charge for children under 18 years of age (additional entrance ticket for child 7–17 years of age).

The guided tours takes approximately 45 minutes.  

The number of places on each tour is limited. To book a guided tour for larger groups, see menu Group Visits.
