I thought this House of Nobility was one of Stockholm's most beautiful buildings with its stunning Dutch Baroque style when I was introduced to the exterior during a free walking tour of the city. As soon as I learned that it opens to the public...More

Open to the public for just an hour in the middle of the day, it is well worth timing your visit to see the inside of this beautiful building. Swedish nobility still use this building for private functions. You can see hundreds of coats of...More

This was one of my favourite buildings in Stockholm, despite its location at a fairly busy intersection. It was very late afternoon when I visited in Jan and so it didn't seem possible to actually go inside. But it still looked most impressive from the...More

This is where you can find all the Swedish marks for Swedish lords, earls and other upperclass families. But it is indeed beautiful inside and out !

I strongly recommend booking a guided tour at Riddarhuset. The guide, Oscar Langenskiöld, was not only impressively knowledgeable, he also demonstrated a great ability to impart his knowledge in an engaging and reflective manner. The tour gave me insight into a «hidden» part of Swedish...More

You would think to see something like this in St. Petersburg, Russia. Likely built by a Czar to appease their ego this building is so imposing, but no, it's a government building really and so it's for the people. I didn't go inside due to...More

A must see, you can't miss it on the edge of Gamla Stan towards the Riddarholm island. Beautiful architecture, stately, well maintained and restored. Worth at least a walk by.

There might be an impression, given Sweden’s modern liberal, secular democracy, that monarchy and nobility would be an anachronism but in fact there is strong public support for contemporary Swedish Royalty. This grand building, established in the mid 1600s, portrays superbly the history and activities...More

Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home
to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central
island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small
island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous
Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)
