  • One of the many must see places in Stockholm! Best to visit during a nice summer day. There is a small coffee area near the Chinese pavilion.

  • The place itself is not that big. But the gardens surrounding it are huge. Not only are the gardens big but they are beautiful as well. The way that they decorate the trees is amazing. And very well maintained. There are fountains and waterfalls that are just so pretty. If you really wanted to see all of it you would need at the very least a few hours. There is a tiny hedge maze perfect for playing hide and seek.
  • It's not as beautiful as Versailles in France, but the building and surrounding gardens are worth seeing. You need 2-3 hours for the trip. Of course, if you like walking and relaxing, you need to reserve more time in this place. An adult ticket costs SEK 140.
