Travel Destinations and Photo Spots
Drottningholm Palace is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Stockholm and a great way to get to the palace is by boat. The boats that operate are steamer ships over a century old. I discussed the palace in a previous blog but the boat trip itself also merited its own article.
Departing from the docks near city hall, the journey takes you past smaller suburbs and idyllic islands along the way showing off some of Sweden’s most beautiful scenery.
On the day that I went, the weather was very warm so the journey was very pleasant. If you decide to stay on the outer deck then you will have many great photo opportunities as you pass various types of scenes along the way.
The journey takes an average of 50 minutes and you will be able to take photos of the palace from the boat before you disembark. The price of a round trip ticket is 175 SEK (€18.00) and I think it was definitely worth it.
