Autumn holiday hunt

This year's autumn holiday activity leads visitors through the palace's state rooms, hunting for clues to find King Adolf Fredrik's signature stamp.

In accordance with the Public Health Agency of Sweden’s latest recommendations the palaces in the region of Stockholm will close. It means Drottningholm Palace and the Royal Palace will be cloesd from 30 October until further notice.

Stamp hunt

Prince Gustav (III) usually manages to get up to mischief in the palace, and now he has hidden the signature stamp belonging to his father, King Adolf Fredrik, in one of the palace's rooms. What is a signature stamp? Well, you'll find out…

Children can follow the clues through the palace's grand rooms, eventually leading to the stamp. An instruction sheet is needed in order to complete the activity, and this is available from the Apartments of the Orders of Chivalry (signposted). There is a small reward for everyone who finds the stamp! The activity is also available in English.

The 'Stamp Hunt' activity is available Monday to Friday during the autumn holidays (week 44). Those who take part in this year's autumn holiday activity can also enter a draw to win a bigger prize.

Animal safari in the state rooms

Wild animals are hiding in the large rooms of the palace: on the walls, on the ceilings, on objects and on furniture. Collect an activity sheet from the front desk, and turn a tour of the palace into a journey of discovery. The animals on the sheet can be found in the state rooms, and it's up to you to find them. You can carry out the 'Animal Safari' activity by yourself every day during ordinary opening hours.


To ensure that visitors enjoy a safe visit, we have introduced measures to allow for physical distancing. For example, the number of visitors has been limited and tickets are valid for visits at set times. If possible, please buy your entry ticket in advance. Click on the ticket link for prices.
