Stockholm is quite expensive and there is no museum or attraction that is not paid. Apart from walking through the beautiful streets of the city or urban parks there are three activities that I recommend to have an amazing time and enjoyable luxury stay in Stockholm.
1) Attend the changing of the guard in front of the Royal Palace. Every day around 12 is the changing of the guard in the square outside the palace. The ceremony is long and elaborate with variations in ceremonial times depending on the season with music and hymns or parades of horses and riders.
2) Walk through the park Drottingholm. The park of the royal palace of Drottingholm is free for everyone and you can stroll along the paths of the garden between hedges, paths, ponds and fountains as if it was a small miniature of Versailles. In the park are arranged various pavilions and gardens in different styles such as French, Chinese and English. The whole complex of Drottingholm is a UNESCO world heritage site and once in the park it is worth going to visit the palace and especially the baroque theater with original stage machinery of 1700.
3) Visit the house of culture. The Kulturhuset is open and free to the public even if it is frequented by tourists it may be a good time for great entertainment. It is home to a variety of events and a program which is still very much alive and interesting. With an extensive library of movies and music, cinemas, art workshops for children and youth and a digital art gallery, it is a place to visit even just for a coffee or a meal at a fair price in the cafeteria’s last floor with a view on the lively square of Sergels Torg.
