Got your royal wave down? Cruise along Stockholm's Lake Mälaren to Drottningholm on Ekerö Island. Hear the highs, lows and royal gossip surrounding Drottningholm Palace, and practice that wave on a walk around what's still the Swedish royal family's residence.
For a glimpse of regal life in the 17th century, the period's best-preserved palace undoubtedly delivers. Several kings and queens have reined at Drottningholm Palace, and the Swedish royal family still make important decisions within its French-inspired walls.
Board your comfy cruise and let your guide regale you with royal tales from Sweden's past. See the sights from the water on scenic Lake Mälaren, and disembark on royal ground for a stroll.
In Drottningholm Palace, find out which royal folk inspired the interior of the state rooms. See the Court Theater and stroll around the surrounding park with its baroque garden, ponds, canals and bridges.
Then when you're full of Swedish history (or maybe just that meatball lunch?), join the other royal subjects for your cruise back to the city.
