  • 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 a place you should definitely visit when you're in Stockholm. We were there on a Friday afternoon. It was not very crowded, which made it pleasant to enjoy the paintings & co. There was also quite a bit to read, but I expected more. I would recommend anyone going there to take a guided tour to get the most out of it. Last but not least, take a walk through the large park. On a nice day it is very beautiful.
