For more than a century, the Royal Stables have been located at Väpnargatan 1 in the centre of Stockholm. The main duty of the Royal Stables is planning and providing transport for the Royal Family, both by car and horse-drawn carriages. Horses and carriages are used for cermonial and official occations such as incoming state visits, State Opening of Parliament, formal audiences at which the King receives new ambassadors, and municipal visits. The Royal Stables trace their roots back to the time of King Gustav Vasa, making them a significant part of our cultural heritage in terms of classic art of riding and driving. The Royal Stables are also responsible for administering, developing and showing this heritage to the public. Visitors are welcome all year round for guided tours.

I love horses and this opportunity presented itself after we had toured three days in Stockholm. An English tour started at 1:00 and we were two of 10 people in attendance. We saw the bridle areas, horse stalls and the royal carriages and old car....More

The Royal Mews is impossible to recognize when you are walking by. It is a huge multistoried brick building behind the National Theatre in the middle of downtown. The tour takes you right into the stables where you get to meet the King's carriage horses...More
