join a guided tour!

Follow our multi-lingual guides on a tour that will take you into the public rooms surrounding the auditorium, into the auditorium where the magic of the stage and the splendid decorations will come to life, and end up in the beautiful Déjeuner Salon looking out over the English garden. You will hear the sound of the thunder box and the wind machine or experience an aria and a famous orchestra piece, if there are rehearsals! A visit to Drottningholms Slottsteater will convey impressions of theatre life in the 18th century and give a better understanding of our living cultural heritage.


Before the evening opera performances we offer an extended guided tour of the unique theatre building. The tour starts at 16.30 and lasts approx. 45 minutes. In English and Swedish (you sign up for the language you prefer). Pre-book when you purchase your performance ticket, or buy your ticket in the Theatre Shop.
