Drottningholm, literally "Queen's Islet", is a locality situated in Ekerö Municipality, Stockholm County, Sweden, with 398 inhabitants in 2010.It is situated on the island Lovön in lake Mälaren on the outskirts of Stockholm. Drottningholm Palace, the residence of the Swedish Royal Family since 1981, is located here. The village was planned and built in the mid 18th century for the people working at the palace. It is a good example of how a Swedish village would have looked like in the 18th and 19th centuries, containing many picturesque houses and villas.Drottningholm is accessible with public transport by taking the metro to Brommaplan, then an Ekerö-bound SL bus.Drottningholm lent its name to the S/S Drottningholm, later used as a mercy ship during World War II used for the repatriation of diplomats, civilians and prisoners of war between Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States. Returned British soldiers on board, not knowing the meaning of the Swedish name, rendered it as "Trotting Home".Our Sweden online vacation planner allows you to schedule your trip to Drottningholm, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.
