The State Bedchamber in 360°

Hedvig Eleonora’s State Bedchamber is one of of Drottningholms Palace's highlights. Experience one of Sweden’s grandest Baroque rooms in 360°.

Influenced by French prototype, the palace was built by architect Nicodemus Tessin the Elder by commission of Queen Hedvig Eleonora.

The splendour of the royal palaces became a way to confirm the power of the monarch. One room that exudes power throughout is Hedvig Eleonora’s State Bedchamber. The entire room is full of symbols of royal power, but there is also a more personal message.

The State Bedchamber can be visited during the palace's regular opening hours, but also with this 360° tour. Click on the image above to start the tour.

Look up! Discover the paintings by Ehrenstrahl in the virtual tour. The Queen commissioned her skilled court painter to depict the history of her marriage and to convey her fear that her son would not survive. In one painting, the goddess of fate measures out his life’s thread. Click on the image to discover more in the virtual tour.
