A walk around Riddarholmen

Standing in the old town looking towards the island of Riddarholmen


Turn to the left and there is the supreme court housed in the Bondeska palace


To the left is the house of Nobility




Walk down that way


The other side of Riddarhuset




And around the other side of Riddarhuset


And then head over to the island of Riddarholmen and the Riddarholm church where a lot of Royals are buried


And have a look around the square of Birger Jarls torg




The Hessensteinska palace


The Sparreska palace in the middle of the picture






The Stenbockska Palace




The Wrangelska palace where the royal family had to live for several years after the Royal castle had burnt down


Move up that way












The Schering Rosehanes palace


Turn around


Birger jarls torn






























End of a walk around Riddarholmen

What's the deal with all the different palaces? And one named after Hessen?

Hessenstein!
Frederick William von Hessenstein gave the name to the house, illegitimate son of Frederick I of Hessen and his swedish misstress Hedvig Taube


The palaces bears the name of the noble families that used to own them or built them.
Nowdays it is mainly housed by different courts.
These palaces were the swedish nobilities private homes in Stockholm, I suppose they probably had castles on the country side too!
