The Chinese Pavilion

Visit the unique Chinese Pavilion on the Drottningholm Palace grounds. King Adolf Fredrik built the pavilion for Queen Lovisa Ulrika’s birthday in the 1750s.

The court lived the country life here during the summer days of the Age of Liberty. The Chinese Pavilion has one of Europe’s best examples of rococo furnishings with chinoiserie, painting a picture of relations between Asia and Europe 300 years ago. Drottningholm with the Chinese Pavilion is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Nothing extravagant

A Rococo interpretation of Chinese architecture and decor. Beautiful old Chinese and Japanese artifacts on display. Coolest object I saw was Queen Lovisa Ulrika's old toilet upstairs.
