Earth Hour 2024

To mark WWF's global climate campaign, Earth Hour, the floodlighting will be turned off at several of the Royal palaces on Saturday 23 March between 20:30 and 21:30.

Those palaces that have floodlighting – the Royal Palace of Stockholm, Drottningholm Palace, Gripsholm Castle and Ulriksdal Palace – will turn this lighting off during Earth Hour.

At the Royal Palace of Stockholm, the lights will also be turned off in the Outer and Inner Courtyard.

For safety reasons, however, the park lighting and street lighting will not be turned off at Drottningholm Palace and Gripsholm Castle, or on Royal Djurgården.
