about us

In this historic building from 1880 we serve you classic Swedish home cooked food. We also have coffee, pastries, sandwiches, beer and wine.

Karamellan is located right by the water and Drottningholm Castle. You can get here by bus or boat. The boat pier is just in front of our lovely outdoor dining area.

Drottningholm Castle is an UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is our best preserved royal castle in Sweden, built in the 17th century. The architecture is representative of all European castles from that time.
