Stockholm City Hall, Stockholm

4.5
#5 of 1,388 in Things to do in Sweden
The site of the annual Nobel Prize banquet, Stockholm City Hall provides a good example of national Romanticism in Swedish architecture. This building has become one of the most famous tourist attractions in the city, and its shape is recognized as a symbol of the metropolis. Before entering the historical building, designed and built of brick by architect Ragnar Östberg, notice the national coat of arms made up of three crowns on the tower. Take a guided tour of the seat of the city's government and see its grand ceremonial halls and artwork displays. Look in the Blue Hall for the largest organ in the country, featuring more than 10,000 pipes. Climb to the top of the iconic tower to take in the views of Stockholm.

  • To enter the building you have to be accompanied by a guide. Most of furniture cant be touched. The architecture was fantastic and lot of stories behind the construction. Pretty interesting
  • Interesting. Curious decoration, nice view over the channels. The main golden saloon it's the most interesting
  • Great views and a great place to take photos along the water. A number of tours start from here. Worth the visit to an old building.
  • Beautiful old building in the city center. Must visit. Also a good place to do wedding photography
  • Really beautiful, old, architectural and great view of the city. Been there for a welcome function, it's amazing. If you are in Stockholm for a couple of days, try to go here. Its in the central Stockholm and very close to the central station. It is well connected by busses.
