Must see · Observation Deck · Government Building
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.

  • One of the most important visits in all of Stockholm. Both the Blue and Golden halls are without comparison.  more »
  • I went there when I had some time in the morning. It is a quiet place to take a stroll. I did not go inside the building as I did not have much time, but the experience of just admiring the building was amzing. The bell tower also stands out as an amazing work of architecture. A peaceful place. Definitely recommended for a visit.
  • Wasn't expecting to be so amazed at all. Truly advise everyone who is having second thoughts on going to visit city hall even on a shirt visit. It's worth every second of you visit inside and out.
  • It is the most iconic building in Stockholm. Situated right beside the lake, the gorgeous building hosts Nobel prize ceremony. It provides the guided tour of the building. It was informative. The outside of the building is free to access. The park beside the building is nice. You get a lovely view of the city from there.
  • It's a very beautiful old building and it's pretty fun to go up to the top of the tower since you get a beautiful view of the city. If you are interested in the history of Stockholm and like looking at pretty buildings it's definitely a good place to go to.
  • We didn't visit the city hall on the inside, we just enjoyed the park and the serenity it has. It's a nice place to hang out
