#4 of 2,976 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.

  • 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.
  • Best place to visit in Stockholm. Climate and scenery is good during summer and autumn. Many tourists and sometime marriage, photo shoots will be going on as you visit. Has good view if lake and city from here. Can be a place to visit and take some good breeze and rest. Have place around sit and rest around.
  • Very beautiful, iconic building here in Stockholm. I wasn’t fortunate to go inside as it was closed. From the pictures, it looks very beautiful inside and outside, worth checking out to learn history of Stockholm.
  • Grand building used to host the Nobel banquet among other major events. You have to do a guided tour - there is no self guided option - check the website for timings because they vary by season. There is also a tower you can tour by yourself. However, you need a separate ticket for a visit at a specific time. Tip - arrive about 15-20 minutes before your City hall guided tour is scheduled to start, purchase a ticket for your guided tour of city hall first and head over to the tower and purchase a ticket for the tower tour before you start the guided tour. This will ensure you are able to visit the tower right after the guided tour ends. The blue hall (actually mostly brick red) is really huge and elegant. The gold hall steals the show - it is really unique and beautifully done. The council chamber is also nice. The gardens are small but nice and the courtyard is also pretty. The tower offers sweeping views of Stockholm and its surrounding waters. Note that touring the tower does involve climbing a lot of stairs as well as walking up slopes (there is an elevator but it only goes up halfway). Anyone with a health condition that prevents them from participating in strenuous activity should avoid the tower. Allow about 2 hours for a visit.
  • Take some time to explore this place, as it’s absolutely stunning, with views from the river, and even more stunning views of the city. There are plenty of places to take pictures from, each pointing towards different parts of the city. This open space can get quite busy at times, so make sure you keep a good eye on your belongings.
