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.

  • I went to the tower to climb during the summer only. Climb to the sixth floor in the elevator, in the walk from there to the Summit. I think one of the highest point in Stockholm. Statue on the way to the top of the tower had been scheduled installation as well as exhibits and the points score.

  • The one of Stockholm's fascinating and impressive building is the Stadshuset or Stockholm City Hall. I visited with a public guided tour with stockholm card that free of charge. There are many halls in the building but the famous is the Golden Hall and the Blue Hall. The Golden Hall is dominated by the Queen of Lake Malaren on the northern wall with represents Stockholm being honoured by the East and the West. My guide explained the meaning of the wall picture that Sweden is like a mother that took care the other countries like their children.
  • The Golden Hall is breathtaking! Also, very nice chilling place in the courtyard and the small garden. Definitely the place for a fika!
  • Was almost going to give this a miss but am so glad we didn't! We came just as the sun was setting (i.e. golden hour) and the views were amazing. As spring was encroaching it was great to just sit along the promenade and enjoy the spectacular views and the peace. Pack a picnic when the sun's out!
  • Come here to see one of the most seen objects of Stockholm's skyline. It's not just a historical place, and it's not only where the Nobel Prize dinner is held, but it also has a cute little park with a really nice view of Stockholm
  • If you have time left, come here. Even if you're just going to take pictures from the city it's totally worth it
