Stockholm City Hall, Stockholm

4.6
#5 of 2,560 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.

  • This is an amazing building with so much history. You can not get in without a tour. The tour guide was Informative and would highly recommend it. This is where the noble prize banquet is held. I also enjoyed the gold room and saw some interesting rooms. There is also great views if you step outside of all of Stockholm.
  • Definitely recommend this! Even though we couldn't go up in the tower (it opens May 1st), the tour was still worth it. There are beautiful ballrooms and halls that need to be seen in person. Pictures don't really do it justice. And our tour guide was great!
  • An unexpectedly interesting tour of city hall with information about its history, construction and meaning behind various design choices. Each room is very different which makes for a highly unusual tour of a government building because it doesn't feel like one. I would strongly recommend a visit and share what your favourite room is.
  • It is a fantastic place. You will see the place of dinner ceremony of noble price. And also dancing hall (the dance after dinner party)
  • Definitely worth visiting this place - it was fantastic to go on the guided tour and hear about the Nobel prize banquet (which is held here). Our tour guide was superb on his descriptions and we could really imagine being there on the night.
