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.

Stockholm City Hall Reviews
This is a relatively modern building, which is a little schizophrenic in style. The interior borrows from many European styles, even appearing a little Moorish in places. The tour was perhaps a littl... more »

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.
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.
