Stadshuset, Stockholm’s City Hall

Fer Donoso Tours

Built on the island of Kungsholmen, facing Lake Mälaren and bordering Riddarfjärden, The Knights' Bay, Stockholm’s City Hall or Stadshuset in Swedish was designed in the National Romantic style by one of the most famous Swedish architects of the time, Ragnar Östberg.

Its construction began in 1911 and it was inaugurated on June 23, 1923, exactly 400 years after the triumphal arrival of King Gustav Vasa in Stockholm.

Today, Stadshuset is not only one of the most iconic and most visited buildings in Stockholm, but it is also the office of the Stockholm City Council, and it is where every year, on December 10th, on the anniversary of the death of Alfred Nobel, the Nobel Prize Banquet is held in the Blå Hallen or Blue Room, in honor of all Nobel Prize Laureates.

Approximately 1,300 people are invited to the Nobel Banquet, led by the King of Sweden, his Majesty King Carl XVI Gustaf, the Royal Family, the Nobel laureates along with their families and guests.

During the summer months (May to September) the Town Hall Tower is open to the public. The tower is 106 meters high and 365 steps. If you feel up to climbing them you won't be disappointed by the magnificent view of Stockholm.
