When visiting Stockholm, you won’t want to miss the imposing red-brick Stockholm City Hall, recognizable from afar thanks to its tall square tower.

It’s a must-do in Stockholm, as it’s the venue for the annual Nobel Prize banquet, and from its 106-meter-high tower you can enjoy a beautiful view of the Swedish capital.

We’ve provided all the practical information you need to make your visit easier (prices, visiting time, opening days and times, our opinion)….

Stockholm City Hall: Stadshuset

Stockholm City Hall (Stadshuset in Swedish) is located south of the Kungsholmen district. You won’t want to miss its imposing red-brick façade and tall tower.

You can visit certain rooms on a guided tour in English or French (approx. 45 minutes – no individual tours).

At a height of 160 metres, the tower offers a panoramic view of the Swedish capital, and particularly of the Old Town (Gamla Stan).

TheTown Hall is located at the following address: Hantverkargatan 1, Sweden, on the island of Kungsholmen, a Stockholm district we recommend you visit.

Tower prices

Access to the tower is possible from May to September for around €6 (free under 11) – partial access by elevator. This is one activity you won’t be able to do in Stockholm in winter.

What to see during your visit to City Hall?

The Town Hall, built in the early 19th century, is a recent addition. To see it from the inside, you’ll need a ticket for an organized guided tour.

For around 45 minutes, a guide will explain the building’s history in English. You’ll pass through various rooms, including the council chamber. In our opinion, the Golden Hall, site of the annual Nobel Prize banquet, is the most interesting room. The walls are decorated with gilded mosaics that are simply magnificent.

To find out more about the history and winners of the Nobel Prize, we recommend the Nobel Museum in Gamla Stan.

Our opinion

During your visit to the residential district of Kungsholmen, we recommend a closer look at Stockholm’s imposing City Hall.

In our opinion, a visit to the interior of City Hall is not a must on a short stay in Stockholm. As far as the tower is concerned, the view over the Gamla Stan district is really nice, and we found the price affordable.

We have detailed other options (some of them free) for getting panoramic views of Stockholm in our article What to do in Stockholm in 3 days (point number 4) and in our article What to do around Stockholm.

Where to sleep in Stockholm?

For easy access to the main points of interest, we recommend the Norrmalm district (today’s city center) .

Coup de coeur ♥

Hotel Birger Jarl: Noormalm district: the hotel’s location is perfect for visiting central Stockholm on foot. In a beautiful, completely renovated building, our accommodation was spacious with a mini fridge and carefully decorated, excellent value for money where you’ll feel right at home. We would definitely go back. (with breakfast)

We wish you an excellent trip to Stockholm, and one last word of advice: don’t miss its incredible archipelago and its many museums!
