Stadshuset - City Hall Tips (115)

Go on top of the town hall

Go on top of the town hall (Stadshuset). You will get great view over Stockholm from there!

It was 15 SEK to go up, the elevator goes only half way. From there you walk up in circles - no stairs for a change!

Stadshuset, Stockholm's town hall is the place where every year the nobel prize winners are honoured by the king of Sweden. Make sure you're invited ;)

Also make sure to climb the tower as you get nice views from here. Plus its a funny way to climb the tower - no stairs but turns!

City Hall

This city hall of Stockholm is very very special and famous becuase every year overhere the Noble Prize Awarding ceremony is organised. From far distance this Hall looks like an old Church but it is not ;-)

Stockholm Town Hall

Worth a visit to see where the Nobel Prizes (except for the peace prize which is given in Oslo) are given out you have to go on a guided tour (as far as I know)if you wish to go inside.

While you're there be sure to climb the tower for great views of the city & plenty of photo opportunities.

On a day with nice weather you...

On a day with nice weather you MUST go to the city hall 'Stadshuset' and go up the tower (picture)! It's cheap and gives you a nice view of the city. The building itself is truly amazing and well worth a tour.
Another MUST in Stockholm is taking a boat out in the archipelago. There are several sight seeing boats, but if you want to join the natives (on their way to their summer houses) you should go to 'Grand Hotel'. Right outside there is a little stand where you can get information. In summer there are usually several boats waiting to take off. You buy the ticket on the boat (save ticket until you get off the boat!).
Taking the boat out with other citypeople on their way to their summer homes, is more fun than being put on a fast sight seeing boat with other tourists an kick-offs for companies. And it's much cheaper! When you get on the boat, a tip is to find the deck as soon as possible and grab a seat! You can also get a pass and go island hopping for a few days. There are youth hostels on several islands.

The City Hall (including the tower), the Vasa Museum and Skansen are three major MUST SEEs in Stockholm.... Of course, there are other things, but these three are my personal favourite 'tourist-things' that I always show my visiting friends!
The City Hall - a great example of marvellous, very Swedish architecture - is where the Nobel Banquet is held every year.

The Vasa Ship is unique in the world - an authentic warship from the 17:the century - when Sweden was at the top of its power. This is a brillian museum, also in the exibitions displayed around the ship.

Skansen is an out-door museum, with old authentic buildings, homes and culture from all over Sweden. It also is a Zoo with Swedish animals.

Stadshuset or the City Hall is...

Stadshuset or the City Hall is supposedly the most beautiful building in Sweden - according to the Swedish nation anyway.

It's possible to visit it during special hours, but often the building is booked for state banquets and events like the Nobel Dinner every 6th of December.
