Stockholm City Hall Tours

Stockholm City Hall (Stadshuset) looms over the Kungsholmen waterfront and is one of the capital’s most impressive landmarks, with a redbrick façade and 328-foot (100-meter) tower topped with the Three Crowns of Sweden. Dating back to 1923, the hall contains elaborate ceremonial chambers which are open to visitors via guided tours. 

The Basics
Stockholm City Hall is the masterpiece of architect Ragnar Ostberg and a celebrated example of Swedish National Romanticism. It now houses the city council and municipal council offices, as well as grand ceremonial halls such as the famous Blue Hall, venue of the annual Nobel Prize ceremony and banquet. The Council Chamber is designed to mimic a Viking longship and is decked out with Carl Malmsten furnishings and unique art pieces, while the Golden Hall features elaborate wall mosaics that shimmer with more than 18 million pieces of gold leaf and colored glass.

Whether you want to explore by bus, bike, or segway, most Stockholm city tours include a visit to City Hall along with Old Town (Gamla Stan), the Royal Palace, and other top attractions. It’s also possible to visit on a hop-on, hop-off bus or boat tour to explore City Hall on your own schedule.  

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Stockholm City Hall is a must-see for architecture lovers and first-time visitors to the capital. 
  • Tickets for City Hall tours are available on a first-come, first-served basis. If visiting with a group of more than 10 people, advanced booking is required.
  • The main building is accessible to wheelchairs via a ramp in the central courtyard, however the tower is not accessible. 

How to Get There
City Hall is located on Stockholm's central island of Kungsholmen, just across Riddarholmen and Sodermalm. Buses 3 and 50 stop right in front of City Hall; look for the Stadshuset stop. The closest metro station is Radhuset (the blue line). It takes about eight minutes to walk to City Hall from Central Station and five minutes to walk from the Radhuset stop. 

When to Get There
Tickets for City Hall tours are available year-round. Official tours are limited on Saturday afternoons, as it is a popular day for local weddings and the Oval Room is typically off-limits. Visit early in the day to secure tickets to the City Hall Tower. 

The City Hall Tower (Stadshustornet)
The City Hall Tower is open May through September, and tickets can only be purchased on the day of your visit. To get to the tower, take the elevator to the halfway point at the Tower Museum and then climb a set of steep stairs to the top. Viewing times are strictly regulated, and tickets for the tower often sell out on sunny days.
