The City hall of Stockholm is where the city is governed from. All the politicians have their offices here and the meetings where they decide stuff are held here.

The City Hall is also world famous for being the location for the Nobel Prize banquets on Dec 10th each year. All the laureates are celebrated here, except the winner of the Nobel Peace prize, which is awarded by the norwegian Nobel Prize committe and given out in Oslo.

The dinner is held in the so call "Blue Hall" of the city hall. Strangely enough it is red...

I didn't actually go into the Hall itself but instead I went up the tower for the most astonishing views over the city! There's an elevator to about halfway up but even after that it's a fair bit of steps-climbing so you need to be in SOME shape to do it...

In the picture here beside you can see the tower. Unfortunately it's not very visible in the picture but there are the three crowns on top of it. Also please note the flag in front, which has the mark of Stockholm on it.

Address: Hantverkargatan 1
