Stockholm City Hall (Stadshuset) is an impressive redbrick structure dating from the 1920s. It is situated on Kungsholmen island and the building is famous for hosting the annual Nobel Prize ceremony. The tower is 348 feet (106 metres) high. In the summer, from April to September, the tower itself is open to the public and the view from the top is quite beautiful. At the foot of the tower there is burial monument (cenotaph) dedicted to the founding father of the city of Stockholm - Birger Jarl. The cenotaph features a dazzling gold statue of a reclining Mr B.
