A huge and amazing place
Jun 2021
City Hall, a huge structure built of 8,000,000 red bricks. It can be seen from a distance due to its size and the spire on the roof. Inside is a large courtyard. On the ground floor there are 2 halls. The Blue Hall and the Red Hall. In the Blue Hall, a ball was held for the Nobel Prize winners together with the royal family, according to the rules of the ceremony. On the first floor there is a hall with amazing columns and paintings of one of the princes, instead you can get married in a civil wedding, of course for a fee. Next is a large hall with a mural. The walls are lined with 11,000 real gold leaves, the leaves are separated by glass. On one side of the wall - war heroes, kings. In the second wall - scientists, inventors, people who contributed to the development of Sweden.

Worth visiting

They only do guided tours since it's an administration building, the tour last 45 min. You learn a lot about the history of the building and how it became the place that hosts the Nobel banquet. The golden room is very very impressive and worth seeing.

Easy to forget it's only been around for a century
Oct 2020 • Solo
Due to Covid and the time of year, I ended up on a personal visit with the vastly knowledgeable Henriette, and the hour flew by.

Essentially, you only see three rooms, but there's so much to take in with each of them, from their grand scales to the detailed minutiae, you'd struggle to see more.
