The Opulent Stockholm City Hall and Changing of the Guards at the Royal Palace


Stockholm City Hall must be the most opulent City Hall in all of Europe!  After seeing photos online of its interior, I knew I had to include it in my tour.  It’s used for wedding ceremonies and the annual Nobel Prize banquet is held here.  The official tour is less than $16 and lasts about 45 minutes.

The view looking out through the leaded glass windows was beautiful…

That’s real gold in them there walls…

At first I was disappointed that there were chairs set up in the space, but then I liked the mathematical beauty of them!

The ceiling and stairs proved to be cool “artsy” shots!

Next, we walked to the Royal Palace to catch the 12:15pm elaborate “Changing of the Guards” ritual…

Tomorrow we’ll visit the “Taste of Stockholm” that we were fortunate enough to attend!

  1. Great pictures! You know, I’ve been living here for all my life (over 50 years) but never been inside the City Hall. I must go there some day. Greetings from Stockholm and I hope you had a wonderful time here!
