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.

Stockholm City Segway Tour
A lot of fun riding a Segway. The route was limited in respect of interesting sights. Our guide was new therefore the narrative was somewhat lacking. Would still recommend.

Private Stockholm City Tour by VIP car Vasa and Skansen museum
What a fantastic tour from beginning to end! Georg met us at the airport right on time and gave us a good introduction to Stockholm on the ride into the city, then we picked up Kate and had an absolutely wonderful tour of the city. Kate helped us to skip the line and see the most important areas at the museums we visited, and she guided us through the best photo stops and sights in the main city as well as the old town. Both Kate and Georg were so knowledgeable and friendly, they were perfect ambassadors of their city and I recommend them very highly, especially for first time visitors or those arriving early in the morning from a long flight who need to stay active and engaged to avoid jet lag, as we were!

Stockholm City Kayak Tour
Our kayak experience with Jasper and the team at Stockholm Adventures was really wonderful. They made sure we were prepared for our trip and they led us through sections of Stockholm and gave quite a history of the city and the areas we covered. I would highly recommend this for anyone who has at least a little experience with kayaking and enjoys being on the water. Jasper made our visit to Stockholm all the better.

The Perfect Tour of Stockholm

Private Stockholm City Tour by VIP car Vasa and Skansen museum
This was our first time to Stockholm. We decided on this tour to get a unique view and experience of the city. This is exactly what we got. We saw all the major highlights. The Vasa and Skansen museum were wonderful!!! Our guide was knowledgeable, and our driver was very kind and helpful. The tour and the transport might seem a little expensive to some, but this was a first class tour and worth the investment. The communication on behalf of the tour company was timely and perfect. We could not ask for more.
