Visit the City Hall Tower

The City Hall Tower is open during the summer. The tower is 106 meters tall and offers a spectacular panoramic view of central Stockholm.

The climb to the top of the tower consists mainly of stairs and sloped passageways. There is an elevator that takes you halfway up the tower. It is not possible to bring strollers, large bags or other bulky objects into the tower.

The Tower museum is located halfway up the tower and contains drawings and models of different statues and details from the City Hall.

Climbing the tower

The architect of the City Hall, Ragnar Östberg, is rumoured to have walked several of the streets in Stockholm to find the perfect gradient for the sloping passageways that lead to the top of the City Hall Tower.
You have to climb approximately 365 steps to reach the top of the City Hall Tower.
The Tower museum has many models of sculptures and decorations that can be found both in the interior and on the exterior of the City Hall.
The Tower museum has existed since the City Hall was inaugurated in 1923. The architect of the City Hall called it an exhibition of the building’s construction.
