Stockholm City Hall 

From any part of Stockholm that lies south of lake Mälaren, one building dominates the skyline, the City Hall.

The City Hall is the masterwork of the Swedish architect Ragnar Östberg who began to work with it in 1911 and devoted the next 12 years of his life to complete the City Hall. Every room in the  
City Hall has itís own character and originality. The Blue Hall, the largest room in the building, is a manifestation in brickwork, and itís here that the Nobel banquet takes place every 10th of December.  

A reception will be given in the beautiful City Hall by invitation of the city of Stockholm and the Stockholm County Council, where a buffet dinner will be served on Thursday February 11 at 17.30.
