Visit Stockholm's imposing City Hall -- a magnificent red brick building that was the result of a 12-year effort by the combined elite of Swedish construction workers, sculptors, artists and craftsmen. It is renowned for its architecture, murals and mosaics, and as the site of the Nobel Prize Banquet. Experience the grandeur and spaciousness of the impressive, stately Blue and Golden Halls.
Back on the coach, you will pass through the city center to finally reach Stockholm's Old Town (Gamla Stan), dominated by the Royal Palace. Stroll along the narrow, twisting alleys and cobblestone streets of this living historical monument. Wander with your guide and savor the romantic atmosphere of the buildings dating from the 16th to 19th centuries, with Baroque doorways and regal Coats of Arms. Visit the Stortorget (Great Square) -- the hub of the Old Town on which the former Stock Exchange stands -- now the home to the Swedish Academy.
There are 40 steps to climb at City Hall. Tour is available only on select sailings. This tour is available only to guests whose cruise does not begin or end in Stockholm. City Hall can be closed at short notice for private functions; in that event the tour will be cancelled. Use of an audio headset (included) will enhance your tour experience. Tour order may vary.
