STAD­SHUSET TOWER

Business Traveler (USA) - - LIFESTYLES -

Walk along Kungs­gatan for a few min­utes to reach the Hö­tor­get metro, take the green line to Slussen, and then in­ter­change to a num­ber 3 bus to reach Stad­shuset (City Hall) – the to­tal trip takes about 20 min­utes. The Stad­shuset Tower is the tallest struc­ture in Stock­holm, ris­ing 350 feet. Walk­ing up the stair­cases and nar­row brick wall pas­sages to the top of the tower takes about 15 min­utes. Mid­way, there is a Tower Mu­seum dis­play­ing a col­lec­tion of stat­ues in­tro­duc­ing the rulers of Stock­holm. As you reach the tower’s top, look through the safety bars for a stun­ning 360-de­gree view of the city’s canals and ex­quis­ite ar­chi­tec­ture.You can stay at the top for 15 to 20 min­utes. The tower only opens from May to Septem­ber, in 40-minute in­ter­vals from 9.15 AM to 4:00 PM daily, ac­com­mo­dat­ing up to 30 peo­ple at a time. Back on the ground, the City Hall is sur­rounded by a beau­ti­ful gar­den by the sea­side, with two foun­tains and a huge Dala Horse fig­ure sym­bolic of Swe­den’s hand­i­craft. En­try fee for an adult to the tower is Kr 40 ($5.70), and Kr 90 ($12.80) for City Hall, or free for both with a Stock­holm Card or a Stock­holm à la Carte Card (comes free with reser­va­tion in some ho­tels).Visit in­ter­na­tional.stock­holm.se
