Travel and tour operators

If you represent a travel or tour operator and have a group who wish to visit City Hall, there are two different options. As City Hall is a political office building, groups must enter with a guided tour. Either you can schedule a tour with an in-house City Hall guide or you can choose a local guide who has permission to guide in the City Hall.

In order to arrange for a tour with an official City Hall guide, you will need to send us a request by e-mail.

Admission and payment

We charge different prices depending on whether a group visits City Hall with a local guide or arranges for one of our in-house guides. One tour leader per group enters for free.

You can pay your tickets for the private tour in our ticket office, preferably by credit card even though we also accept cash in SEK. The payment must be made by one person for the whole group, not individually. It is not possible to pay in advance via bank transfer or credit card.

You may also pay with vouchers, provided that we have previously accepted the type of voucher in question. In order for us to approve a voucher, read our terms and conditions and send us a sample of the voucher before your visit. Please note that we do not print vouchers on-site at City Hall. The guide or tour leader must present the actual paper voucher.
