Kungsholmen

Kungsholmen is just west of Norrmalm. The city hall is situated on Kungsholmen, but it stands just next to the city center unlike the rest of Kungsholmen
that has a more residential feeling while Norrmalm has a more urban feeling.

City hall, Stockholms stadshus in Swedish, is Stockholm´s tallest real building. One of
Stockholm´s most famous landmarks, this romanesque building is dating back to 1923.
It is 106m and features a clock tower. This is where the world famous Nobelfesten takes
place. I

When arriving in Stockholm heading for the old town we dropped by and enjoyed the view
of Södermalm at the other side of Riddarfjärden:


The towers visible to the left of the statue and the city hall is Högalidkyrkan.


DN-skrapan, Kungsholmen´s tallest building(82m, 25 floors, built 1964). It is
home of Expressen and Dagens Nyheter(DN), two of Sweden´s largest newspapers.
However, DN has moved out to a lower building.
