“Strange architectural combinations”

The Stockholm Concert Hall
Reviewed August 11, 2017

The blue, neoclassical style Stockholm Concert Hall is situated on Hötorget in the heart of Stockholm and it was built especially to house the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra. Apart from being a venue for world-class concerts, it hosts the annual Nobel Prize Award Ceremony and the Polar Music Prizes. Both the inside and the outside represent a strange combination of architectural elements (including chromatic choices) that I could not explain to myself, therefore just an "average" rating from me.

Important for the city as being the place where Nobel prizes are given, before the banquet in the City Hall, therefore worth seeing for yourself. A very short walk from Sergels Torg and T-Centralen underground station, so you can skip changing to the green line to Hötorget if you arrive to TC by red or blue line. Currently partially under renovation. Don't forget to visit the cafe in the basement.

Fascinating to see the location where the Nobel prizes ( not the Peace Prize which is Norway ) are presented to their worthy recipients from around the globe . Beautiful sculpture on the corner and a nice square next door

Majestic theatre that has a connection to the Nobel Awards. We came by on our bus tour. Worth a brief stop....but don't sacrifice time at other locations.

The azure hued building dominates one side of the marvellous Hotorget. Completed in the mid 1920s, in addition to being the venue for National classical music it is famous as the location for the Nobel prize giving every December.

It is gorgeous. Embellishing the front is a wonderful Carl Milles sculpture complex known as Orpheus Well.
