About the City Hall
The City Hall hosts a large variety of activities and is the seat of the City Council of Stockholm. The Blue and Golden Halls, among the world’s finest banquet premises, are what people most frequently associate with City Hall. Naturally the highlight of every year is the Nobel Banquet held in December (picture above).

Student Party Tuesday
The student party on Tuesday evening will be held at KTH – the Royal Institute of Technology – in the student union house.

Congress Banquet Thursday
The ICAS 2022 Congress Banquet will be held at the Vasa museum, which is a magnificent setting for a banquet with dinner tables set up under the prow of the old ship. A truly unique experience – leaving you with everlasting memories. A guided tour of the Vasa and the exhibitions is included.

About the Vasa Museum
In 1961, the Vasa was raised from the depths of Stockholm harbour where she had lain for 333 years. Now housed in an award-winning museum, seeing this Royal flagship up close is a never-to-be-forgotten experience. Vasa is a real treasure from the 17th century that offers us a rich history, from the work at the shipyard to life on board a warship. This is the most visited museum in Sweden. Location: 10-15 minutes by public transport from the Central Station.
