City Hall

Its two tall red-brick towers are beacons for boats coming into the fjord. Highly functional in style, it has a a modern decor in homage to the nation's history through its daily life. It is here in the City Hall salons that every 10 December, the anniversary of Alfred Nobel's death (1833-1896), that the Nobel Peace Prize is awarded (the other Nobels are given in Stockholm, Nobel's country, by the Swedish Academy).
