Hantverkargatan 1, Kungsholmen
Stockholm's grand city hall is considered the Swedish capital's most iconic building. This sentiment is understandable given that eight million red bricks were used in its construction, which took a whopping twelve years (1911-1923). The tower feature is close to 350 feet high and offers incredible panoramic views of the city; for the vertigo-prone, the lower levels of the building, decorated with beautiful artworks by Swedish artists, do not disappoint. One of several ceremonial halls and political assembly rooms, The Golden Hall (also home of the annual Nobel Peace Prize banquet), is this building's most beautiful space, with walls covered in mosaic murals by artist Einar Forseth depicting the city's best-loved landmarks.

Grandpa has a robust online business, so it's—blessedly—very easy to shop their selection from home, but there's no substitute for seeing and trying on in their Stockholm boutiques. While they mostly stock Swedish brands, you'll also find familiar names, like Levi's and Adidas, all at a refreshingly approachable price point.
