Gothenburg City Hall
The Gothenburg City Hall, also known as the Stock Exchange, is a building in Gothenburg, at the north side of the Gustaf Adolf Square. The building was designed by architect Pehr Johan Ekman and opened on December 1, 1849. Following the consolidation of stock trading to the Stockholm Stock Exchange, the building housed the municipal offices of the City of Gothenburg, and the City Council has, since January 5, 1863, conducted its meetings there.
