History

Central station of Stockholm, as seen from the outside


The station was built between 1867 and 1871 with Adolf W. Edelsvärd as the architect.Until 1925 the tracks led in to the station but during a renovation 1925-1927 the tracks were moved to the west and the former track hall was converted into a 119 meter long, 28 meter wide and 13 meter high waiting hall. During the renovation the station was extended to the south through the construction of the southern pavilion. Today this part of the station houses a conference facility. Next to the conference facility is the Royal waiting hall where the Royal Family waits when travelling by train.

In 1951 the façade towards Vasagatan was changed and given a more simplified look. In 1958 an underground passage to T-Centralenmarker was opened.
