Stockholm considersing itself as a major harbor has one Time Ball tower. It was fully operational from until June 1936, but rebuilt again in 1987. It is controlled now by a long-wave time signal from Mainflingen in Germany (an atom clock) and falls every day at 1 o'clock PM.
Ersta – Sköndal Högskola resides in the building (thank you for giving me access to the tower).
During 1906-1982 it was a building of Stockholm's Naval Academy.
Time Ball tradition is closely inspected by the Stockholm City Hall and school management gets an immediate telephone call if there is some malfunction with the mechanism.
While on the top of the tower I took a hi-res zoomable image of the view.
