Upon reaching Old Town, a short walk will take you to Stortorget or the Great Square, where the Nobel Museum is located inside the Old Stock Exchange, an exceptionally beautiful 18th-century building. Here, you'll learn about the formation of the Nobel Prize, the life of its founder Alfred Nobel, and much about the creative endeavors of past Nobel Laureates.

Then, it's on to Stockholm's modern downtown, passing the Concert Hall where the Nobel Prizes are awarded each year. Looking towards the island of Kungsholmen, you'll see the three crowns atop the imposing City Hall by the shores of the Lake Malaren. The building was inaugurated in 1923 and is renowned for its architecture, murals, and mosaics, and for being the site for the annual Nobel Prize banquet. Experience the grandeur and spaciousness of its impressive Blue Hall and Golden Chamber and then enjoy the beautiful view from the garden.

Afterwards, you'll return to the ship passing Heleneborg, once the home and laboratory of Alfred Nobel. Many of his experiments with nitroglycerine were conducted here, including the failed one that killed his younger brother Emil in an explosion.

Please note: Guests must be able to walk approximately one mile in Old Town over uneven and cobblestone streets, approximately 500 yards with 60 steps in the City Hall, and approximately 400 yards and 65 steps in the Concert Hall. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and may not be suitable for those with mobility concerns who are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Weather appropriate clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Please be aware that there might be changes to the sites visited due to special religious events or auditions taking place at the above mentioned venues that are beyond the control of the tour operator.
