Overview

Follow in the footsteps on cultural legend Alfred Nobel on a 2.5-hour walking tour of Sweden’s captivating capital led by an accomplished guide. Listen to fascinating commentary as you explore places associated with the pioneering character; see his place of residence; immerse yourself in the intriguing exhibits of the Nobel museum; and stroll amid the botanical beauty of Djurgarden, a royal park home to many impressive monuments. 
  • Alfred Nobel tour of Stockholm
  • See Nobel-related sites throughout the city
  • Visit the Nobel Museum and see Alfred's former home
  • Pass the concert hall where the Nobel Prize ceremony is held every year
  • Learn interesting facts about Stockholm and the prizes
  • Great tour for history buffs!
Greet your guide at your Stockholm hotel and embark upon a journey that traces the life and work of Alfred Nobel. Venture first to the exclusive location of the Nobel ceremony, an awards night in which pioneering people are recognized and rewarded. Then, admire the fabulous façade of the Konsert Huset (Concert Hall) as you approach the entrance of Djurgarden. 

Stroll through the park at a leisurely pace and listen to your guide recount tales of legend and history. Allow your attention to be directed to the plethora of monuments and historical buildings within the verdant expanse, and soak up the atmosphere of convivial cafes and fun amusement parks. 

Weave your way through the charming streets of Gamla Stan (Old Town) and head inside the Nobel Museum, where an array of historical and informative exhibitions awaits. Absorb panoramic vistas of Stockholm’s cityscape from Fjallgata then visit the house in which Albert Novel lived and practiced his experiments with dynamite. Hear about the tragic accident that killed his younger brother then bid your guide farewell at the end of your enriching exploration.

This tour was very disappointing -no different than an ordinary city tour except more expensive. Also it was suppose to include entry into Nobel museum and it didn't - would not recommend this tour at all. Hardly a mention of Nobel

I signed up for the trip assuming it would be mostly about Alfred Nobel's life in Stockholm. I was in town on a grant to explore Nobel's history. It ended up being a tour of Stockholm that ended at the Nobel Museum. I think Nobel was mentioned 2 other times (when showing us City Hall and when driving by what used to be his labs, but other than that, the tour was mainly just a Stockholm City Tour. I had been sick for 3 of the 5 days I had in Stockholm, so taking this tour on the last day of my visit was OK, given how much I hadn't already done on my own when I was sick. Had I been able to explore on my own, this tour would have been a repeat of what I had already done. I suggest marketing this as a tour that explores Stockholm and ends at the Nobel Museum to be more clear to Nobel history buffs. It would be good for people to take this tour on their very first day in Stockholm to get them oriented and to help them decide what they wanted to do in more detail on their own. The tour guide was knowledgable and he took us to some nice views that we would not have found on our own, so that was great. A few more stops in the 2nd half of the tour would have been helpful to those who get a little carsick or are still a bit jet-lagged. We had several places to get out and walk around in the first hour but then none in the second hour.

We were and are very disappointed as the guide kept on driving on the same road again and again. Never stopped near Noble's house he just drove past and informed that is a private property we could not even get a glimpse of it . This tour title is very misleading. He did not even take us near Concert Hall which is supposed to be place where the Noble prizes are distributed. The people went on Hop on and Hop Off have seen more than what this tour shows. This tour is a mere waste of money. The guide was good but did not serve the purpose. We came all the way from Australia with lots of hopes on this tour. I feel you need to take sufficient steps to make it more vibrant and meaningful

This was more of a tour around the city and then they dropped us of by the Nobel museum but didn't actually get you in the museum nor explained. The tour ended there but we had to pat our museum entrance. We were not taken to the place where the awards were given out.
