As if this coming weekend's Beer and Whisky Festival wasn't enough... there is another sinful festival on the horizon: The Chocolate Festival. This popular festival is celebrating its 10th anniversary and will be held from 14th to 16th of October at the Nordic Museum (Nordiska Museet). Not to be missed if you are a chocolate lover!
There will be lots of activities and things to see during these three days. In the main hall you will find a chocolate marketplace where suppliers and patisseries will display their wares for tasting and purchase. There will be demonstrations, shows and competitions on the stage including a chocolate sculpture competition and the prestigious "Cake Maker of the Year" (on the 14th).
Entrance is 120 SEK for adults and 60 SEK for children between 6 and 18 years of age. Children under 6 come in for free. The Nordiska Museet is located on the island of Djurgården next to the Vasa Museum... to get there from the Rival Hotel, just take the Djurgård ferry from Slussen (a 10 minute walk from the hotel).
