One of Stockholm's most popular festivals is going on all this weekend at Nordiska Museet (Museum of Nordic Culture)... the Chocolate Festival! This year should prove to be even more popular than usual as they are celebrating their 10th anniversary.

Three days (October 12th-14th) of chocolate, chocolate and even more chocolate! The festival opens its doors today at 10am to 8pm and then continues this Saturday & Sunday 10am to 6pm. Entrance is 130 SEK for adults, 60 SEK for children 6-18yrs old, and tickets can be purchased before hand online at Ticnet. There will be plenty of entertainment going on... competitions (including Pastry Chef of the Year) for professionals and amateurs, baking/cooking demonstrations and plenty of child-friendly events. Patisseries and chocolate suppliers will be displaying their wares for you to both taste and purchase.

Located on the island of Djurgården, it is pretty easy to get to the museum from the Rival Hotel. There are regular ferries (Djurgården Ferry) taking you to the island from Slussen... which is just a 10 minute walk from the hotel. The ferry ride itself is only 9 minutes!
