The Nobel Museum is housed in the former Stock Exchange Building.
Stortorgsbrunnen, an old well, sits in the center of Stortorget, Swedish for “big square.” The well marked the center of Stockholm: from here all distances in the city as well as the distances to other cities were measured.
After visiting the Nobel Museum, we had a hot WHITE chocolate (yes, white chocolate) at Kaffekoppen. The place is tiny. Additional seating is located downstairs in their historical cellar vault from the 1600s.
