Conference dinner aboard the M/S Riddarholmen
The conference dinner is on Thursday the 15th of June. We will have our conference dinner onboard the M/S Riddarholmen, where we will have a three course dinner while cruising the Stockholm archipelago. M/S Riddarholmen was built in 1916 at Motala Shipyards and renovated in 1990. In 2010 Blid ̈osundsbolaget bought the ship, and she was moved to Skeppsbron in front of the Royal Castle in Stockholm. Please see more information about the cruise by downloading this pdf.
How to find M/S Riddarholmen
The M/S Riddarholmen is located at the quay very close to the royal castle in the Stockholm Old Town. The easiest way to get there is to take the subway to the “Gamla Stan” or “Slussen” stations on the green line and then walk from there or to the station “Kungstr ̈adg ̊arden” on the blue line and walk from there (approximately the same walking distance from all three stations).
