After a hearty breakfast, see the open-air museum in Wadköping, with its beautiful old buildings, craftspeople and shops. Also visit the 14th-century Örebro Castle and join a guided tour to learn about its remarkable past. After lunch start your drive west. If you are up for it the Nobel Museum in Karlskoga is well worth a visit and don´t miss the 15 meters high Picasso sculpture in Kristinehamn, donated to the city by the artist in 1964.
You will then pass the city of Karlstad, known as the city of sunshine, which lies on the river delta where two of Sweden’s great natural waterways meet; the 500 km long Klara River and the mighty Lake Vänern, with its archipelago of 22,000 islands. Where river meets lake, you can enjoy this unique delta environment on its hiking trails or on a boat trip. Karlstad is also home to Värmland’s Museum, containing the world’s premier exhibition of the Värmland artists, as well as international artists and a fascinating multimedia presentation of the province Värmland’s history. Contine west towards the Norwegian border and Oslo. On the way, make a stop at the Klässbols Linen Mill, which is open to visitors; here you’ll find quality linen goods for sale. Products from Klässbols are used by the Swedish Royal family, by Swedish embassies around the world, and by the hotels that accommodate the Nobel ceremony visitors. Spend the night in Oslo.
