About the venue and destination
Stockholm Waterfront Congress Centre is the city’s newest and most versatile large-scale venue. Built on the waters’ edge right in the heart of Stockholm, it offers vast possibilities for experiences out of the ordinary. Whether you are looking for a venue for smaller meetings or planning an event for an audience of 3,000. Whether it’s a conference, an exhibition, a banquet or even sports and music events. The spectacular architecture also features world-class energy solutions, which make the Stockholm Waterfront Congress Centre more than twice as energy efficient EU certified “Green Buildings”.
Stockholm is one of the most beautiful major cities in the world, a mix of modern steel and glass architecture and historical saffron- and terracotta-coloured buildings. In the summer the city casts reflections in the water surrounding the 14 islands on which it is built and in the winter you’ll find it snow covered and dotted with lights.
In 2010 Stockholm was the first capital to be named “European Green Capital”. It’s also a vibrant, modern city, known for producing innovative IT and media businesses, sleek designs, edgy fashion and world-class nightclubs. It offers a cosmopolitan atmosphere with a bustling café and restaurant culture and has one of the highest concentrations of museums and galleries in the world. Yet the city centre is small enough to allow you to take it in on foot.
Beyond the buzzing metropolis of the city centre’s boutiques and restaurants Stockholm is laid out before you in a system of connected islands. South of the Stockholm Waterfront Congress Centre is the charming Gamla Stan (Old Town) and beyond that is Södermalm, a residential oasis with tons of great eateries, bohemian shops and art galleries line the main streets. To the west, just north of the big city boulevards and shopping streets, you’ll find more pockets of restaurants and shops in Kungsholmen.
Surrounding all of this – the 24,000 or so islands that make up the Stockholm archipelago.
Please note that the Beauty through Science Congress, including social events, is open to adults (18 years and older) only.
Children are not allowed to enter, even if accompanied by an adult.
Exceptions: breastfeeding infants.
