    In the near future I will be visiting Denmark, Sweden & Norway. It is a coach tour with limited flexibility, but I will have a few days, each, in Copenhagen, Stockholm, Bergen and Oslo as well as seeing places in between. Do any members have suggestions of things to see (horological), or are there members in any of these places whom I might be able to meet?

    Thanks for comment.

    Jerry, by the spookiest coincidence I happened to read this thread just after yours, and if you look at post #2 you will see that Ethan has visited Stockholm! He may not read this forum, so you might like to PM him :)

    Marty, Jerry and I have already spoken. I've been to Scandinavia three times, but only once after I became a watch collector. I saw nothing of horological interest on any of those trips,

    Hi Jerry,

    Not horological I'm afraid, but when you're in Oslo, try and get across to the Viking Ships Museum on the Bygdøy peninsula, it's most impressive.

    Regards,

    Graham

    Jerry, you might check with some of the members who have traveled with the Educational Travel Chapter 179. Contact information is in the chapter list of the Mart & Highlights. I believe they visited the Scandinavian countries a couple of years ago.

    Have fun!

    Here's a link that might give you some ideas.
