Le Cercle Suédois

Just a stone's throw from Place de la Concorde in the heart of Paris, the Cercle Suédois welcomes us for our meetings and events in its lounges with a breathtaking view of the Jardin des Tuileries.

Founded in 1891, the "Svenska Klubben i Paris" is the oldest Swedish Cercle abroad. Among its first members was Alfred Nobel, Stockholm-born chemist and founder of the eponymous prize.

Alfred Nobel leaves a legacy of 31.5 million Swedish crowns, estimated at 180 million euros. This fortune came from his invention: dynamite.

In his last will and testament, written on November 27 1895, Alfred Nobel requested the creation of an institution that would be responsible for awarding prizes each year to people who had rendered great services to humanity, enabling progress in the field of knowledge and culture.

It's up to Cercle Suédois that he wrote this will, on his personal desk, which is still preciously kept there, in one of the salons of the Cercle, which has since been named after him.
