The Rydberg Hotel, located by Gustav Adolf square, was the meeting place for authors and socialists during the early eighteenth century.
Most of the well known Swedish authors were frequent guests of Rydbergs Restaurant.
It was the wealthy merchant Abraham Rydberg of Linköping, Sweden, who made it possible to built this great modern hotel in 1857.
Rydbergs Bar was the center of Stockholm's social scene. Rydbergs closed it's doors in 1914 to make way for a modern bank.
