Host your own Nobel Prize Dinner in Oslo

In Oslo you can host your own Nobel Peace Prize dinner and serve your selected Nobel menu in the venue of the original banquet.


Hosted on 10 December every year since 1901, the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony takes place in Oslo. For years, the peace prize laureates have stayed in the Nobel suite at the Grand Hotel and the gala banquet has been held in the venerable setting of the hotel’s Mirror Room.

Secret menu

The banquet demands the utmost of the hotel and its staff with lengthy preparations, but its owners are proud to keep the tradition alive. This includes the 'secret menu', something that is kept a mystery until all of the guests are seated.

Host your own Nobel dinner

Invite guests to your own, unforgettable Nobel dinner. The table will be set with the hotel's special Nobel tableware, individual menu cards will be given to guests as a memento and of course your selected Nobel menu will be served. The hotel has Nobel menus dating back more than ten years, offering a wide choice of menus to fit the occasion of your Nobel evening – or perhaps the peace prize laureate you wish to honour.

For parties of more than 80 people, Nobel Dinner is served in the Mirror Room, the actual venue of the prestigious event. For smaller groups, the hotel has a choice of well-suited alternative suites and lounges.

The price of the five-course Nobel menu includes one aperitif (sparkling wine), three glasses of wine (carefully selected to perfectly match the menu), coffee with cognac/liqueur, mineral water, special tableware and service, menu cards and flower decorations.

A dance orchestra is not included in the price, but the hotel would be more than happy to arrange for this alongside any other wishes you may have.

About the Nobel Peace Prize award

In 1897, it became known that Alfred Bernhard Nobel, a scientist and one of Europe’s wealthiest men, had bequeathed most of his substantial estate to a fund. The interest from this was to be awarded as a prize to the person who had made the greatest contribution to humanity during the past year.

Nobel had decided that the peace prize was to be awarded by an independent committee consisting of five members elected by the Norwegian Storting.

The laureate of the year is usually announced in mid-October and the award ceremony itself takes place every year on 10 December, the anniversary of Alfred Nobel’s death.

The Nobel Peace Center presents Alfred Nobel, the peace prize laureates and their work, as well as topics related to war, peace and conflict resolution. Temporary exhibitions change several times a year.
