THE DUNGEON

The infamous Swedish officer Jacob Johan Anckarström was arrested in our vaulted cellar, erstwhile Dungeon, 1792. The venue remains as it was a Jacob Johan Anckarström's time, in one of our cosy booths he was arrested before he was executed. One can perceive that the Cafe at one time have been a Dungeon.

OUR VAULTS

It is a transformative experience to sit under the vaults from 14th century. The walls are adorned with many interesting objects since ancient times in memory. There are also many cosy and exciting places.

The Cafe has also been used as a monastery until Gustav Vasa's time, later came to the monastery and were used as detention.
