The history of Lilla Hasselbacken

Across the road from open-air museum Skansen, lies Lilla Hasselbacken, a classic restaurant and café that first opened its doors in 1866. In the green house it is easy to feel at home and the premises offer nostalgic photographs and paintings that recall past times. The central, yet calm, location on Royal Djurgården makes Lilla Hasselbacken a popular choice whether you want Swedish fika, lunch, dinner or just a drink.

Lilla Hasselbacken moved to the green building on Djurgårdsslätten 78, in order to welcome the 1897 General Art and Industrial Exposition of Stockholm. Its original location was not on Djurgårdsslätten as it is today, but a couple of hundred meters away on Långa gatan 9. At the time, Lilla Hasselbacken was a favourite among variety and circus artists working at Cirkus. The artist family Orlando being among the regulars, during their many guest performances in Stockholm.

The establishment has since taken many shapes and has functioned both as an inn, and up until the 1980s as a café. After a fire in 1960, the building was restored in its original Oscarian style and the characteristic ornamental veranda was added to the facade once more. Since 1981, Lilla Hasselbacken has been run as a restaurant and café and is an ever-popular oasis on Djurgården.
