HOTEL HASSELBACKEN

HISTORY

The first restaurant at Hasselbacken was called Dunderhyttan, which opened in the mid-1700s. Back then, it was an establishment with five tables and some twenty chairs.

THE NAME HASSELBACKEN WAS COINED

It wasn’t until the 1760s, that the name “Hasselbacken” was coined, becoming well known in Stockholm’s restaurant circles.

THE GLORY DAYS BEGINS

In 1816, a half-timbered building was built in the finest Gustavian style, which over the years became known as “Gubbhyllan” (literally Old Man’s shelf). It’s glory days began when the well-known confectioner Jacob Wilhelm Davidson opened the doors of “Restaurant Hasselbacken”. The year 1853 was the start of a golden era for the restaurant thanks to good food, Swedish punch songs and singing.

THE BELLMAN STATUE

Speaking of singing, on August 16, 1872, a Bellman statue was erected in the garden and can still be seen today. Alfred Nyström was the name of the sculptor and August Strindberg was his model. That same year, a ferocious fire, lasting eight days, burned the entire building to the ground. Just two years later, a new building rose from the ashes and quickly became the preferred choice of venue for locals of all classes – nobility as well as ordinary people.
