Welcome to the home of sweden’s greatest patrons and artists of all time.
By the end of the 19th century, Gothenburg was Sweden’s undisputed art capital. This building, the “Palace building” – known back then as the Fürstenberg Palace – was right at the heart of the city’s art scene. This was the home of the art collectors and patrons Pontus and Göthilda Fürstenberg, and the place where they established Sweden’s first private art gallery and opened it to the public. The most prominent artists of the time – including Carl Larsson, Anders Zorn, Bruno Liljefors, Ernst Josephson and Hugo Birger, to name just a few – would gather here to work, celebrate, deliberate and socialise with the Fürstenbergs, fellow artists, royalty and other friends. The building is still steeped in art history
We run today’s Palace in the same spirit, as a place which invites people to meet and encourages creativity and enjoyment. In the restaurant you can enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner or supper, have a drink or take a coffee break. The numerous rooms in the old private residence and gallery provide an ideal setting for conferences, dining, art taster sessions, weddings and just about anything in-between. Welcome to the home of Pontus and Göthilda Fürstenberg.
