Vänhem was originally built in Gamlestaden in Gothenburg, as a summer residence for August Abrahamson and his wife Euphrosyne. In 1873 the house was moved in its entirety to Nääs, and became the focal point for social gatherings when the College of Arts & Crafts was in its heyday.

This house is our popular facility for wedding parties for up to 120-140 gusets. 

Our biggest function rooms, the Orangery and dining room, are in Vänhem. Together they can seat around 200 guests. The orangery is one of this country’s loveliest ballrooms, but can also be used for larger conferences, with theatre style seating.

There are five bedrooms in Vänhem sleeping twelve in total, comprising four double rooms and one room with four sleeping alcoves.



Weddings, concerts, conferences, birthday parties – the possibilities are endless. We have the perfect spaces for all types of gatherings. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with us to see what we can do for you.
