Söderlångvik Glass presents: our own ice cream!

The best time for ice cream is always! Söderlångvik Glass is launched in the summer of 2022 at Söderlångvik Manor and at the Glasspalatset ice cream bar in Helsinki.

You’ll find the Manor’s own special ice cream kiosk in Amos Anderson’s garage, adorned by karyatids. The kiosk is open every day from 11 am-5 pm.

The ice cream bar Glasspalatset is smack in the middle of Helsinki, in Lasipalatsi (“Glass Palace”) of course! It will open after Midsummer, opening hours are weekdays 11-19 and Saturdays 11-18. In Glasspalatset you can also shop other Söderlångvik Manor products such as apple juice and jam.

”For me, this ice cream is about showing my gratitude for the trust Konstsamfundet has given me. I know Konstsamfundet is about art, and art is also the happiness ice cream gives you when enjoying it!” says Maggie Lindholm, head chef at Café Söderlångvik and the mind behind the idea of the Manor’s own apple ice cream.

Söderlångvik Glass is made from our own apples grown in the most beautiful archipelago landscape in the world. Each ice cream is domestically produced. The range of ice creams is mouth-watering – how do you like the sound of an apple mojito sorbet or a mascarpone and raspberry apple ice cream? The flavours are clean, fresh and summery!

The favourite? “Mojito!” say both Lindholm and Paasimäki.

This might just be your best tip to sass up your summer with something truly exceptional – welcome!

Welcome to Art Cabin Alma!

In the Alma art cabin children can draw, colour or paint on stones. The art cabin will open on Thursday, 5th May 2022 and is open during the summer season every day between 11 and 17 (with the exception of Midsummer weekend when both the Museum and restaurant are closed, Fri-Sun 24th-26th June). 

You can take your finished drawings home or you can hang them one the colourful magnetic boards on the walls. You can also take the painted stones home to remember your visit by or you can leave them in the art cabin for others to admire. 

The Alma art cabin is named after Alma who once worked at the manor. The cottage was her home and Alma, among other things, cared for the manor chickens.
