The summer pavilion Strampen was drawn by Swedish architect Carl Axel Setterberg and dates back to 1868. The
octagonal building took its current shape in the 1930s and has a long tradition of serving excellent food with a spectacular view. These days, the restaurant can seat up to 300 guests inside and an additional 400 people on the terrace. Over the years the pavilion has had a few facelifts and, as of 2007, it is owned and managed by Robert and Caroline Ekman. The couple has renovated the building but has been careful to stay true to the cultural heritage. “We have tried to recreate the historical feeling of the pavilion,” says Robert Ekman.
