About us

Långholmen Hotell & Restaurang AB is a privately owned company that runs a hotel, conference, restaurant and youth hostel business. We are housed in the old, renovated Crown Prison and the accompanying manor house on the island of Långholmen, in the middle of Stockholm. The complex is affiliated both to Svenska Möten and to STF (the Swedish Tourist Association).

How to get here

As the name suggests, Långholmen is a long narrow island lying between Kungsholmen and Södermalm. Västerbron (the West Bridge) stretches over the island and between Södermalm and Långholmen runs the narrow Pålsund. Two bridges lead to Långholmen. When you visit us, cross on Långholmsbron, the second counting from the City.

The company

We who work here hope that you will discover that Långholmen is not just captivating, but an island of unspoilt natural beauty. In our way, we are trying to help preserve the attractive environment by daily applying our environmental programme in our activities. This programme gives us all a better indoor and outdoor environment. We can also recommend our partner hotel Zinkensdamm in Södermalm.

Långholmen's History

As the name suggests, Långholmen is a long and narrow island. In older times, it consisted of lean pastures situated amongst bare rocks. On the island, there are traces of ancient dwellings dating back to the 10th century. In the 19th century, a silver hoard of German coins minted in the 10th century was found here. The island was first mentioned in historical documents in 1435. These medieval documents relate that Sweden’s Council of State held a meeting in Långholmen.

We are Swan labelled

Certifying Långholmen for the Nordic Ecolabel is a conscious choice to work towards a sustainable society, not just in the short term but also in a longer perspective.

Environmental Work

As early as 1990, a group of enthusiasts working at Långholmen got engaged in environmental issues. It was back then when the first environmental group was created.

Carbon offsetting

In 2012, we decided to start compensating for our CO2 emissions caused by heating, electricity, business trips, company vehicles and paper consumption.
