Historical stories and experiences from the era of the sailing ships! The Trade House of Lang is a 19th century style café and restaurant, shop and boutique hotel all in one, telling the history of the old trade house by the Pekka Square in Old Raahe.
We are located by the Pekka Square in the old part of Raahe. Both the seaside and town centre with all its services are just two blocks away.
The Trade House of Lang offers unique atmosphere: Stylish, 19th century, historical décor in the house creates an atmosphere, which is something modern hotel chains just aren’t able to offer.
Rooms are all individual and include a comfortable bed and an ensuite shower room with towels and bath products.
Each morning, the kitchen of the Trade House of Lang is full of smell of the freshly baked delicacies! The bakers start their day by baking so that they can offer a wide selection of pastries. The kitchen also prepares lunch from Monday to Friday and on order, they also can create most delicious meals à la carte. Why don’t you try something sweet or savoury while sitting in our atmospheric café? You can also host a private event, party or even a meeting in our premises.
You can find treasures both carried over to Raahe by ships from faraway countries and products made by our skilful local craftsmen. Our product offering is created in the spirit of the 1870 freight bill of the Lang sailing ship, and we import small quantities of special delicacies and other products from the same port towns as the sailing ships of the trade house used to bring!
Our online shop includes some of the most popular products of the Lang Shop. Lang’s own Raahe series products have been inspired by the local Raahe history and nature. Ecological shampoo bars, soaps, and foot bath products by Annika Kukonharju are ethically made in Finland. These products make your skin feel beautiful and give your hair a silky finish – just like in the old times. In the bookshelf, you can find Raahe-themed books, for example, by Kirsti Vähäkangas and Samuli Paulaharju. You can also find other books (in Finnish) about Raahe written by our local authors. Our online shop also offers Lang’s own tea and coffee blends, which are served in the café as well.
The Trade House of Lang is a unique alternative to a hotel chain. Each room tells a story of a person who used to live at the Trade House of Lang a long time ago. For instance, Miss Sofia’s romantic bedroom with its four-poster bed invites you in to have a good night’s sleep. The colourful birds in Sea Captain’s room tell the story of the Captain’s favourite hobby, and there are excellent views over to the historic Pekka Square from Patron Lang’s bedroom. While you are staying with us, you can also visit in these remarkable persons’ interesting past lives.

The Captain’s Sauna is a real 19th century sauna experience in the old town of Raahe. When you step on the historical yard of this sauna you travel back in time back to the 19th century. The log-built sauna is heated with wood. Inside the sauna, the benches are made out of aspen and specially carved by craftsmen for this sauna. Water is carried in buckets to the sauna and ladled out of the bucket using a scoop. You can have 9 persons in the sauna at one time and fit 18 persons around the tables in the sauna lounge to eat and drink afterwards. Surrounded by the gentle steam and heat from the 400-kg sauna stove, all your daily stresses and busyness will surely disappear.
The Trade House of Lang is situated in the centre of Raahe by the Pekka Square and it has café and restaurant and also offers accommodation, and party and meeting services in its historic milieu.
