Explore and experience old Raahe
See for yourself and experience the life in old Raahe
The Trade House of Lang is a unique historical destination in Raahe, by the Pekka Square. The building has been carefully renovated to bring back to its 19th century glory. Inside, the history has inspired the décor of the café and the restaurant, the boutique hotel, and the shop. The trade house continues the tradition of the merchant house by offering stories of the life and history of the house and the people who have lived in it in the past. The patron Johan Lang, who had the house built, used to be one of the frontline merchants in his time in Finland. At the Trade House and its courtyard, you can explore the life of the house now and back in time with the help of the Matron, the Patron and the Shop Maiden.
We serve coffee and delicious house lunch also for larger groups around the year. In addition to the introduction of the house, the programme can include, for instance, a guided walk or ride in the old Raahe town, a cruise in the Raahe Archipelago, or a visit to a local museum.
The Matron and the Patron with their staff take you to a trip back in time to the year 1820. The visit of Emperor Alexander I of Russia in Raahe took place a year earlier, and the Matron looks back to the visit next door in the Frieman House with great fondness. The dramatic fire of Raahe, the bustling life of Raahe and even gossip are brought to life in the stories the Matron and the Patron will tell you. The evening is spent enjoying the historical food menu and music to suit the era.
We also organise both special dinners on different themes and historical periods and drama-filled parties on different decades of the past history a few times a year. Follow our events calendar or order a special dinner experience for your own group!
