See & Experience 19th Century Raahe

Stories and experiences from the tallship´s era! The Trade House of Lang is a 19th-century style café, a restaurant, a shop and a boutique hotel all in one – all telling the history of the old trade house by the Pekka Market Square in the Old Raahe.

Enjoy the Flavours

Café & Shop

Each morning, the kitchen of the Trade House of Lang smells of the freshly baked delicacies! The bakers start their days by baking so that they can offer a wide selection of pastries. The kitchen prepares lunch from Monday to Friday, and on order, they can also create most delicious meals à la carte. Why don’t you try something sweet or savoury while sitting in our atmospheric salon? 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!
