Art smart


The hills are alive

On a centuries-old 100-acre estate, Wanås Restaurant Hotel fuses traditional and contemporary Nordic flavour. Each of the 11 airy, minimalist rooms is uniquely designed using local materials and fixtures, and retaining original 18th-century touches. The home-style lobby is designed to encourage gathering, ideally beside the fireplace after a day exploring the grounds. The hotel is surrounded by ancient oaks and rolling greens that are home to both a working farm and a sculpture park with contemporary pieces from world-famous artists. The farm provides much of the fare for the namesake restaurant, which – like the hotel – is an exceptional tribute to the land and the local culture.

Hotel restaurant

In an old stable block opposite the hotel, Wanås Restaurant specialises in seasonal, local ingredients grown in surrounding gardens, foraged in the forests or harvested nearby. This means that berries, mushrooms, carrots and grains likely travelled fewer metres to the plate than most guests cover exploring the sculpture park each day. Dishes are exceptional, but not fussy, and options change constantly as new ingredients are collected. Dinners – which must be booked in advance – are a four-course edible tour of the region’s flavours, and could include dry-aged beef, wild duck, house-baked sourdough and ice cream churned using milk from the farm's dairy.

Hotel bar

Within the restaurant, the bar serves classic cocktails, wines and local beers.

Last orders

Breakfast is available from 8am to 10am; lunch, when served, is available from 11.30am to 3pm; dinner is from 6pm to 10pm. The bar is open from 11am to 4pm, and 6pm to 10pm.

In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside Wanås Restaurant Hotel in Skåne...

It’s hard not to soak up the surroundings at Wanås Restaurant Hotel. The 11-room hotel occupies converted 18th-century barns on a verdant 100-acre woodland plot that was once the border between Sweden and Denmark. Today, it’s a lush, bucolic escape from mod cons, with minimalist spaces designed to help guests check into nature, including no in-room TVs. In a cool contemporary twist, the grounds house the renowned Wanås Konst sculpture park, which is home to dozens of contemporary installations by artists like Yoko Ono, Marina Abramovic and other art-world VIPs. As the name suggests, the food is worth the journey. Set in a barn across from the hotel, the restaurant is a tribute to the region, with dishes that change daily, depending on what’s picked and foraged around the estate. Local ingredients are used wherever possible, including dairy, meat and vegetables from the farm, used to prepare contemporary Swedish dishes, including soft ice cream using the renowned Wanås cream.
