Situated in the beech forest, it is explored on foot along winding paths and is equally enchanting for art professionals, families and nature lovers.

Look for works by artists such as Nathalie Djurberg & Hans Berg, Ann Hamilton, Jenny Holzer, Yoko Ono, and Robert Wilson among others. The sculpture park was initiated in 1987 by Marika Wachtmeister who turned it into the non-profit The Wanås Foundation. Since 2011, The Wanås Foundation has been operated under the joint direction of Elisabeth Millqvist and Mattias Givell.

Wanås Restaurant - Farm-to-Table
from the estate.

The spacious restaurant, opened in 2017, is set in a converted 18th century barn with an open kitchen and a large counter where guests and chefs meet in a relaxed way. Guests gather round the large fireplace during chilly nights in the winter, and in the summer-time tables spill out onto the terrace and lawn overlooking the 15th century Wanås Castle and The Art Gallery that is part of the sculpture park. 

Wanås Restaurant is a cultural and culinary destination as well as a place for the soul. It is influenced by its surroundings: the forests teeming with game, mushrooms, berries, and the organic farm that produces milk and meat, as well as vegetables. To serve what is grown, hunted and harvested is the base for the restaurant.

Wanås’ own homemade products – cheeses, cold cuts, preserves and pickled or fermented vegetables are on the table for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert.
