Reduced travel time with public transport

From Sunday December 15th, 2019, the bus schedule for SL bus 468 changed. When the traveller now arrives by bus from Slussen, it is no longer necessary to go all the way to Gustavsberg’s Center for the bus change to Artipelag.

Now the connecting bus stop to bus 468 takes place at Värmdö marknad, which is the first stop after bus 474 has reached Värmdö after leaving the motorway. This considerably reduces travel time from Slussen to Artipelag with approx. 15 minutes – the trip is now approx. 35 minutes to compare with previous 50 minutes.

Please note that bus 468 towards Artipelag departs from the opposite side of the road. After disembarking, you need to cross the road on the pedestrian crossing to get to the bus stop.
Timetable for bus 468 is found on SL’s homepage. Please plan your trip in order to match your bus from Slussen to the connecting bus from Värmdö marknad to Artipelag.

Our direct buses will continue to depart as usual with daily departures from Vasagatan 24.

Autumn in the pergola

In our enclosed pergola, located at the entrance facing Baggensfjärden, we have collected a selection of plants that thrive in the surroundings of Artipelag.

Besides just admiring them you can also participate in a competition – what are the plants and where at Artipelag do they grow? At our Information desk you can pick up a reply form and if you have the correct answer you have the chance to win a nice prize. Winners are selected on November 30th, 2019.

Bådan Café and Pâtisserie appointed 2019 Year’s Pâtisserie

Of a total 337 participating cafés, Bådan Café & Pâtisserie was selected Best Pâtisserie in Sweden 2019 by White Guide, the leading restaurant guide in the Nordic countries.

Bådan Café and Pâtisserie is described as follows:

”A café which in an extraordinary way presents a broad selection of pastries, cakes and sandwiches made from the best ingredients as a base – where tradition and innovation weighs high combined with the level of coffee presentations, service, environment and ambiance gives a total experience worth returning to”.

The motivation is:

”To be able to produce pastries in an admirable way that visually holds the same artistic class as the art hall itself, to follow the local seasonal changes and a tasteful reminder of the constantly present archipelago environment, this to many, many hundreds of people, daily. Wow!”

– It is truly fantastic to receive this acknowledgement and the whole pastry team of Artipelag have worked hard to get to this level. Artipelag is a very inspiring workplace and I really feel we stepped up another notch when we started collaborating with the arts department. To each exhibition, we create a new signature pastry with inspiration and starting point in the artist’s works, says Annie Hesselstad, head pastry chef Artipelag.

Coffee praline made of coffee from Kersh

Together with Adel from Kersh coffee roastery, a local roastery in Gustavsberg on Värmdö, our head of pastry, Annie Hesselstad, has produced a handmade praline with a creamy chocolate ganache flavoured with coffee from Kersh.

During a limited period, you can buy the praline in Bådan Café & Pâtisserie and Pizzeria Bitza in Hornstull.

The coffee used in the praline is a sweet coffee produced from a “natural” process meaning that the berry has dried completely with the core of the coffee bean giving the coffee a sweeter character if made properly. The coffee is from El Salvador and the producer is Rodolfo Ruffatti.

A cup of coffee or tea and praline cost SEK 50 at Artipelag.
