Welcome!Gamla Kassan, or The Old Bursary in English, is a unique and well-kept property by the water that was built in 1754 for Mayor Bernhard Oelreich. At the time of construction, Carl Hårleman was drawing the city plan for Landskrona, and most probably, he also drew the plans for this house. The building has been featured in many publications over the years, and has for many years also served as the home for a local Christmas market. Upon having your seat in the courtyard conservatory, old times are remembered and reflected upon naturally, when horses, wagons, and people must have given the property a bustling atmosphere unlike any other place in Landskrona. The cobblestone, the old bakery, the courtyard house, maids and cooks running up and down the stairs, the proximity of the ocean and the continent all create a feeling of being in the very presence of Swedish national history.The beautiful lion yellow color facade, the vaulted ceilings in the cellar, the bursary (see below), and the high, plastered wagon entryway which leads us into the courtyard are all tantalisingly beautiful and pull on your heart string with every step you take.The building was constructed between the years of 1754 and 1757. A few years later, the Swedish state bought the building and it served as the home for General von Strussenfelt, appointed responsible for the development of Landskrona's defense fortifications. Aside from serving as a home for the general and his family, the building also includes an office for the defense administration. Here, the defense administration's bursary was also kept, which gives the building its name.The car entry leads into the stone paved courtyard. A smaller courtyard house in a typical eighteenth century style with two stories complements the rest of the property on the eastern side of the courtyard. In this building there was once a bakery serving bread to the city's full regiment. The large oven is still preserved.The property became, after nearly 200 years, once again privately owned in 1956. Restorations have been made during the later part of the twentieth century for the purpose of capturing the interior's eighteenth century character. Today, The Old Bursary consists of four floors/apartments where the largest one has 13 rooms including a kitchen and 400 square metres. Here, you will have access to drawing rooms in a neat row with freely flowing natural light throughout, and a view of the harbor and the park, Skulpturpark. Many of the rooms have rounded corners and beautiful decorated tile stove fire places from the 1800s. Many of the floors are original or from the 1800s. Entryways and staircases boast lime stone that has been worn down by the years and hand-blown glass from the 1800s. The largest suite also includes a built-in kitchen with an oven from Lacanche and beautiful motif-tiles from the Netherlands. The other two stories are 95, respectively 90 squaremetres big and sport similar original and unique details which all come together to create a unique atmosphere. Between the main building and the courtyard house the interior courtyard invites its guest to linger in an eighteenth century atmosphere. Here you will find a beautiful cobblestoned pathway with limestone rivulets, a glassed-in conservatory, ivy-covered walls, and also a maple tree which lends its shade to lounging visitors. From the courtyard you reach the courtyard house with the larger apartment built between 2006 and 2007. The house includes many storage spaces, as well as a water closet and the old bakery.Cellars with beautiful cross-vaulted ceilings can be used for events housing between 60 and 80 persons. The property has been carefully renovated and restored throughout the centuries and Hårleman's spirit and pleasant details allow one to find beauty and pleasure wherever one happens to look.
