A NEW LIFE FOR BRINKHALL
Brinkhall manor on the island of Kakskerta in the Turku archipelago – the largest in the Baltic with tens of thousands of islands and islets – is part of Finland’s cultural history. Today, it is owned by the Finnish Cultural Heritage Foundation, whose ambition it is to preserve the manor as an attractive venue for cultural events of various kinds and to share this historical site to the public. In recent years, Brinkhall has become famous as the location of historical film and TV drama in Finland.
Brinkhall offers chamber and symphonic music events, arts and history, guided tours and promenade theatre on the premises. The manor is an attractive venue for celebrations and private parties. In its romantic setting with parks and outbuildings, a banquet hall and rooms, the manor also boasts accommodation.
Brinkhall has a wine of its own, too. In Röölä on the sunny island of Rymättylä just across the legendary Airisto bay, Brinkhall Sparkling – one of the brands entitled to carry the official logo for the centennial anniversary of Finland’s independence – is made from local produce.
Situated on the island of Kakskerta in the archipelago nearest to Turku, Brinkhall is easily accessible by car or local bus transport. Or by boat through the lush inner archipelago – or from the west through the varied and charming Archipelago Sea between Stockholm and Turku. We heartily bid you welcome to experience a true historical manor milieu – maybe for a short stay, maybe to celebrate in the company of good friends – in the banquet hall and rooms of the manor or in some of the historical outbuildings.
COFFEE AND TEA, ARTS AND CULTURE
Kahvila Pehtoorinsiipi, i.e. the Bailiff’s Wing Café, originally served as the home and office of Brinkhall’s steward. In summer 2006, a summer café opened offering fresh home-baked pastries and refreshments, arts and culture and special products named after the estate. The café can be rented for private occasions or, why not, small tea-time planning sessions. A favourite alternative location for artists, the café also hosts minor art exhibitions.

Private occasions such as weddings, bacalaureat parties, PhD dinners and Christmas parties are a speciality of Brinkhall’s.
