Restaurant Walhalla was built into the fortress as Helsinki prepared itself for the Olympic Games of 1952. The caponieres Delwig and Boije were remade into a restaurant under the supervision of architect Aulis Blomstedt. The name of the restaurant is inspired by the Walhalla secret society that in the 1780’s conspired against the Swedish king Gustav III. The name of the secret society, Walhalla, was taken as was trendy in those days, from Scandinavian mythology, where it is the place in the after world where heroes and warriors enjoyed an eternal feast.
