Annalan huvila

Annala is an idyllic garden area in Vanhakaupunki run by the Hyötykasviyhdistys association. The heart of the area is the oldest wooden villa in Helsinki, Villa Anneberg, built in 1832.

The villa is owned by the Hyötykasviyhdistys association since 2017 and will one day hopefully be a national center of garden culture in Finland.

The association Annalan huvilan ystävät ry runs a cafe on Sundays in the villa, Cafe Anneberg. Also events.
