On Tuesday 29 September, The Crown Princess reopened Dalheimers hus in Gothenburg.
The Crown Princess was first given a guided tour of Dalheimers hus. The house is the only one of its kind in Europe - no other place has so many activities and opportunities for people with disabilities gathered under one roof. Dalheimers hus is visited by approximately 1,000 people every day.
The Crown Princess opened Dalheimers hus by cutting the ribbon, which was held by David Lega and Mikael Andersson. During the opening ceremony there was a performance by Klangorkestern, David Lega and Carolina Klüft played a table tennis match and Michael Nilsson, professor of rehab medicine, held a talk on the importance of physical training for a healthy brain.
About Dalheimers hus Dalheimers hus was first opened by The King and Queen in 1976, and over the past year the house has been undergoing refurbishment and extension work.
Some 80 million kronor has been invested in increasing the number of places at the activity centre, extending the short-term accommodation/hotel rooms, expanding the gym by the hot pond, more restaurant places and a bigger library. The house also offers the only short-term accommodation in Sweden with the latest equipment.
