Gentlemen's Wing

Torsten Kreuger erected this building above the palace’s old cellar and laundry room. It was used to house male guests during holidays and after late-night parties. The gentlemen often used the rooms to rest after hunting trips and outlandish cocktail hours, where staff served drinks from silver trays wearing nothing but fancy facemasks.

 

Interior Designer Pontus Djanaieff recreated each of the two suites, junior suite and four deluxe rooms to resemble the quarters of the eccentric personalities who used to visit. The perks: clawfoot bathtubs in each room, poolside location, and Sweden's very first mechanical bowling alley under the same roof.

Paul Fejos

Go to list
Staying over in Paul Fejos's junior suite is like spending a night at the museum. Skeletons, exotic hunting prey and other travel souvenirs fill the movie director and anthropoligst's vivacious room.
Paul Fejos, the Hungarian anthropologist and movie director, was a close friend of Axel Wenner-Gren. Together they took two adventurous expeditions to Peru, meticulously planned here at the palace. Later, with Axel’s money, Paul helped found The Viking Foundation – an institution that, to this day, rewards prominent anthropologists for spreading knowledge about different cultures around the world. Seemingly, Paul and Axel shared more than just an interest in foreign lands and cultures. Inga Arvad, who became Paul’s wife in 1936, is believed to have been a former lover of Axel’s. (It is noted that upon occasion she also flirted with a certain John F. Kennedy.)

 

Mr Fejos, who fought in the First World War, began his notable movie career in Hungary but left the country after a financial fiasco regarding the movie Egri csillagok. After spending time in Vienna and Berlin, Paul ended up in Hollywood, where he invested his life’s savings in an avant-garde movie about suicide. Surprisingly, the movie was a success and soon Paul Fejos was the name on everyone’s lips.

 

An international star-studded career followed, and today Mr Fejos is considered one of the pioneers of sound cinema. However, after several cinematic achievements, Paul decided to change his path to focus on exploring expeditions and archaeological excavations. And within this new vocation, Paul Fejos again achieved renown as an admired and reputable man.
