Sea Wing

Gustav Horn had the Lake Wing built in 1650 for his family, and it is the oldest standing building on the palace grounds. Later on, Torsten Kreuger connected the wing with the palace via an underground tunnel, for the ladies' convenience. And for sneaking around.

 

Torsten Kreuger often received female guests and, being the ever-so sweet and considerate host that he was, he didn’t want the ladies to get their hair wet on drizzly days. Therefore, he built this underground path, which directly connects Sjöflygeln with the palace. Then again, there are some who might suggest Mr Kreuger secretly used the path himself to pay sneaky visits to his lady friends.

 

The duke and field marshal Gustav Horn, who took over Häringe at a time when the palace was in a terrible state, erected Sjöflygeln for his family to stay in when they visited Sweden. A visiting archaeologist suggested that an underground path could have already been in place when Gustav was in charge since secret paths were more or less a common custom back then. But no proof has been found to support this hypothesis. Nor has proof been found to confirm a sealed ballroom, rumoured to be located underneath the main stairs. Test drills were made to uncover the truth, but they were cancelled due to the risk of damaging supporting walls. Secret ballroom or not, one thing remains certain: the mystique around Häringe lives on.

Gene Gauntier

Go to list
Ever so famous silent film star Gene Gauntier loved visiting her sister, Marguerite Wenner-Gren, at her Swedish palace. This superior room with jacuzzi is dedicated to the charismatic star.

 

 

Not all siblings choose to have close, almost daily contact. However Marguerite Wenner-Gren and her sister, Gene Gautier, were practically inseparable (the reason why their urns are now resting side by side under the natural stone in front of the palace). Marguerite’s beloved older sister was a prominent American silent movie actress who started her career as a fearless stuntwoman (in her first movie part, she was thrown into a roaring river). She became a prominent name in the movie industry both for her acting, as well as for her many celebrated scripts and successful work as a director.

 

Gene had an amazing, notorious life, travelling to movie locations all over the world. She married the equally celebrated movie star Jack Clark in 1912, but the couple separated after only a few short years, in 1918. Gene got along very well with her brother-in-law Axel Wenner-Gren, and it was in part thanks to Gene’s liberal attitude that Axel and Marguerite could be intimate on the boat from America, despite being unmarried.
