The Palace

The old, old palace is really the heart of the property. This is where you hang out all day, where you eat in one of the five dining rooms and where you sip tea in the one of the six parlors. This where jazz blasts through the loudspeakers and where some of our greatest art is hanging. It's the place to be.


Below you will find a detailed list and images of all the dining rooms and parlors at the palace.



The palace was built in 1657, and has had many eccentric owners since. Each owner influenced the property to meet their fancy, usually by investing large sums in outlandish and avant-garde projects. Like for example building Sweden's very first olympic sized outdoor pool, constructing a water slide from the upper floor into the pool, or digging an underground tunnel between buildings to avoid the perils of a rainy day. On the upper floor of the palace, you'll discover a gothic room made out of wooden panels that were smuggled to Sweden from Mary, The Queen of Scots' castle in Scotland. There's also a dungeon where the delinquent were punished in the basement, a golden bathroom upstairs, an ancient and superbly functioning mechanical bowling alley, and a state of the art kitchen that prepares the most delightful Slow Food.

There's hardly a better way to start the day than in a library - we think. So breakfast is prepared right there ever morning, and in the evenings it transforms into a most sophisticated dining room. And if you look up at the ceiling, you'll make an extraordinary artistic discovery...
Sweden was a great power between 1611 and 1718. In 1700 the Nordic War started, it lasted for 21 years and lead to the end of the great power era. During this time the Russians roamed the Swedish east coast and pillaged and destroyed everything that came in their way. Some of the art and artefacts were saved from the Russians as they were taken down and buried or hidden further inland. This was the case with this ceiling, it was taken down from Årsta Church and was hidden for over 200 years until the day when Axel Wenner-Gren bought it on auction and installed it here.
