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.

Marguerite's Dressing room

Go to list
Marguerite's dressing room is connected to her bedroom. All the kids who visit the palace end up in her dressing room at one point or another, as it's full of dress-up clothes, games and coloring kits. It's the perfect getaway from those tedious adult dinner conversations.
Marguerite owned a fortune in jewellery, and the staff that worked for her testifies that they would always hear her come because of the rattle and jingle jangle from her jewellery. At night it was always locked away in the hidden safe next to the window.

 

The room is decorated with a hand painted border by her good friends Dagmar and Olle Lodén. It depicts the history of fashion worn by icons from each era, from Cleopatra to Josephine Baker. Napoleon and his wife Josephine, Elisabeth I, Gustav V, Marlene Dietrich, Karl Gerhard, Hjalmar Branting, Bertil Malmberg, Greta Garbo, Zarah Leander, Paul von Hinderburg, Charles Lindbergh, Harriet Bosse, August Strindberg, mrs Wenner-Gren herself and a lot of other celebrities are depicted on the board.
