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.

Stone Parlor

Go to list
The Stone Parlor is definitely the most extravagant place in the palace. This is where cocktails are mixed and champagne flows freely. It's where you have Afternoon Tea in front of the fireplace and hang out after dinner.
The largest hall in the palace is named Stensalen, the Stone Parlour. It has got its name from the beautiful lime stone floor from the Swedish island Öland. When the palace was built they put the stone on a layer of sand to make it smooth and even, but after 350 years the sand is not so even any more... Redoing the floor is out of the question though as the sand and stone weighs over 2000 kg, shifting all this weight could potentially destabilize the entire palace.


The portrait of Lord Oliver Cromwell above the fireplace has an interesting story. It was sold by the trustee Birger Strid following the death of Axel Wenner-Gren and thought to be gone forever. The Hartwig family, who lived in the palace in the 70’s, were dedicated to finding and retrieving as many of the lost antiques as they could. One evening the Hartwig family was watching The Persuaders, with roger Moore and Tony Curtis, on TV and saw the portrait in one of the scenes. They immediately called the BBC who sold it back to Häringe Palace.


By the windows is a painting of Gustav Horn who built this palace in 1657. Next to Horn is King Gustav II Adolf, the woman is unknown. The scene is probably taking place in Germany since it was only there the two gentlemen ever met. There is an historical error in the painting that reveals that it is not from the 15th century; kings did not wear the blue ribbon until the age of King Gustav III, i.e. by the end of the 16th century.


Above the doors are motives painted by Flemish artists in the 16th century.
