There are 23 newly renovated double rooms in The Vasa Wing, most of which overlook the apple orchard. They are truly 'Scandinavian Cozy', our very own and favorite design concept featuring warm colors, Scandinavian design classics and hand made, all natural beds from Hästens. And stunning photo art in each room, of course.
This wing has been named after one of the very early owners of the property, the first Swedish King Gustav Vasa.
It could easily be assumed that Gustav Vasa wouldn’t be too fond of palaces after his seven-month imprisonment in the Danish palace Kalø, located on the island of Jutland. But in 1525 – after he had defeated Christian the Tyrant and struck down on all resistance – Gustav Vasa laid claim to the palaces at Häringe and Hammersta. He regarded them both as rightfully his, based on kinship with the deceased Sten Sture, the younger. Häringe’s strategic location suited Gustav well, and he ordered a wharf to be built and located his naval forces here.
Gustav Vasa – or Eriksson, which was his name when he was alive (it was not until the 17th century that the use of noble family names became customary) – never actually lived at Häringe. Instead, he allowed Peder Olofsson Hård, a member of the High Council of Sweden, to borrow the palace for life as a gratuity for all his help during important wars and negotiations.
