GREAT DINING HALL

Over the centuries, the grandiose main dining room has been the setting of all sorts of gatherings. Some very decadent ones too, if we may add.

GREAT DINING HALL

Stora Matsalen, Häringe Slott - middag

The magnificent dining hall cabinet is designed by architect Ragnar Östberg; the man who designed Stockholm City hall. Torsten Kreuger placed the order and six German carpenters built it in this room in 1929, and while they were here they also painted the ceiling beams with gold. On the doors previous owners are portrayed: Gustav Vasa, Viking Sote, Gustav Horn and Kreuger himself among others. The grid is decorated with animals that were found on the property, though we doubt there have ever been any bears on the peninsula. The cabinet was used for displaying precious Meissen and Dresden china.
 
On one of the sides you will find Sweden’s first refrigerator where Kreuger stored night snacks and beer. The cabinet weighs over 1000 kg and cannot be taken out of the room. It was the only piece of furniture left in the palace when Olle Hartwig bought the palace on an executive auction in 1974 for 1.7 million SEK.
