The Lake Wing is the oldest of all the buildings; it was constructed to house the Horn family in 1650 while the palace was constructed. This later became the wing where female guests stayed. The rooms are named in honor of the famous ladies who once stayed here.
Greta Garbo even got her own oval room designed especially for her, as she did not like straight angles. You’ll notice, it’s a little worn by now, but we have kept the original design from the 1930’s intact for those of you who would like to spend the night in the room of a legend. Garbo’s single room connects to Elizabeth Tailor’s double room and shares a bathroom downstairs.
The legendary singers Zarah Leander and Josephine Baker each have a suite in the wing, with king size Italian beds. Both have luxurious bathrooms with Jacuzzis, private balcony/patio and 17th century tile ovens in the sitting rooms.
Silent movie star (and Margeruite Wenner-Gren’s sister) Gene Gauntier has a junior suite with a Jacuzzi. From the wing you exit straight into the palace garden or you can use the connecting tunnel to the palace, which Torsten Kreuger installed in order for his lady guests to keep their hair and shoes dry in bad weather.
