History

When Knut Fredrik Ljunglöf (1833-1920) took over his father's tobacco business in 1860 the property was valued to 850 000 old Swedish crowns. At the end of the 19th century, tobacco and wet snuff (Swedish snuff characteristically has a high degree of moisture) were manufactured by his firm. His success resulted in his concern becoming one of Sweden's largest snuff and the Europe second largest tobacco business. Like many of the rich and well-to-do people, Ljunglöf left the city during the summer months. Since he already owned much of the western suburbs of Stockholm, he chose to erect a large villa there, on the shores of Lake Mälaren. Later on the villa came to be known as "slottet" ("the palace"). This colonial Portuguese-Spanish style mansion with natural stone ornamentation was finished in 1893 having taken four years to complete. Surrounding the mansion is a beautiful garden with fountains and trees such as cypress, "blood beach" and silver fir.

Today

The home of the Ljunglöf family, Ljunglöfska Slottet has been preserved with gorgeous interior reminiscent of those times. Best preserved is the ground floor interior, which features the salons and a magnificent gilt leather clad dining room. The stuccowork both in the vestibule and salon is also very impressive. A lovely rounded staircase leading to the second floor features wood panelling and stained glass windows. Upstairs, the private family rooms have been transformed into facilities which can be used for dinners, private parties or other events.
