The castle


Dear friends,

We have decided to postpone the reopening of Lejondals Slott until Autumn 2021. 

This was a difficult decision to make, and ultimately a necessary one, given the current guidelines and temporary pandemic law. The health and wellbeing of our employees, guests, and community are our highest priority. 

We look forward welcoming you to Lejondals Slott, soon. You can always contact us by phone or email.

Lejondals Slott is beautifully located on Lake Lejondals, with plenty of opportunities for fishing and swimming. The area and the parks around the castle are very scenic, and the castle with its beautiful brick pink straw color gives reasons for the epithet “fairytale castle”. At Lejondal Castle, every guest can feel warmly cared for and free to stay in all of the castle’s lounges and meeting rooms.

The castle is one of Sweden’s youngest and was completed in 1892, and was erected by the Liberian Louise De Geer (1856-1935). The architect was Professor Isak Classon (1856-1930), who also designed the Hallwyl Palace and the Nordic Museum. The building style is predominantly Wasa style, although one can see the influences of other styles. Louise, born Sparre, adorned her castle very beautifully, and you will find the family arms of the two genera Sparre and De Geer. In 1914 Louise sold the castle, and since then it has had several owners.
