Lejondal Castle's History

Lejondal Castle is one of the youngest castles in Sweden. Completed in 1892, it was built by Baroness Louise de Geer (1856–1935). The architect was Professor Isak Classon (1856–1930), who also designed Hallwyl Palace and Nordiska Museet. The architectural style is predominantly Wasa, although the influence of other styles is apparent. Louise De Geer, née Sparre, decorated her castle beautifully, and you will find the coats of arms of the two families: Sparre and De Geer. Louise sold the castle in 1914, and it has passed through the hands of several owners since then.
