  • Djursholm Castle (Djursholms slott) is a castle in Sweden. Djursholm is located in Danderyd Municipality, within Stockholm urban area. The castle includes building components from the late Middle Ages. It was the main building on the estate Djursholm, which was owned by the House of Banér from 1508-1813. Nils Eskilsson (Banér), who was lord of Djursholm 1508 to 1520, built a new palace at the place where Djursholm Castle remains. Djursholm Castle was the residence of both Privy Councillour Gustaf Banér and his son, Field Marshal Johan Banér. Svante Gustavsson Banér gave the castle its present appearance in the 17th century. By the mid 17th century the castle was its present size. The main hall was fitted at this time, with plaster ceilings, stairs castle was of limestone and oak, and walls hung with art wallpaper full of gilt leather (leather wallpaper) and other materials. In 1891, Djursholms secondary school (Djursholms samskola) was started in the building. Until 1910, Djursholms secondary school operated on the premises. The first inspector of Djursholms samskolas was author Viktor Rydberg. Among the earliest teachers were Erik Axel Karlfeldt and Alice Tegner. Writer Elsa Beskow was an art teacher and her husband, theologian Natanael Beskow served as the headmaster of the school from 1897 to 1909. In the 1890s, the castle was restored in neo-Baroque style. Facade design was simplified by a new restoration from 1959 to 1961. A new entrance with modern suitability to the castle was built on the north side in 2003. Today it serves as the community center (kommunhus) in Danderyd Municipality. (en)
  • Djursholms slott var tidigare huvudbyggnad på godset Djursholm, som 1508–1813 ägdes av ätten Banér. Slottet och dess flyglar fungerar numera som kommunhus i Danderyds kommun där även en festvåning kan hyras av allmänheten för bröllop, middagar, fester och borgerliga vigslar. I slottet ingår byggnadsdelar från senare delen av medeltiden. Vid en ombyggnad under 1600-talets förra hälft fick det sin nuvarande omfattning och form. På 1890-talet restaurerades slottet i barockstil. Fasadutformningen förenklades vid en ny restaurering 1959–1961. En ny entré med modern handikappanpassning tillbyggdes på slottets norra sida år 2003. I fyra salar finns stuckaturtak från 1600-talets senare del. (sv)
