Rudenschöldssalen is perfect for big meetings. The light in this hall, coming from two directions, is fantastic. Three group rooms in direct connection to the hall are available for rent. This is Långholmen’s “penthouse” since the elevator takes you directly up to the conference room.



Magdalena Rudenschiöld, Långholmen’s first political prisoner, was member of the Swedish nobility and a lady-in-waiting who was the centre of attention owing to her beauty and wits. Magdalena fell in love with general Armfelt, a ”reckless” but also an unfortunate passion, because the general conspired against the regency that took over after the murder of Gustav III. Armfelt was exiled and in 1794 Magdalena was sentenced to decapitation for her participation in the Armfet conspiracy.

After a powerful admirer, Duke Charles, Gustav III’s brother, intervened in her defence, Mamsell Rudenschiöld got to keep her head but she was stripped of her status as a noble and lady-in-waiting. The poor Magdalena could not escape the shame of public pillorying at the city square as the customs were back then. She fainted at the pillar of shame. She was brought unconscious to the spinning house at Långholmen and became its first political prisoner.

At the spinning house, as the name suggests, the inmates had to earn their board and lodging through assiduous work at the spinning wheel to supply the great Swedish army with uniforms. Magdalena Carlsdotter, former lady-in-waiting, as she was called back then, never mixed with the spinning house inmates who were mainly prostitutes, female criminals or women who could not earn their daily bread. After a while she was housed in the vicarage on the island with servants and own furniture. The VIP prisoner was spared the spinning house diet of porridge and salt herring. She was served four-course meals by one of the directors of the Board of Commerce (Magdalena’s father had been chairman of the office that was in charge of the spinning house…)

After barely two years, Magdalena was released from prison in 1796. She was sent away to her homestead in Gotland but after a brief quarantine she was allowed to return to the mainland. She ended her dramatic life in 1823 after putting it down in an autobiography.
