The inn at the entrance to Kungliga Djurgården in Stockholm, variously named Blå Porten and Lusthusporten had traditions from 1692. It was situated by the gate to the fenced-in royal hunting park, Djurgården. The fence was to protect the stock of hunting animals from wolves, and to keep the deer and moose in place - the public was admitted in the park for a small fee. As king Gustav III had no interest in hunting, the deer stock was moved away from the island of Södra Djurgården, and Djurgården became the pleasure park of all Stockholm.

There were several inns on Djurgården, but Lusthusporten being the main entrance to the park, the inn was the largest. It was named Blå Porten for the gate, which was blue - alternately Lusthusporten for the hunting cottage that had once been in the close vicinity of the gate.

Owners 1806-1869 - all in the family

Pehr Klingberg (1771-1827) and his wife Margareta Brander (1767-1812) became owners of the inn at Lusthusporten in 1806. They had married five-six years earlier and from the time they married they had been in the restaurant business.

  • Pehr Gustaf (1801-1817) - born in Old Town, died at Lusthusporten
  • Carl Fredric (1802-1852) - born in Old Town, was a brewer's apprentice and then a soldier.
  • Johan Wilhelm (1804-1810] - born on Norrmalm, died at Lusthusporten
  • Axel Leonard (1808-1889) - born at Lusthusporten; last owner of the inn

Margareta died in February 1812. In her estate inventory, the inn Lusthusporten with its plantation was evaluated to 8000 riksdaler Banco. There was one black horse, four cows, four swine, nine piglets and two turkeys.[1]

Pehr Klingberg married Anna Gustava Ihrström (1791-1831) (daughter of the head gardener and orangery manager at Ulriksdal manor) in October. They had six children, all born at Lusthusporten, but none continuing in the restaurant business.

Pehr Klingberg died in March 1827. In his estate inventory Lusthusporten is listed with the insurance value of 13 110 riksdaler banco. There were two old horses, two cows, eight turkeys and forty chickens.[2] The increased value reflects the improvement by addition of a new, large building.

Anna Gustava Klingberg married Carl Gustaf de Broen (1794-1845) in October 1829. De Broen was director and part owner of the nearby theatre, Djurgårdsteatern. With the marriage he also became owner of Lusthusporten. They had a single son:

Anna Gustava died in December 1831. Lusthusporten was still insured to the value of 13 110 riksdaler banco, but Anna Gustava only owned a share of 17/39. The inventory lists a pair of grey cart horses, four cows, two sheep, one sow with six piglets, four geese, three turkeys, 40 ducks and 50 chickens.[3]

Carl Gustaf de Broen married Cecilia Moberg (1808-1898) in May 1834. They had two children at Lusthusporten, the third was born in the house Cecilia had inherited in Hedvig Eleonora parish and the last in Hofdesta, Sankt Ilian.

When Carl Gustaf de Broen retired in 1839-1840 and moved to Hofdesta (near Västerås) the inn was taken over by Axel Leonard Klingberg (1808-1889), son of Pehr Klingberg in his first marriage. The circle of marriages was closed.

Axel Leonard Klingberg managed the inn until it was ruined by fire 29 April 1869.
