If you choose to stay at one of Denmark's more than 100 inns, you will come into close contact with a piece of genuine Danish history. The Danish kroers (inns) date back to the early 1200s, when the Danish King Erik Klipping decreed that a series of inns be established around the country to accommodate him as he travelled his kingdom.
Inns were built to be quite small and were often run by an innkeeper and wife. As a result, inns in Denmark today tend to have a very homely size and feel. Many inns serve food and offer you more than shelter and a full stomach. They are a cosy base from which to set out into the Danish countryside and enjoy outdoor pursuits such as golf, fishing and walking.
