Looking for a weekend away in a unique and intimate setting? Then try a few nights in one of Denmark's historic country inns (kroer). Denmark has over 100 inns with a royal privilege; a special distinction going back more than 700 years. In 1286, King Erik Klipping was weary of looking for lodgings when he travelled Denmark. By royal decree, he ordered that inns with food and lodgings fit for a king be established every mile around Denmark.
