Skanderborg forms a gateway to the lakes and hills of Mid-Jutland – one of the most beautiful areas of Denmark. The town is the oldest merchant town in the area and therefore has a long and interesting history, especially from the times when the king resided here. Over the years, Skanderborg has developed into a modern commercial town, with many retail shops, charming restaurants and cafés and small museums and offers countless activities within the fields of sport and culture. Located close to the Jutland motorway and acting as a railway junction, Skanderborg is also an ideal base for tours to famous attractions. Danhostel Skanderborg probably has the most beautiful location of all the hostels in Denmark, in the middle of a large beech forest by Skanderborg lake, with perhaps the best fishing conditions in the world. Good bathing conditions for children - shallow water by the hostel.
