Danhostel Brande

Danhostel Brande is in the centre of Brande, close to the train station and boutiques. Here you will find a modern hostel, where Dina Nielsen and Jess Hansen provide beautiful rooms and bright meeting locations for all guests. Danhostel Brande is particularly popular with families who love nature, and course participants who want to combine education with refreshing walks along Brande River.

Danhostel Brande is in the old Brande Hospital, which was run by DR H. C. Hagedorn, who later founded Novo Nordisk in 1915. It was here that Dr Hagedorn, who had a diabetic father, started his diabetes research. The site is now a Danhostel. It is our aspirations that the buildings can attract guests and generate growth in the town.

Brande, a charming town with inspiring murals and speciality shops, dates back to 800 when farmers used the slash and burn method to cultivate the land. There were only a few farms and a vicarage, yet Brande gained a name that has lasted ever since. A stroll through the town reveals its past, so visit, for example, the beautiful whitewashed Brande Church from about 1175 and imagine the stories that could be told if the old walls could talk.

While in the area, take a trip on the road, Hærvejen, formed by ice 15,000 years ago.  Go on a day trip or two and discover how Jutland’s 250 km long ridge from the German border to Viborg forms a continuous trail system.
