About Norsminde

Norsminde is a small summer gem that draws visitors as soon as the weather turns pleasant. The town revolves around the yacht harbor, the historic Norsminde Kro from 1693, and a smaller summer house area. There are no grocery stores or other shops, but there are ample opportunities to enjoy a waterfront meal or a refreshing ice cream. A meal can be savoured at the smokehouse (Fiskehuset) or at one of Norsminde Kro's two restaurants, offering fine dining at Restaurant Près and a more casual atmosphere at Brasseriet. Additionally, taking a stroll along the waterfront is highly recommended.
