Danhostel Skanderborg welcomes you in the beautiful beech forest. Spend the night by the shores of Skanderborg Lake in the middle of the Lake-Highlands – one of the most beautiful places to find peace for the soul and body.

Are you a fisher, tourist, course participant or a family on vacation? Then there is a place in the deep, quiet tranquility of the forest, where you will find a large garden and a beach with a bridge stretching into the lake of Skanderborg. The lake is one of the world’s best for fishing, and the shores are child-friendly with shallow water. From here, you enjoy the view to grey herons, kayaks and the 10 red log cabins. Enjoy the peaceful surroundings of Lake-highlands with short distance to city life and attractions for all ages.

Personal welcome and English breakfast in the Officersmessen. The hostel has 16 rooms with room for 124 overnight guests. There is up to four beds in each room, and they all have private bathroom and toilet. The 10 cabins also have their own bath- and toilet facilities, along with private kitchen and a cozy living room. An old, charming wood cabin functions as the main cabin. Here, English breakfast is served – but the best thing about Danhostel Skanderborg is the welcoming. Everybody gets a “good morning”, no matter what. This is one of the owners Egon Petersen’s most important rule of thumb after 27 years as the owner of Danhostel Skanderborg.

A beautiful community place for families, associations, companies and more. Here, we also have three meeting rooms, which can be reserved for meetings or conferences. You, and your company, can also rent out the entire hostel, if privacy and discretion is essential. Of course, you are also welcome with your friends and family. Here, you can fish, canoe or go for a bike ride on the many moutainbike paths around the forest. Danhostel Skanderborg is also in close proximity to Moesgaard Museum (MOMU), Givskud Dyrepark, AQUA in Silkeborg, the rainforest in Randers or the local but large golfing club.

What about spending a couple of nights by the riverbanks of Skanderborg. The red cabins lie beautifully at the edge of the forest with a view of the lake.
