Kurhotel Skodsborg

Kurhotel Skodsborg: An Instagram Tour

Only 30 minutes from Copenhagen's city centre in the quiet town of Skodsborg is the Kurhotel Skodsborg, a luxury spa and hotel bordered on one side by sea and and the other by nature. For 115 years Kurhotel Skodsborg has been a place of rejuvenation and restoration for the Copenhagen elite, but these days it's open to everyone. Find out below why it's such a popular getaway for Copenhageners.

Simple Luxury at Kurhotel Skodsborg

Instead of speaking for them, we thought Kurhotel Skodsborg should introduce themselves in their own words. Here's what they had to say: "We welcome you to Kurhotel Skodsborg, an international spa hotel based on simple Nordic traditions. It is our goal to meet even the least of your wishes, so you can relax, recharge and return home with renewed energy."


Idyllic Setting

Kurhotel Skodsborg is only 100 meters from the sea and their often-instagrammed dock is a favourite place for guests to take a swim. The braver guests even take a dip in the colder months! On the other side of the hotel and spa is a nature reserve that's great for peaceful strolls in the forest. 


The Skodborg Legacy

Kurhotel Skodsborg founder Dr. Carl Ottosen founded Kurhotel Skodsborg in 1898 on a solid principle that a healthy life should come from light, air, water, nutrition, exercise and rest, and their theraputic pools like this one embody all of those elements. 


Did we mention they have great food, too? 

Three words: Mouthwatering Icelandic salmon. 


Activity for those who want it 

And of course, Kurhotel Skodsborg has plenty of fitness activities for those who want some exercise built into their stay. In fact, you can choose from 150 fitness group classes each week.


The Royal Story

Kurhotel Skodsborg has a style that mixes modern hygge with classic elegance. King Frederik VII acquired the Skodsborg country estate in 1852, and spent the summers here with his wife, Countess Danner, until his death in 1863. The King presided over official meetings and banquets in Villa Rex, which was recently restored according to the original drawings, so you can experience the villa as it appeared in the 1800s.


Unwinding on a summer's eve

The brasserie's rooftop terrace is a great place to have a snack or drink and end your day at sunset. Or you can head downstairs to the lobby for Lobby Tunes and enjoy the songs of a jazz singer or other enriching live music performances. Either way, you'll end up feeling fresh and relaxed during your time at Kurhotel Skodsborg.
