About

This inn is just outside the village of Givskud, home to Givskud Zoo, and is on one of the oldest 'military roads' (quite dry roads that the military could use all year round back in history), running in a north-south direction in central Jutland. In 1759 the innkeeper Klaus Pedersen was visited by 6 German farmers who wanted to spend the night there. They paid 2 potatoes each and one gave him a tip. The last one gave him his pigs; 13 of them, which was of course an unlucky number. He planted the potatoes and soon he was able to supply the area with potatoes, which are called 'Harresø-æbler' (Harresø apples) here. The history of the inn dates back to 1609. In 1820 it became a 'royal privileged' inn and it has four separate buildings. Svinestalden now contains five wonderful rooms. You can also stay in the old post house. You eat in the 'krostuen', which used to be where the innkeeper and his family lived. You can drink a beer in the 'slyngelstuen', which is where previous innkeepers used to drink with their guests - many guests lost both their houses and their farms in card games. The inn now provides family accommodation in well-maintained rooms. You can also eat delicious Danish food in the inn, which has been renovated, but still retains its old charm. Note! The Legoland Park is closed on the following days in 2014: 7-11 April, 3-4 September, 10-11 September, 17-18 September, 24-25 September, 1-2 October and 7-8 October. Legoland opens for the season on 5 April and closes on 2 November 2014.
