One of the country's best inns in Sønderjylland, only 30 minutes from the border
Agerskov Kro & Hotel is situated in the middle of South Jutland in the village Agerskov. Agerskov Kro & Hotel has been here as far back as anybody can remember. At any rate, the history of the inn dates back to 1659 in which year Polish mercenaries set fire to the inn although the Poles actually were hired by the Danish king to help Denmark in the eternal war against the Swedes. To this should be added that they dragged along a dreadful decease, namely typhus fever, which spread very quickly and nearly depopulated whole farms and villages in the area between Ribe and Haderslev.
Mercifully, Agerskov Kro lived on and got its first royal license in 1767. There were both an inn, a farm, a provision dealer, a distillery, a brewery and a court here, and people gathered in this place from near and far both for large parties and for a game of cards in a quiet corner of the inn. Today the hosts of the inn are Bodil and Peter Otte, and the several centuries-old buildings of the inn have been modernized with due respect for the original atmosphere.
