Description

The history of Bov Kro is also the history of the ancient Cattle Road Hærvejen down through Jutland from Viborg to Slesvig. When the cattle drovers in older days followed the Cattle Road and came with their large herds of cattle down to the markets in Holstein, they needed a rest. Already in 1566, Bov Kro got a royal license – as one of the very first inns in Denmark. This meant that the inn owner had to offer an overnight stay for the travellers, and in return, he was granted a royal monopoly of producing aquavit and brewing beer.

Today the bellowing of the oxen has ceased a long time ago, but the South Jutland hospitality has remained in Bov Kro. After a number of rebuildings and extensions, the present inn combines the historical atmosphere with modern conveniences in a perfect way.

The good old traditions are still upheld in the restaurant of the inn, where it is possible to enjoy a good inn meal at a reasonable price and naturally well-made open sandwiches – for instance a slice of rye bread with old cheese and jelly. But at the same time, the skilled chef has created an exciting menu card with emphasis on fresh ingredients and good taste experiences. On this menu card, you will for instance find singed deer fillets with the vegetables of the season and steamed cod necks on root crop salad with mustard sauce made from mustard according to a mediaeval recipe. If you would rather try the Danish inn plate, you have the choice between two different, but very well tasting symphonies of fish, shellfish, poultry, meat and cheese.

Traditional and new Nordic gastronomic experiences

Bov Kro is situated only a few kilometres from the Danish-German border and is therefore a fine starting point for a tour in the old border country, including visits to Dybbøl Mill, Gråsten Castle or Sønderborg Castle. It is only a few minutes by car to Flensburg, and the many border shops are almost just around the corner. If you feel like a tour on foot, it is possible to follow the Gendarme Trail along Flensburg Fjord, and for the guests who are interested in history there is only 3 km to the Frøslev Camp, which was built by the German occupation power during World War II. The experience park Danfoss Universe on Als is also within reach.

Bov Kro has 17 recently renovated rooms with private bath/toilet and flat-screen TV. The cosy rooms of the inn are well suited for both small and large parties, for instance in the garden room or in the room with an open fireplace.
