Hotel Dalgas is situated in the middle of the Jutland moors in the railway town Brande that of course is the hub of the Universe for those who live there. Years ago, however, Brande was actually known in most of the world for its gable paintings. Many of them are still here and you can enjoy them while taking a walk in the streets. In Brande the two Jutland diagonal railway lines crossed each other back in time, and many of the locomotives of the Danish State Railways were placed in a large engine-shed built in 1913 in Brande. Today the locomotives are gone, but the rustic surroundings still prevail in the large engine-shed which now houses a fantastic culture and conference centre.
The modern family-owned Hotel Dalgas is situated in Brande, and its modern and informal atmosphere appeals to everybody who needs a break from the rush and bustle of everyday life. Since 1981 the hotel has been owned by Marianne and Arne Andersen and during their ownership the hotel has been turned into a totally modern hotel with the facilities needed by the guests of today. The name Dalgas is well chosen, because it was the officer and engineer Enrico Dalgas who pioneered the reclamation of the moors in the later part of the 1800s.
