In the Middle Ages, Skovshoved was a small fishing village, and every day the local fishwives went to the market on Gammel Strand in Copenhagen to sell their catch. Skovshoved was eventually sought out by more and more summer visitors from the capital who wanted to get out of town and enjoy the fresh sea air and the view over the Sound and, in 1660, Skovshoved Hotel opened its doors.
In the 1890s, the original inn became a hotel, which today is a completely refurbished and reimagined seaside hotel, rated as one of the world’s hippest by Condé Nast Traveler. These days, guests come from all over the world to soak up the hotel's unique, stylish atmosphere and relax in its exclusive and intimate environment. The hotel is close to the scenic deer park, Jægersborg Dyrehave, and only a few steps from the bathing bridge for an invigorating dip in the Sound. Idyllically set, in the middle of North Zealand, yet close to Copenhagen's many experiences and shopping opportunities.
