Hotel Fårup is possibly the coolest accommodation for children - at least in North Jutland.

The 4-star hotel is located in the middle of “Denmark's funniest forest” and is in a completed forest theme with full focus on fun for the kids. Access to the park is included in the stay (and you have access 30 min before opening) and then the restaurant has bronze in the Organic Food Label (30-60% ecology). Perhaps this is also why the hotel in 2019 was named the 4th best hotel in all of Denmark.

The history

For many northern Jews, Fårup Sommerland is synonymous with summer and childhood memories.

The park opened for the first time in 1975 and is thus Scandinavia's first summer country.

Back then, the rides consisted primarily of trampolines, bouncy castles, horses and rowboats. The entrance cost only 4 years, and then the kids could otherwise just frolic all day.

It was a concept that the Danes could relate to, and it soon became a tradition to go on a family trip in the North Jutland summer country.

Today, the park has grown considerably and occupies a full 90 acres, equivalent to 55 football fields!

The park is also known for their academy, which ensures new employees a thorough training in service.
