Short distance to sea and wellness
One of the really nice and quite unique things about Gilleleje Badehotel is that you are both close to the beach and the sea, but also the place's own bathing department (especially if you do not like to jump in the Kattegat ...).
All guests have access to the bathing area, which has a sauna, steam room and the possibility to book wellness treatments.
Gilbjergstien, Kierkegaard and beautiful scenery
Part of what is often highlighted when visiting Gilleleje Badehotel is the breathtaking scenery and views. Enjoy it from the hotel's 3rd floor, where you get a very special view or as you walk along Gilbjergstien, the 2.7 km long hiking and biking trail that runs between Gilleleje town and Gilbjerghoved. A walk to the city by foot through the nature reserve is also a popular activity for hotel guests.
Not far from the bathing hotel you will find Kierkegaard stone, erected in memory of Denmark's famous philosopher, Søren Kierkegaard.
In the time around 1835 he often sat here at Gilbjerg head and philosophized. That's why Kierkegaard is also referred to as Gilleleje's first tourist.
At the stone that stands right where Kierkegaard often sat, there is a bench where you can make a stop yourself and philosophize for the spectacular views of the Kattegat.
After a quick hike into town and a philosophical break at Kierkegaard's rock, you can take a well-deserved break and enjoy a cup of coffee in the baths' beautiful living rooms:

Welcoming staff, nice simple rooms, delicious breakfast buffet, and excellent 3 course dinner.
Nice bath area, with private Jacuzzi and delicious Turkish steam bath. Lovely nature. Definitely worth a visit
