Spend the night at a historic Sea Captain’s house where ecology, hygge and nature take centre stage.
The charming Danhostel Rømø, housed in an old 18th-century sea captain’s house, has been a hostel since 1948. On arrival, you will be greeted by hosts, Rikke and Niels Hobolt, who will make you feel at home from the start with coffee and tea.
In the main building, you will discover a historic wing with beautiful, original Rømø panels, Dutch tiles and local history, including the visit of the Danish royal couple in 1949. A.P. Møller-MÆRSK supported the construction of the newer buildings which were done in the same style as others in the historic surroundings. Danhostel Rømø lies right next door to nature at the Wadden Sea National Park and offers tranquillity, hygge and community. You get everything you need for a perfect overnight stay on the island of Rømø.
Our focus is on ecology, so your day begins with a delicious Danish breakfast with homemade bread, cakes and local produce. After a fun-filled day, relax on one of our cosy terraces with a cup of coffee and homemade cake. Try some wine or beer, perhaps, when we fire up the grill. If you prefer, use one of our two well-equipped guest kitchens to prepare your meals. Keep an eye out for the wildlife around you, and see, for example, hares and deer. If you arrive in the spring or fall, you can experience thousands of migratory birds at Wadden Sea National Park. Here you are reminded that you are just a small piece in nature's magnificent jigsaw puzzle.
