Our story

Fredensborg Store Kro has a long and exciting history behind it ever since its construction at the same time with the big brother Fredensborg castle in 1723. It has had a central place in the Fredensborgs history as the focal point for royal events, luksusopholdssted for citizenship and cultural attraction for all who were interested in English history and architecture. 

It is in many ways a magical place made of the substance dreams are made of, as are all of us very much to heart, and thus also I, the undersigned. 

There is no doubt that the idea of getting the opportunity to take over and drive this historic place, has often occurred to us in our journey through life, especially after our migration to Fredensborg municipality in 1996. At that time our focus was on visionary ideas about how to revolutionize the hotel industry with a completely new hotel concept, which should make it possible for ordinary people, to stay at the best location in the city for the best price.
Small functional rooms – ship cabins on the country the concept was called in the press and the company CABINN is one of the strongest hotel industry in Denmark to this day with 11 hotels spread across the uk.  

It is our intention with the Fredensborg Store Kro, to unite the best features of our gradually folkekendte the hotel CABINN with the many years of experience we have in building construction and accommodation and the unique opportunities offered instead. 

Since the acquisition of Fredensborg Store Kro in 2013, we have brought the magic back to the Inn. We have fully renovated the Inn in stages, and tried to maintain the charm and soul of the place. All of the inn's operational features have been revamped, so that today we can operate a modern business in a historic setting.

To this day holds the Fredensborg Store Kro a popular and well run a la carte Bistro, open for lunch and dinner. There we have 7 different plenary on the premises daily are being used for meeting/conference and selskabsgæster. The growing success of the Inn, and therefore we saw a need for værelsesudvidelse in 2020, which today results in that we have over 100 rooms in 2021.

We wish all the future guests at Fredensborg Store Kro a good stay and hope you will enjoy our Inn as much as we do.
