Activities at the Hotel
Bespoke Walking and Running Routes
Is the freedom to incorporate nature into your daily exercise high on your list of priorities? Then join us on a walking/running route and explore the hotel’s nature surroundings. We’ve created three different digital running routes and added them to the RunGo app, which uses turn-by-turn navigation to show you which route to run, the remaining distance and which roads or paths you should take. Just like a car’s GPS system.
The shorter three-kilometre route is also recommended as a walk-and-talk route for a healthy break during a meeting or seminar. RunGo is free and available for iOS and Android – for both smartphones and Apple Watch.
Head outdoors and experience the beautiful landscape in and around Middelfart, or cycle into Middelfart for a stroll on its 3 km-long pedestrian street. You can also enjoy an ice cream at the harbour.
Board games are more popular than ever nowadays and everyone can take part. We have a varied selection of board games that you are more than welcome to borrow. Just ask at reception.

Bridge walking takes place at an altitude of 60 metres and offers a view of the Little Belt. You can travel to Sydney or to the Little Belt. In both places, you have the chance to walk on top of a bridge. Experience the height. The butterflies in your stomach. The spectacular and unobstructed views. Enjoy the water, the ships, the view of land, the wind and the weather. The faint shaking of the bridge as a train crosses it.
Whale Watching and Other Boat Trips on the Little Belt
The Little Belt is one of the most whale-rich waters in the world. This is the place to go if you want to see one of the world’s smallest whales, the Harbour Porpoise, up close. We’ll set sail for as many experiences and stories as possible. We occasionally see seals, birdlife and even white-tailed eagles.
The Psychiatric Museum is located in one of the former patient buildings at Middelfart Mental Hospital, which was in operation from 1888 to 1999. The exhibition tells of the everyday life and conditions for both patients and employees and provides an insight into the treatment of mental illness in Denmark in the 19th and 20th centuries.
Nature Experiences Near the Hotel
Hop into your swimwear and take a dip in the Little Belt just outside the hotel. The currents can be a bit tricky here, however, so we recommend that you follow the water for approx. 1.5 km and go swimming at Galsklint Camping instead.
Nearest Ice Cream Bar
Luckily we have plenty of ice cream bars! In fact, we’re an ice cream lover’s paradise. The classic and the most famous is Skovgrillen, which has existed since 1935 and was previously called Karolines Ishus. Skovgrillen is a short walk of about 1 km from the hotel. They now have competition from:
Kitzchen, which in addition to ice cream also offers a food court and street food. In the ice cream bar, they sell Danish-produced, Italian-inspired ice cream and milkshakes. Kitzchen is located on Brovejen approx. 1 km from the hotel. Then there’s the latest competitor, Den Italienske Isbutik in Algade in Middelfart, with its tempting homemade waffle cones and Italian ice cream. It is approx. 1 km from the hotel.
The hotel is located right next to the most beautiful forest, Hindsgavl Deer Park. Our beautiful Hindsgavl peninsula has it all! Open plains, old beech trees, wetlands and steep slopes. You can go deer watching and see the large local deer population.
Nearest High Street
Middelfart’s seafaring past is evident everywhere you look. For instance, De Hængende Haver (The Hanging Gardens), is an idyllic rolling terrace complex with many small pavilions that once housed fishermen and craftsmen. You’ll find the small houses facing the waterfront on the slope towards the old harbour and the Little Belt.
The pedestrian street and Middelfart’s old town are not to be missed. A very charming and authentic experience with cobbled streets, alleys and colourful hollyhocks. All just a beautiful walk of approx. 1 km from the hotel.
Ahoy, Skipper! Spot a harbour porpoise on a whale safari. It may be the world's smallest whale, but it’s still a sight to see! Departure from Middelfart Old Harbour, approx. 1 km from the hotel. If you love animals, you can continue on to Madsby Activity Park in Fredericia, a trip of approx. 8-10 km. There is free admission to the mini-zoo with llamas, goats, rabbits and donkeys, as well as a sand playground, moon car track and Tarzan trail with swing rope. Some of the activities cost from DKK 15-50 per person, such as mini golf, the Madsby train and rowboat rental.

Nearest Picnic Spot
You couldn’t ask for a better spot than our magnificent location at the forest edge on the waterfront. Relax and lay down your blanket right outside the door, along the water or in the woods. A genuine insider tip for an excursion is Strib. A stunningly beautiful walk along the coast and beach road on a partially protected path to Strib Lighthouse, marina and Sophiæodde. It’s simply delightful!
