Aalbæk Gl. Kro is an historic seaside hotel only 20 kilometers south of Skagen in North Jutland. The seaside hotel is located in the center of Aalbæk only 800 meters from the most wonderful sandy beach on the eastern coast of North Jutland. The inn can be dated all the way back to 1818 when the owner at the time earned a living from farming and fishing.
The seaside hotel was mentioned as an inn in 1834 when the owner was registered as an innkeeper in connection with a census. The owner Ole Christian Ramløsa was given his official license to operate an inn and sell distilled alcohol in 1862, and it was presumably here when the seaside hotel’s real “inn history” began.
