“It’s important to us that as soon as our guests step over the threshold and walk through that door they know they’re in good hands and can relax. The menu is created to have an element of storytelling and the wine is paired to perfectly accompany it, to give you a complete dining experience. The rooms are also designed to reflect the story behind the building,” says the passionate Kohl.
Getting down to business Schackenborg Slotskro not only boasts a fantastic restaurant and beautiful rooms; it also has space for conferences. “Our business guests come here to brainstorm and to get an inspiring change of scenery. We develop a package with the client, so that when they’re here they can do their work and explore the area, of course all with great food, snacks and drinks,” says the chef. “We also tend to be able to offer more than they can in the big cities, meaning that you get more for your money in Møgeltønder.” There are numerous rooms available and if you are a group of more than 25 people you can rent out the whole hotel to have it all at your disposal. “What we find is that
our clients thoroughly enjoy it as it’s a relaxed business setting, but they actually get more done because the discussions can go on long into the night,” says Kohl.
A meeting point Schackenborg Slotskro has, for hundreds of years, been the meeting point for the local community and for people travelling through, and Kohl has managed to maintain the welcoming attitude. “We often get people who choose to stay an extra night or who come back,” he says, and with the hotel winning the Best Breakfast award it is easy to see why. “We take a lot of pride in our breakfast, which is served directly to your table and includes yoghurt, eggs and a spread with everything your heart desires. Everything is cooked and prepared when you sit down, so you know it’s as fresh as it can be.”
Schackenborg Slotskro furthermore offers a black sun package where you get to experience the magnificent sight of thousands of migrating starlings trying to escape the attacking birds of prey every spring and autumn. Schackenborg Slotskro is certainly worth travelling for. Whether you are looking for dinner, an overnight stay or a holiday, the team at Schackenborg Slotskro will ensure that you have the most amazing experience with fantastic food, beautiful scenery and memories to last a lifetime.

The local area Kohl has not just created a successful restaurant and hotel; he is also an active member of the local community. “During the winter, when the evenings are long and quiet, I find projects to do,” says the chef, who has set up a lamb festival and a red deer festival.
