Fakkelgaarden is translated from danish the "Farm of Torches" and you can bet on they turn on the fire. Not the first time I have visited this fantastic place, located next to the Flenborg Fjord with a look to Germany, but still I am happy to come to the place, which might be the best place to go for dining...

I have had the pleasure of staying at Fakkelgaarden on three occasions, and it has been a wonderful experience each time. The hotel is located in a gorgeous setting overlooking the blue waves and ships on Flensburg Fjord with easy access to the beach for a quiet stroll before or after dinner. Rooms are well kept, romantically decorated and good... More

We got a fantastic deal: 1 night in the hotel, 3 coarse gourmet evening dinner, breakfast and a round of golf on SønderJyllands Golf Course - all for 999DKr. The hotelrooms are nice (but missing air-conditioning), staff is polite and offers superb service, meals are top-class, surrounding and view is about the best you will get anywhere. Everything very close... More

Stayed at Fakklelgaarden in February for a socalled Gourmet stay. The best thing was the view from the room, which was samall and felt somehow outdated. Especially the carpet outside the door to our room was dated, in fact it was dangerous due to a hole at the top of steep stairs. The breakfast was served at the table, had... More

Fakkelgaarden is a small hotel - 26 rooms only. Located on the border to Germany on the brinks of the Flensborg Fjord. The rooms are all of a high standard with tasteful interior and the most with a fantastic view to the Fjord. Plan to stay there, ask for room 112 - you'll not be disappointed. The lounges are very...

Fakkelgården didn't quite deliver. The service is excellent - very, very friendly and welcoming staff, the hotel itself is beautiful, but all in all we were slightly dissapointed. Our room was OK in size but had a sloped wall which caused banging of heads and shoulders and - for my husband - something even more enervating: when using the facilities... More

On our way back from Flensburg we stopped for a late lunch, even though we arrived 5 minutes before they stop serving lunch, we were greeted and treated very well. They were in no hurry or rush, and served a very well prepared 3 course lunch. Breathtaking view and one of the best days of weather we had had this... More

A steep decline to the beachfront through a quiet grove of huge trees is well worth a short hike after check-in and before going to dinner. Maybe a great start on the morning sundrenched day-after staying there too, but didn't try that. Classic and romantic furniture in the room with modern touches of marble. Do eat dinner there because the... More

This is indeed a hidden treasure for food lovers! I am pretty sure that you can’t find a restaurant in a 50 miles radius that serves so delicious meals in so perfect surroundings; the buildings dates back to the 1930’s and have unrestricted views over the Flensburg fiord. The 6 course meal we got was perfect assembled with ingredients from... More
