The green embankments, surrounding our park are the remains of a fortress, Farjestadens Skans. You are indeed in "the middle of history", here at Hotel Skansen. The fortress is from the early 1600's and was then called "Krakeskars Skans". It probably played an important part at the time of the Danish invasion 1611. Around 1700 a district-courthouse was constructed inside the fortress. The buildings you see today were built 1811, and while they originally served as a courthouse, they have since 1901 been a hotel. We will do our very best to make your stay comfortable and joyful. Is anything missing or is it something you desire? Please let us know - We will do our best to fulfil your wishes. The Hotel Hotel Skansen have 79 rooms - 24 double rooms in "Tingshuset" including 6 suites with Jacuzzi, and 55 rooms in the main building, where 36 of them are brand new and ready to stay in from may 2015. All rooms with satellite TV and telephone. A modern hotel with a personal atmosphere and old charm. Family owned and managed.
