My husband's great uncle was part of the resistance back in WW2 that worked out of this in ... so visiting it was a must for us. We arrived with family members from Denmark (we were visiting from Canada for the first time) and I was immediately in awe of the entire place. It was like stepping back in time.... More

A traditional Kro, over 325 years old. Very well kept and carefully restored. Lots of visitors for lunch on a wednesday, so service was slightly slow, but that was understandable. Very friendly waiters and wonderful traditional food.

The signature for Hvidsten Kro is the "Recipe" which dates back 70 or more years. This is a list of various foods, cold, warm, cold cuts, etc. all put together by one of the former owners together with the local Vet. I guarantee - you will not be able to finish this off, so take my advice and order only... More

We went there for lunch and had the famous eggs with pork. It was perfect and like being at your grandma's. The room was filled with old tea pots and things from the WWII and older. The staff was incredibly sweet. The only minus was that we waited quite some time for the food. But taking into account that it... More

We were invited to take part in a birthday lunch at "Hvidsten Kro". We had been to the place at earlier occasions and had not been overly impressed with neither the seating arrangement or the menus. However, at this occasion everything was near to perfection. The seating was comfortable, the table neatly decorated, the service in top and the menu... More

On a recent trip to Denmark, I watched the film, Hvidstin Gruppen, with my Danish friends and then made a day of driving to Randers with them to see the Inn, and enjoy the food. The film tells the story of the Fiil family and their participation in the Danish resistance during World War II. It's a moving story, and... More

This place is soaked in olden days character, Danish tradition and history, so if only for these reasons it is worth a visit. We went for the eggekaken and beer, because apart from the references to the Danish resistance in WW11 it is what this pace is famous for. The food is as traditional as the surroundings so don't expect... More

It's the basic Danish dishes nicely prepared. I guess if you have never eaten traditional Danish food then the menu may be considered strange. But, if like me, you love the dark breads with lots of different toppings, schnapps, meatballs and pork omelette. It's great. If you want to try real rural Danish food then this is the place to...

Here we go for a very large meal, in Danish called "recepten". I you go here to eat, you need to have time enough, because you cannot hurry eating here.Good food and very historic surroundings. The place did house a resistance during the second worldwar, and most of a family here was executed.. The place is still in the hands... More
