About the hotel

A classic spot for bon vivants

As early as the 1920s, the current Hotel Skansen was a meeting place for our guests to indulge in all sorts of activities, such as swimming and tennis. Traditions are to be cared for, and so today we take great pride in providing great tennis courts, salt baths, and an overall leisurely life.

Spa Weekend


Sure, you could train as hard as Nadal, but honestly – is that really fun? We believe in the power of life and nature. A fresh morning break at the cold bath house. A lively brunch with lovely conversation. Relaxing moments in our spa. A tennis match with your best mate/rival, followed up with a glass of champagne on the terrace. Or take the champagne with you and watch a match instead. Whatever you do here, you’ll be sure to enjoy yourself.

Meetings & Events


Some come for the service and facilities, others for our sensational food. Still others come for our cold baths — if you want to build a team, here is the place to do it. Between the hot sauna, the cold water, and beer on the pier, you can form your group into a real team.
