Our History

Our history goes back to 1790. People traveling the highways were looked after with fare from the tiny smallholding and farms, locally brewed beer and schnapps. In later years the inn became the hub of hunting parties, becoming the place of choice for the Danish painter, Johannes Larsen, a space to work and to recharge his energies. After generations of being in the gastronomic hands of Hans Beck Thomsen, in 2008 the Skouboe family took over the inn and a complete programme of renovation started. Paul Cunningham came to Henne Kirkeby Kro as head chef in 2012. Upon venturing from the main cities in 2016, Michelin awarded our inn with it’s first star, the second arrived in 2017.
