Cultural House Ellekær-Gård
Welcome to Ellekær-Gaard - private accomodation in charming and idyllic surroundings
Take a detour from E45 on your way to Norway, Sweden or the rest of Scandinavia and stop for a good night’s rest at Ellekaer-Gaard’s small Bed & Breakfast place.
Our refurbished farmhouse is in the countryside, but only 5 minutes drive from E45 and less than 30 minutes drive from Frederikshavn and Aalborg.
If you wish to use Ellekaer-Gaard as your base for tours around the nature in North Jutland, we will be happy to let you use our bicycles or walking sticks free of charge.
We are located close to the beautiful renaissance castle, Voergaard Slot, the old Millhouse and the Hunting and Forestry Museum in Dorf, Dronninglund Slot (Castle) and the Great Forest around the Great Jutland Ridge.
The ideal place to stay for hikers and cyclists on the Ancient Road Haervejen with possibility for catering, i.e. dinner and lunch packs, pick-up and luggage transportation.
