Since 1896, Ny Hattenæs has been a lively gathering place for happy guests. Whether you come by foot, by boat, or drive through the forest, it’s impossible to not take in the history and beauty of the place. And that’s exactly how it should be. We want Ny Hattenæs Hotel and Restaurant to be a place where people gather to make memories together. A place where everyone is welcome, whether you’re in need of a refreshing stop after a long bicycle ride or just stopping by before a boat ride on the lake. It’s a place for everyone who wants something great to eat before they go for a walk in the forest – or simply for the people who want a little break from the everyday hustle and bustle.

Ny Hattenæs Hotel has a fantastic location in the middle of Søhøjlandet’s beautiful nature, and that encourages new adventures. You can kayak, canoe, and paddleboard on the lakes, cycle on the many mountain bike trails in the forest, put on your best hiking boots and explore the surroundings, or jump into the water from the boat bridge that sits close to the hotel.

You can also go on a wonderful walk that takes you through the forest and along the water’s edge of Gudenåen, Denmark’s longest river, and into the center of Silkeborg. In three kilometers, you find yourself in the middle of Silkeborg’s center with museums, shops, and cafes aplenty.

During the summer period, it’s possible to board Hjejleselskabet’s boats on the jetty just by the hotel. When staying at Ny Hattenæs Hotel, the possibilities are many, and we’re always ready with good recommendations and advice should you need it.

Up until 2011 when it was converted into a conference center, Ny Hattenæs always remained a hotel, although with changing owners. In 2020, Ny Hattenæs was purchased by the current owners who have renovated the entire hotel over the course of two years.

Among the locals, Ny Hattenæs Hotel is known for having hosted many private parties and events over the years, as well as numerous school trips, Pentecost parties, Sankt Hans midsummer bonfire nights, and much more.
