About Købmandsgaarden

Feel the whisper of history. Charming and peaceful accommodation in the midst of Andresen’s Købmandsgaard in Kerteminde.

Købmandsgaarden consists of buildings dating all the way back to the 17th century. Merchant Emil Andreasen took over the business in 1887, giving his name to the house and the address.

The entire building complex was renovated in 2001 and today, from the outside, it appears as a peaceful time capsule in the heart of the city.

Købmandsgaarden is located in the middle of town – next to Langegade, which is the main street in Kerteminde. Restaurants and shops are just around the corner. Langebro is right outside the gate, where the water flows past into Nordet. It is also here that the statue of Amanda from Kerteminde is placed, gazing out over the water.

Our part of Købmandsgaarden is called the “Mellemmagasinet.” Originally, the building was used as a grain store, bachelor quarters, and egg packaging facility.

On the first floor of Købmandsgaarden you’ll find four sunny, spacious, and cozy double rooms and a large shared living room.

In the shared living room, there’s a kitchen where you can prepare a light meal, a dining table with seating for 6-8 people, two small dining tables, and a sofa arrangement with a TV.

Common to the 4 rooms are 2 toilets with showers. In one bathroom, there’s a washing machine that you are welcome to use.

The entire floor features solid plank floors and large visible beam structures. Especially the massive beams harken back to the history of timber framing and are part of what makes Købmandsgaarden in Kerteminde truly special.
