Gl. Rye Kro

Gl. Rye Kro

The rooms are situated in a new wing and they all have bath- toilet and colour TV . There are also in-door swimming pool- solarium and fitness room . There are also lovely sitting rooms with TV and video in the inn itself and two restaurants with a large menu . The location in the lake highlands invites to excursions to Silkeborg and to the magnificent nature on and near-by the 147 m high hill Himmelbjerg . Jutlands largest lake Mossoe has a rich bird and fish life and thus there are fine possibilities of fishing but also of cycling and hiking following the signposted paths in the wood and along the lake . Gl . Rye was once an important town in Denmark . In the Middle Ages it was a centre for culture and politics in Denmark . It was here in the church Skt . Soerens Kirke that Denmarks nobility and clergy met in 1534 to crown the new king - King Christian the 3rd . Only a section of the impressive church is left today because parts of the nave and the original tower were torn down after the Reformation . The present tower dates from 1912 but it stands at exactly the same spot as the old tower - therefore it looks as if it is almost straggling out from the rest of the church . There has probably also been an inn here in the 1500s but the present inn can only be traced back to approximately 400 years ago . The inn has been restored with a gentle touch and today it appears with all modern conveniences without damaging the old atmosphere . The whole area is rich in historic relics and at the same time we are close to the hill Himmelbjerget in the mid-Jutland lake highlands which impressed the Danish author Hans Christian Andersen very much when he was on his great Jutland tour in 1859 . He called the area - the highlands with forest solitude . Besides the church in Gl . Rye - you should also visit the mill Gl . Rye Moelle with its small wooden shoe museum . From the mill there are footpaths to the hills Galgebakken and Skovsbjerg and to the mill Klostermoelle at the river Gudenaa .
