Why Marienlyst Hotel?

Beach Hotel since 1861

Named after Frederik V’s wife, Queen Juliane Marie, and founded in 1861, Hotel Marienlyst quickly made a name for itself throughout Europe. Among the prominent guests were princes and royalty, in addition to the Copenhagen nobility, who came up the coast to enjoy summer on the Oresund. Every week, glamour-hungry readers of the local newspaper could satisfy their curiosity by gazing at the long list of recently-arrived guests at Hotel Marienlyst.

The hotel also attracted King Christian IX and his brother Prince Hans, who stayed every summer in the hotel’s upscale room no. 15. The Russian Czar ate lunch with his entire entourage, and the Prince of Wales enjoyed a good meal in the restaurant. Crown Prince Frederik, later King Frederik VIII, gave the hotel privileges to fly the royal Splitflag, and to use the royal crown in its logo. He also allowed the hotel to operate a gambling parlour, making Casino Marienlyst the first casino in Denmark.
