Tønder is the capital of the marshland and the oldest merchant town in Denmark, located close to the Danish-German border. The town is fascinating from a historical and idyllic point of view, with beautifully renovated old houses, many interesting shops and good restaurants. With Tønder as a base for visiting the south-western corner of Denmark, a fascinating experience is assured in terms of scenery, culture, history, sports, shopping and recreation. In terms of nature, one item worth mentioning is the unique Wadden Sea and the dykes. There is a large parking area by the hostel and a green area with activities and playground for children and the young at heart. DANHOSTEL Tønder is one of Southern Jutland's most popular hostels. Please check hostel for low-season prices., Please note that HI membership discount will only be applied to the room rate

Reception was only open 14.00 - 16.00. Entrance security outside these hours very poor. No lights on in the entrance or reception areas when we arrived at approx 19.00. We tried phoning the warden as we were unable to locate the guest kitchen but it went through to answerphone and we didn't get a response. When we found the kitchen it was inadequate for the number of guests the hostel slept (only 4 hobs). The following day the receptionist was quite rude and tried to overcharge us for the stay.

a key for the entrance door should be given to everyone staying to allow access to the building at night
