The story of

Hotel Phønix

Hotel Phønix in Hjørring was built in 1884-85, and Wilhelm Kypper opened it on 1 May 1885 under the name Kyppers Hotel. In 1899 it was sold to G. Clasen, who renamed it Hotel Bristol, and in 1947 Helga and Holger Jensen bought the hotel and renamed it Hotel Phønix. The hotel was then extended with 27 double rooms and two function rooms. Birgitte Messmann took over the hotel in 1994 and runs it today together with her brother Henrik Messmann.  In 2020, we received a Green Key Certificate based on our sustainable initiatives.
