Famous Danish hotel to be rebuilt

Svinkløv Badehotel destroyed by fire last week
It was destroyed by fire just a few days ago, but the iconic holiday hotel Svinkløv Badehotel, one of Denmark’s biggest wooden buildings, will rise from the ashes in 2018.
Until the blaze, Svinkløv Badehotel was the country’s third-largest wooden building, built in Fjerritslev, north Jutland, in 1925 by the Danish-American businessman Carl Brix Kronborg.
Police were alerted to the fire shortly after midnight on September 26, sparked because of a faulty clothes dryer in the basement. Around 70 guests staying at the hotel were evacuated safely.
“The support we have had over the past week leads us to believe in the project,” said Steen Royberg, chairman of the foundation supporting the hotel, adding that it could reopen in time for Easter 2018. “We have the ability, the will and the economic wherewithal to get it rebuilt.”
However, he also said: “We haven’t decided if it will be wood or stone. We will talk about that soon.”
