The historic building
The building in which you find Jørgensens Hotel (Det Lichtenbergske Palæ) was built in 1744 as a residence for the successful noble merchant Gehrdt de Lichtenberg and his family. The beautiful baroque mansion has many distinctive architectonic details both inside and outside. Above the stunning doorway you can see the German words “Wass Gott Beschert Uns Niemand Wehrt”. In 1749 King Frederick V of Denmark stayed the night in Det Lichtenbergske Palæ. On this occasion de Lichtenberg was appointed Councillor of State by the King.
After de Lichtenberg passed away the building was used as an inn from 1813. In 1849 Anders Jørgensen bought the mansion and gave it the name Jørgensens Hotel. He made the building available for the city’s inhabitants. It was a special place for special occasions. Since then, Jørgensens Hotel has been a place where locals and tourists can enjoy themselves, experience great service and be enthralled by the impressive surroundings.
