About Sankt Helene
In 1991, the holiday complex Sankt Helene came into existence in the middle of North Zealand´s beautiful countryside. Sankt Helene spreads over 12 hectares of former farmland surrounding the restored farm ‘Vieholmgaard’ which now contains the reception area, the restaurant and a gallery.
Today, the 12 hectares comprise green meadows, fragrant fields, small lush oases and a pen with most of the animals usually found on a farm.
Within walking distance of Sankt Helene, you will find the inviting sandy beaches of the Kattegat, the forest area ‘Tisvilde Hegn’ and the old fishing hamlet Tisvildeleje with its small, charming shops, cafes, and workshops where you can watch the local candle maker and glass blower work.
At Sankt Helene the environment - in every sense of the word - can only be described as ‘good’.
The main buildings containing the reception area and Restaurant Sofie is a restored farm from 1894 which together with the new buildings, that have been added to the centre, form the physical environment at Sankt Helene. Thus, combining both new and old in a display of architectural history and new building traditions.
Furthermore, we are very proud to have been awarded the environmental certificate ‘The Green Key’ which is proof of the fact that we live up to a long list of environmental requirements. To mention a few; we have a non-smoking restaurant, we offer non-smoking rooms and a selection of ecological products for breakfast plus a long list of our energy-saving measures. In addition to the above, Sankt Helene has been carefully fitted out to make sure that it is accessible for people with disabilities.
The Green Key
Sankt Helene has obtained - and kept - the environmental certificate ‘The Green Key’ since 1997. This proves that Sankt Helene pays extra attention to the preservation of the environment. To you, as a guest, it means that you have the opportunity to choose to sleep in a non-smoking room, have dinner in a non-smoking restaurant, and, furthermore, that all the bread at Sankt Helene is ‘home made’ from ecological products - just to mention a few of the most obvious examples.
DANHOSTEL Danmarks Vandrerhjem
A hostel card paves the way to hostels all over the world - and also to Sankt Helene. In Denmark, as well as many other countries, the standard of hostels has reached a level where it is comparable to other more luxurious accommodation forms such as e.g. hotels.
At Sankt Helene you can require a list made by the Danish Centre for Accessibility, which describes how well the centre is fitted out for different kinds of disabilities. Generally, Sankt Helene has been declared to be accessible with all kinds of disabilities.
