Black Sun stay at Schackenborg Slotskro

1 night - including guided tour for Black Sun

Under expansive skies and close to the marshes and the sea, lies the town of Møgeltønder. On the attractive cobblestone street of Slotsgade, where you may find ducks waddling during the day and historic lamps lighting up the scene at night, lies the inn of Schackenborg Slotskro, which has held privileged rights since 1687, in addition to having the castle of Schackenborg Slot as its nearest neighbour.
We make a point of upholding history at the inn, and we look forward to taking you on a gastronomic journey that represents a modern take on the culinary traditions of Sønderjylland based on good, local ingredients.

Check-in is from 2.00 p.m. until 9.00 p.m., whilst your room must be vacated by 10.00 a.m. on the day of your departure. If you expect to arrive after 5.00 p.m., please contact us no later than 4.00 p.m. on the day of your arrival on +45 7930 6900 or email: Our rooms are primarily located in townhouses near the inn. Some of the rooms are on the first floor; these can be reached by flights of steps, whilst other rooms are at street level. Our double rooms have either a bath or a shower cubicle. If you have any specific requirements, please contact Slotskroen at least 3 days prior to arrival.

In addition to the inn’s exquisite restaurant, which is open from monday evening until Saturday, you also have the option of visiting our café in Herskabsstalden at the castle itself in the high season. As both venues are extremely popular, we recommend that you book well in advance. Further information concerning menus can be found at, where a table for lunch can also be booked. Table reservation for dinner can be made at, preferably with an indication of what time you wish to eat. We can also be contacted on +45 7930 6900.
Please note that unfortunately we are unable to guarantee a table in the restaurant for our overnight guests.

Included in the stay is a trip in your own car with a guide from Sort Safari® on the day of arrival. Experience the starlings performing the fantastic "ballet" in the evening sky somewhere in the marsh. Sort Safari® finds the starlings for you and takes you up close.
Black sun occurs when starlings gather in their thousands over the roof pipe zones to go to rest knowing that it can be a fight to the death when hungry birds of prey attack. The starling overnight stay in the marsh - Black sun - is a unique and magical nature experience that must be experienced at least once in a lifetime!
On the trip, you get close to nature in the marshes and hear about the life of starlings and the Black Sun phenomenon.

The trip lasts approx. 3 hours, incl. guiding and either a bus tour or driving in own car.
Bring your passport, as the starlings often choose to spend the night south of the border.
We recommend practical clothing (possibly wind and waterproof outerwear) and practical footwear (possibly rubber boots).
A walk of 1-2 km must be assumed. Please bring binoculars and a seat pad/cushion.
When booking, you will receive detailed information about the trip and meeting place per mail.
