Slusegaard is situated in a scenic, fully preserved area. The vegetation in the area is kept down by conservation grazing, so if you go for a walk, you will be walking among sheep, lambs, and a few horses - which you are welcome to pat.
Řleĺen Stream winds its way down to the sea just behind Slusegaard and flows into the Baltic a few hundred metres from Slusegaard. The beach is an excellent uncrowded bathing beach.
We have converted a former pig barn into a café and taken great pains to keep our venue in its original rustic style. A former dung yard is now our al fresco eating area.
We have collected old photos, texts, etc., and displayed them on the walls. This includes information about the geographical nodal point, the watermill and fish house, etc., and not least about Queen Margrethe's excavations as a young Crown Princess in the early 1960s. In addition, we provide newspapers, various games and free Wi-Fi in the café.
Slusegaard is located near Dueodde Point - and in fact it is situated at the exact point where the 15th meridian east intersects the 55th parallel north (the nodal point). This is actually the only place in Denmark where the sun is due south at 12 noon. So we are easy to find.
You are welcome to drop by our café, no matter if you are arriving by car, on foot, biking or on public transport. A biking route and public transport services run right past our front door.
