The saga of the King Frederik Inn began in 1960 as an ode to Denmark's illustrious past, conceptualized by Daryl Nielsen. Drawing inspiration from the then-reigning King Frederik of Denmark, the inn rapidly etched its presence into Solvang's tapestry, becoming a haven for travelers seeking warmth and comfort. Over six decades later, the Nielsen family still leads the way.
