Sønderborg was founded in 1256, and chartered in 1461. The town developed around Sønderborg Castle, which originally went by the name Sondre Borg. In 1660, a famous palace was built in Sønderborg followed by a small village close by. The palace was later redeveloped into the beautiful baroque building that we see today.

Sønderborg’s landscape was heavily influenced by the Ice Age which has shaped its various valleys, coves, lakes and hills. The town is home to a number of ancient monuments dating back to the Stone Age, as well as various beaches - which are great for bathing. These attractions are matched by excellent serviced apartments which make the perfect accommodation choice in Sønderborg.
