Hotel Alsik

At the harbour front in Sønderborg, the new Hotel Alsik with its surrounding landscape and new public spaces complete the masterplan by the American architect Frank Gehry.

In the heart of the green, sensuous and active urban space designed by SLA, visitors can take a break and enjoy the art installation called ‘Time Circles’ by artist Olafur Eliasson. The project brings new life to the port town of Sønderborg with its new city nature and nature-based design of the urban space.

In addition to restaurants, wellness facilities and event space, the 19-story hotel- and spa building features 190 rooms.
