In the middle of the beautiful Mols Hills (since 2009 furthermore a National Park…) Secret Hotel is building up a residency center. We have started by offering shorter residencies, and we tailor each visit according to the person in question. We focus on artists and other professionals whose work relates to the approaches or themes of Landscape Dialogues. Contact us for further info about our residency programme.

The facilities are

  • A small rehearsal studio (6 add 9m, not-high ceiling. Heated wooden floor, and wood oven), internet.
  • Separate house with splendid view, and total stillness, five guest rooms, internet, two work stations.
  • Since June 2016 a newly build atelier flat with two working tables, internet, piano, high-bed.
