Kong Hans Kælder was the first restaurant in Denmark with a Michelin star. We delivered gastronomic decadence long before Copenhagen became a world-class, culinary destination.

“Kong Hans Kælder isn’t just a restaurant. It’s an institution. Renowned chefs have worked in this kitchen. I feel extremely proud to be a part of it.” ​

The team at Kong Hans Kælder comes from all parts of Denmark and from all over the world. Everyone is an important piece and helps maintain our strong traditions within gastronomy and hospitality.

We are grateful that Kong Hans Kælder is a workplace people stay at for many years.

One of our most important tasks is to give our employees better skills and abilities than when they first came to Kong Hans Kælder.

We do this by giving each employee a great deal of responsibility.

“We slice, flambé and filet at the table. It’s old-school craftsmanship in just the right way.”
