The only up-to-date English-language guide available on the subject today, Scandinavian Historic Inns offers a smorgardsbord of places to stay in Denmark, Sweden, and Norway. The accommodations range from the extravagant to the extremely economical, yet they all share one characteristic: a long and intriguing history. The eight-hundred-year-old inn in Denmark, the Swedish hotel that annually houses the Nobel Peace Prize winner, and the fjellstue (mountain cabins) of Norway that have welcomed guests since the time of the Vikings all eagerly await visitors. Many of the inns originated as guesthouses along the royal roads. In exchange for the "privilege" of operation, they always had to have acommodations available for the monarch and his or her servants, even if it meant turning away potential guests. Today it is possible to stay in numerous inns throughout Scandinavia that have housed royalty. More literary options include sitting in Henrik Ibsen's chair in Oslo's Grand Hotel or staying in any of the multitude of inns visited by Hans Christian Andersen.
