Sandvig’s former railway station building from 1912 houses the Station Café at Pension Langebjerg. Ever since the railway between Sandvig and Rønne was closed down in 1953, the sturdy, red-brick station building, with its views of the enormous Hammer promontory, has housed a guesthouse. Today, the guesthouse hosts are Clara and Jakob Beier Lund, who are also opening a café in the former station building this year.
The Station Café at Pension Langebjerg serves excellent traditional fare with a sustainable profile: simple, often vegetable-based dishes made from seasonal organic produce from local growers. The kitchen serves a weekly menu of several side dishes and the ‘Dish of the Day’, available for less than DKK 150. This high-quality food is prepared with care.
The Station Café at Pension Langebjerg is an informal eatery for the whole family, fitted out in a room where railway passengers once waited. No one ever doubts that the venue is run from the heart. Jakob and Clara serve the patrons, seated at tables graced with vases of flowers from the surrounding countryside, and the menu includes wines they themselves have imported. It is possible to dine al fresco on the wide patio laid out overlooking the garden on the station’s original platform. The garden (3,000 m²) is an ideal space for children and parents to romp and play. Sitting there on the patio on a warm summer’s evening, enjoying the combination of delicious everyday fare, the homely environment and the garden, will make you feel like you are spending time with good friends.
The Station Café at Pension Langebjerg is open both to guesthouse guests and drop-in visitors. Dinner is served Monday to Friday from 5 to 9 pm. Table reservations are recommended.
After forty years of passenger-train service, the railway from Rønne to Sandvig was closed down in 1953. Afterwards, the red station building was rejuvenated as a guesthouse, and the current hosts are Jakob and Clara who hire out 16 charming rooms from May to October. The rooms have been carefully refurbished, respecting the building’s original aesthetics
Clara and Jakob have tried to preserve the unique characteristics of the building and accentuate the local history in the interior décor. The Station Café at Pension Langebjerg is fitted out in the former waiting room. The walls are adorned with framed old train timetables and technical drawings of the building, and even include a photograph of Denmark’s then king, Christian X, taken at the official opening of the railway section to Rønne in 1912. The many pictures and objects infuse the charming interior décor with a waft of local history and remind guests of the Station Café’s fascinating history at the same time.
