Klaus’ honey

Klaus Hviid Petersen is a passionate beekeeper and, in our view, his varieties of honey are nothing short of brilliant. Yes, “varieties”, because as Klaus says: “Honey is not just honey!” Spring honey is mild, light and firm. Summer honey is golden, soft and lightly seasoned, whereas late summer honey is dark and deeply aromatic.

The location of the beehives also affects the taste. Klaus’ bee gardens are placed at eight different sites in and around Gråsten and Sønderborg, several of which are visible from Syttende. This is true of the fields at Dybbøl where Klaus has one of his bee gardens. Each site is unique because the flowers found at one bee garden are not found at the rest. This is what gives Klaus’ honey its unique character.

During the season, Klaus’ whole family helps out to produce the honey. Young and old alike help mind the bees and move them for pollination, harvesting and extracting the honey and last, but not least, stirring the honey and filling it in jars.

Syttende is temporarily closed

Dear friends and guests,

In this difficult time, we must take good care of each other. Therefore, at Syttende we are, of course, following the authorities regulations and recommendations. This means that up to and including May 5th we are completely closed. All bookings in this period is unfortunately cancelled.

Meanwhile, we hope that everyone will take good care of themselves and each other until we meet again and Syttende once again can open it’s doors.
