Alrø Købmandgaard - Bison Burgers

Enjoy a bison burger, some mouth watering tapas, or refreshing ice cream, with a scenic view of Horsens Fjord. At Alrø Købmandsgaard the bison meat is from own produce - and the ice cream is named after the bull Ferdinand. It's island-idyll at it's best - and super tasty!

The great taste of the countryside

The small island of Alrø is a true gem in the East Jutland Archipelago. Once, the Danish author Morten Korch lived here and found his inspiration to a lot of his works, in the idyllic surroundings.

As soon as you drive over the dam to the island, you’ll experience the slow pace of the island-life set in. Also, you’ll experience the big buffaloes, that grasses on the fields down to the coast. At Alrø Købmandsgaard you can even get to taste them! Try a juicy bison-burger, best enjoyed from the big terrace overlooking the fjord.

Cafe & ice parlor

Alrø Købmandsgaard houses a cafe, an ice cream parlor, and a shop - all at once.

In the cafe you'll find something for any taste. Besides burgers and tapas, the cafe also serves a veggie-burger and kid-friendly options. So please, bring the whole family!

for the grown ups, we recommend trying the Bison Wine and Beer with your meal. It'll perfectly compliment the savory taste of the dark meat. However, you can also choose between many other delicious beverages, such as draft beer, lighter wines, and a variety of cold drinks.

Is it time for afternoon tea? In the cafe you can get different kinds of coffee, tea, cocoa, as well as homemade baked goods. If you're merely in the mood for a sweet snack, try one of the old fashioned Danish traditional ice cream cones. They come in three sizes: Ferdinand (large), Josephine (medium), and Minimuh (small). Enjoy it all at the terrace, with the idyllic scenery of the fields and the fjord.
