Since 1939, Teglkroen has served classic Danish lunch dishes in pleasant surroundings.
The restaurant is centrally located in Copenhagen and is well visited by many local customers.
In the first years, Teglkroen was a simple artisan inn, which over the years has also been a permanent refuge for local residents.
During the 1930s and 1940s, the licensed police closed many of these small pubs. But Teglkroen survived.
Today, there are still many locals and regulars in Teglkroen. But it is also a tourist attraction, for foreign guests who want to experience a classic Danish lunch.

The history of Teglkroen
The name is known from 1563 at the earliest in the form “Thegelgaard strede”
“Teglkroen” translated means “The Brick inn”
And the street name means “Brick Street”
It is said that from the time of the Reformation there was a brickworks (a brick yard) with an associated clay grave near the street. In the neighborhood, both an old and a new brick yard are mentioned, but most recently around the year 1600, the brick production had moved. The building has housed a restaurant since 1939.
In its first year, Teglkroen was a simply furnished artisan inn, which over the years has also been a permanent refuge for local residents. Unlike other pubs from the 1930s and 1940s, the place survived undisturbed because Teglkroen’s stable clientele together with the tenant kept the local ladies of the Night out, so that the licensed police had nothing to complain about at the restaurant.
