The agreement is a long-term lease that will enter into force in October 2022.
Hotel Opus is located in state-of-the-art hotel and conference facilities with a view of the Nørrestrand nature reserve and downtown Horsens just around the corner. The property is built in Scandinavian style and features bright, open spaces and a large terrace that guests can enjoy in the summer.

“We’ve had an good dialogue with Munkebjerg Group and we are very happy to have the opportunity to take over this fantastic hotel. We are already familiar with the region, a popular area that attracts business and leisure travelers alike and where we see continued strong hotel demand. By welcoming this new hotel to the Scandic family, we see great opportunities to continue developing the hospitality industry in the area,” says Søren Faerber, Head of Scandic Hotels Denmark.
“We are pleased to have entered into a partnership regarding Hotel Opus Horsens with Scandic, a skilled hotel operator that shares our values. After 50 years of running hotels, it’s great to be able to take a step back and instead manage the property with Scandic as tenant,” says Hans Geschwendtner from Munkebjerg Group.
Scandic already operates one hotel in Horsens, Scandic Bygholm Park, which the company will exit when the lease expires at the end of the year. After taking over Hotel Opus, Scandic will have 132 hotel rooms in operation in Horsens going forward, ensuring a continued strong position in the region.
