Welcome to Freia Bar & Lounge, with its warm, pleasant atmosphere.
Sink back into one of our comfortable chairs or sofas with a refreshing drink and enjoy the pleasant atmosphere and views of Alssund.
Let your eyes wander along the Sønderborg waterfront where modern architecture interacts beautifully with historic buildings from many different centuries.
Enjoy a glass of wine from our extensive wine list, a cold beer, coffee specialties or explore our menu of drinks and cocktails.
Freia is situated in the centre of Sønderborg’s new waterfront, designed by world-renowned architect Frank Gehry. From here there are views of the Dybbøl Mill, Sønderborg Castle and Alsion, home to one of Europe’s best concert halls for symphonic music.
Weather permitting, Freia opens its large patio doors, letting in the sounds and life of the waterfront. As the days become shorter and colder, we move inside to the warmer, cosier atmosphere of Freia Bar & Lounge.
…and it is the hall of Freyja
FREIA IS NAMED AFTER FREYJA, THE NORDIC GODDESS OF LOVE AND FERTILITY.
In Nordic mythology, Freyja was not only the most important goddess, she was also the most beautiful. She was the object of sacrificial offerings by Vikings on Als and throughout Scandinavia and to whom they prayed for happiness, love and, not least, a good harvest. As the goddess of fertility, Freyja ensured that the grain grew tall in the fields, that there was an abundance of forest berries, nuts and fruit and that game and domestic livestock flourished.
