Weddings, parties and celebrations

Kilen is also an ideal place for weddings and other celebrations. The venue is either our restaurant (number 4 on the map) or our renovated old saltery (number 21 on the map) down by the harbour. We also have a small chapel for ceremonies. You can book accomodation for your guest from our hostel (number 24 on the map) and we have a new sauna area that can be booked for groups (not on the map, but located close to the camping area number 26 on the map). You can find pictures of the altery venue and the chapel here
