Hotel Kong Carl is an adornment to the centre of the whaling and recreational town of Sandefjord. The building dates back to 1690, and by 1721 was already functioning as an inn.

Today, most people associate Sandefjord with glorious summer days and holiday idylls, and they have continued to think of the town this way ever since the establishment of the famous health spa here in 1837.
