Jelling Kro dates back to 1773 when wayside farms were given royal privilege as inns. Indeed, it was not only a privilege but also a duty at the time. The inn itself along with the Jelling Monuments were heritage listed in 1947.

The inn serves lunch until 15:30 and evening dining between 17:00 and 20:30. Coffee, tea, cake and ice cream desserts are served during all opening hours. During summer months, the restaurant offers outdoor service.

Jelling Kro has two banquet rooms: Runesalen (The Runic Hall) that seats 100 guests and Havestuen (The Conservatory) that seats 45 diners. Apart from private functions and events the banquet rooms also host seminars and public lectures.
