Summer season 1930 begins and guests arrive. Georg Madsen's gone bankrupt (Wall Street crash) but has new plans. Otto's bankrupt, too. The hotel's kitchen garden is at risk. Morten's still missing. ...
Badehotellet is the story about the guests and staff at a beach hotel by the North Sea sand dunes. At the heart of the story is the lives of three young people, the chambermaid Fie, the merchant's daughter Amanda, and the local fisherman Morten. Their fates are intertwined, and their stories are about emancipating themselves from the plans other people have made on their behalf, the attempts on social ascent, and about losing and finding oneself on the way. The series is inspired by the way of life at the many seaside hotels of the past, and reflects our own time with its mixture of financial crisis, denial, and dreams of happiness. The story takes place in the years 1928-33 where the world is falling apart. The characters will go through tears and laughter in the captivating journey that takes place as times change from optimism to crisis. It's a multi-plot-series that dynamically shifts between upstairs and downstairs, and between seriousness and humour.Written by

Marvelous series with something for everyone. Wish that there were longer shots of the food. Will see if website gives food credits. Would love to make some of those delightful-looking dishes.
