The cottage is connected with F09324. The two accommodations are ideal for families who do not want to give up some privacy on a common vacation. On Als it is like in the Danish national anthem - 'Es liegt ein lieblich Land im Schatten breit Buchen am salz'gen Ostseestrand? ? because the beeches really do grow far out onto the beach here. And there are many beaches, their water is pure and child-friendly. On 165 km of coast there is surely a place for you too. Als has a mild climate and spring arrives early. Als is also close to an international shipping route, but lies as a peaceful oasis ...

You can't get closer than the sea and the forest than in this vacation home! This charming vacation home has a unique location; the only ones who might disturb you here are the animals or a hiker on the beach. You will find such a pearl very rarely. You can enjoy the unique view of the sea from the terrace or directly from the living room and listen to the sound of the sea. Maybe even a seal or a porpoise will pass by on its hunt for prey. Please note that the last 100 meters to the house is an uneven path that is not cleared in winter.Vacation means muchv time for leisurely activities with...

Vacation rentals in Denmark

A vacation rental at the North Sea

If you are looking for a vacation rental on Denmark's North Sea coast, you have a wide choice, because you will find countless cosy holiday accommodation in the large tourist centres such as Esbjerg, Klitmoller and Aalborg as well as on the inland lakes in the hinterland of the coastline. The mostly privately owned holiday apartments and houses are modernly furnished and usually have large plots of land as well as extras such as a whirlpool, a winter garden or a sauna.

Holidays at the Baltic Sea coast

The east of Denmark borders on the Baltic Sea, whose coastline from Skagen in the north via the metropolis Aarhus and the capital Copenhagen to Sonderburg in the south is just as rich in holiday resorts. You will live in one of the traditional red painted wooden houses in one of the picturesque bays such as Horsens Fjord or Vejle Fjord, which often have their own landing stage from which you can set sail.

A holiday apartment on Denmark's Baltic islands

The Danish Baltic islands of Laesoe, Als, Falster and Seeland are somewhat calmer than on the mainland. Nature lovers, however, are drawn to the island of Bornholm off the south coast of Sweden, where you can let your soul dangle in a vacation rental surrounded by greenery.

Travelers and Activities

Denmark for families

Denmark offers ideal conditions for families, with plenty of sunshine, miles of sandy beaches and access to two seas, as well as numerous attractions. While little adventurers are drawn into the rainforest in Randers Regnskov Park, the Farup Sommerland offers swimming fun and water slides. Nature lovers will also enjoy a visit to the Ree Safari Park, the Butterfly Park on the island of Bornholm or the large marine aquarium in Kattegat. The family experience is rounded off by a trip to Legoland or the Hans Christian Andersen House, where you can immerse yourself in the fairytale world of the great Dane.

Denmark for cyclists

Not least because of its flat topography, Denmark is considered a cycling paradise. This is true both for inner-city traffic and much more so in rural areas. Over 10,000 kilometres of signposted cycle paths speak for themselves and invite you to explore the picturesque coastline and lakes. Thanks to the short distances between the towns and the ease with which bikes can be taken on all public transport, longer tours can also be undertaken with the family. The 26 panoramic cycle routes, each dedicated to a particular theme such as nature, cultural history or historical sights, are particularly suitable for short tours.

According to the UN Happiness Report, Denmark is home to the happiest people in the world.

Top 5 travel tips

A trip to Copenhagen

As a cultural centre, a visit to Copenhagen is part of every holiday in Denmark. In addition to its numerous operas and theatres, the city is home to countless museums and exhibitions. The "Statens Museum for Kunst", the "Königlich Dänische Zeughausmuseum", the "Medizin-Historisches Museum" as well as the geological collection are particularly worth seeing. A side trip to the picturesque harbour quarter Nyhavn with its colourful facades is also worthwhile, which also decorates some postcards.

Legoland in Billund

Legoland in Billund is easy to reach from your vacation rental via the highways and has nine theme worlds where young and old fans of the square building blocks can immerse themselves in the world of adventurers, knights and pirates. Attractions such as the dragon ride, the X-treme Racers roller coaster or the Vikings River Splash whitewater ride attract visitors to the theme worlds. If you want to take it easier, drive through Pengiun Bay, visit the Lego Safari Park or enjoy the view from the Legotop Tower from a height of 36 metres.

The Egeskov moated castle

Egeskov Castle is situated on the island of Funen and is one of Denmark's most famous historic buildings. The country castle, completed in 1554, is characterised both by late Gothic elements and by influences of the Baroque period and has several museums as well as a garden worth seeing. During a guided tour through the Titanias Palace and the Castle Museum with its magnificent rooms, you will admire art objects from the past and gain an insight into the royal life of the former castle owners.

A visit to the end of the world

At the northern tip of Jutland the Kettegat and the Skagerrak merge and connect the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. On the headland, which is changed in shape by the forces of the current every year, you actually feel like you are at the end of the world when you look into the distance. In addition, the Rabjerg Mile, up to 40 metres high, is one of the highest shifting dunes in Europe.

Danish cuisine

Traditional Danish cuisine makes use of the treasures of the sea, but also lures with meat dishes such as "Stegt Flaesk og Persillesovs", pork slices with a spicy cream sauce. However, Denmark is famous above all for its many variations of the national dish "Smorrebrod", which literally means "butter bread" but has little in common with it. Rather, they are artfully prepared bread dishes with herring, liver pâté, plaice fillet or smoked eel with scrambled eggs. The culinary offer is rounded off by desserts such as the famous cinnamon snails (Kanelsnegl) and "Rod Grod med Flode", a red fruit jelly with cream.

Things to know

Best travel time

With an average of eight hours of sunshine per day in May and June, the stable high weather situation attracts the first sun worshippers to Denmark's coasts. At this time, however, both the Baltic Sea and the North Sea have not yet reached bathing temperature, so beach holidaymakers should book their vacation rental in Denmark for the months of July and August, when average maximum temperatures of up to 22 degrees Celsius invite you to relax. If you want to explore Denmark on foot or by bike or visit the sights of Aarhus and Copenhagen, the months of September and October can also be used for a trip.

Regular events

Denmark's colourful programme of events ranges from music festivals and sporting events to cultural events such as the Flower Festival in Odense and the Hans Christian Andersen Festival with cabaret, dance and comedy sketches. Another special highlight is the Classic Race Aarhus, in which 300 historic racing cars perform a hot dance on the asphalt around the Aarhus Memorial Park. Music lovers can also look forward to highlights such as the folk-rock event "Skagen Festival" and the "Roskilde Festival" in June.
