Arrild is a rather small village in the southern part of Jutland. The village is particularly known for its holiday park consisting of about 400 holiday cottages and a camping site. As the village is situated very close to the German border, the village has a lot of German holiday guests during summer, but the place also attracts many Danish guests.
Arrild is surrounded by beautiful nature areas, among others Hønning Plantation and Lovrup Skov (wood). Furthermore Arrild is situated close to the North Sea and its beautiful and child friendly beaches. From here it is easy to go visiting Rømø (small island) where they have an annual kite festival and a jazz festival. If you prefer to go for a swim, you have the finest wide sandy beaches within close reach.
Should you like to visit some of the towns nearby, both Aabenraa and Sønderborg is worth a visit. In Aabenraa you may visit the Aabenraas Museum/Sønderjyllands Søfartmuseum (maritime museum) or Brundlund Slot (castle), the latter dating back to 1411. Part of the castle is now an art museum.
Sønderborg is the largest town in the southern part of Jutland, beautifully situated on both sides of the Als Sund (sound). In this area there are still traces of the wars between Denmark and the Prussian army in the 19th century, among other places at Dybbøl Mølle. In the Dybbøl Banke History Centre the famous and fatal battle of Dybbøl Mølle 1864 is recreated before your eyes.
