Recommendations for future guests
“Für Kulturinteressierte sind die Kirchen mit den Fresken der Elmelunde-Werkstätte ein Muss. Es handelt sich dabei um die Kirchen von Elmelunde, Keldby und Fanefjord. / Empfehlenswert ist es auch, sich auf Spurensuche nach den prähistorischen Stätten zu begeben. Enorm beeindruckend ist das knapp 100 Meter lange Grab (?) in Fanefjord, nur wenige 100 Meter im Süden der Kirche. / / Und noch etwas: Mönsklint ist immer eine Reise wert. Nicht nur wegen der Kreidefelsen. Man findet dort und sonst überall an der Küste Fossilien. / / Einkauf: Sehr praktisch ist der Superbrugsen in Stege, wo man so ziemlich alles bei sehr langen Öffnungszeiten erhält.”
What did you especially like about the holiday house?
“Haus ist geräumig, geschmackvoll und weit über das übliche Maß hinaus eingerichtet und ausgestattet. Es sind Mixer und Mixstab vorhanden, viel schönes Geschirr. Sogar ein Weber-Grill. Es eignet sich zum Kochen und sich mit gutem Essen Verwöhnen. In der Form von Slow Food. Denn ein Mikrowellengerät ist nicht vorhanden. Übrigens besitzen wir zu Hause auch kein Mikrowellengerät. / Das Haus eignet sich hervorragend zum Ausspannen und Abschalten, hat nämlich nicht einmal TV oder WLAN. Auch die Handy-4G-Verbindung ist zu meinem Provider nur so, dass man gerade mal WhatsApps schreiben oder Infos einholen kann. Aber zum Video Streamen würde sie nicht ausreichen. So gesehen also wirklich entspannend. / Besonders schätze ich auch den Holzofen für kühle verregnete Tage oder kühle Nächte.”

Susanne - Schwerin  (Familienurlaub mit Kindern, July 2019)
What did you especially like about the holiday house?
“Dieses typische dänische Holzhaus ist liebevoll und einfach eingerichtet. Es bietet einen großen Aufenthaltsraum (Küche/Wohnen) und einen weiteren mit einer Tür verschließbaren Schlafraum. (Der andere Schlafraum ist nur durch einen Vorhang zu verschließen) Der Garten rund um das Haus bietet Sichtschutz und Freiraum zum Spielen. Die zwei Terrassen sind je nach Tageszeit/Sonne zu benutzen, eine davon ist überdacht. Der Kaminofen bietet die Möglichkeit auch an kalten Tagen zu heizen. Besonders schön fanden wir den Alkoven, auf dem bis zu 3 erwachsene Personen nebeneinander Platz finden bzw. 4-5 Kinder, durch das direkt darüber liegende Fenster ist immer Frischluft da und gerade mit kleinen Kindern ist das eine tolle Sache: Familienbett. Für kleinere Kinder bietet das Spielhaus im Garten - bestückt mit Allerlei Spielzeug für draußen - eine willkommene Abwechslung. Die Außendusche bietet bei gutem Wetter eine wirkliche Alternative zu der sehr engen Dusche im sehr kleinen Badezimmer. Die Malven und der Lavendel am Haus wirken einladend und haben uns erfreut.”

“Einige Dinge hätten wir gern vorher gewusst, deswegen möchten wir für zukünftige Gäste unsere Erkenntnisse hier teilen: / Der Backofen in der Küche ohne Spülmaschine funktioniert nicht richtig und erhitzt sich ohne dass die Gradzahl zu regeln ist. Kuchenbacken und Auflauf machen ist kaum möglich (ein Mixer für Teig ist aber vorhanden). Die ganze Herdoberfläche ist nicht kinderfreundlich, da sie sich beim Kochen stark erhitzt. / Falls Sie sich für die eigene Bettwäsche entscheiden, ist es wichtig zu wissen, dass einige Bettdecken quadratisch sind und damit mit unserem Standardmaß der Bettbezüge nicht passt. Zwei der 4 Betten sind sehr weich und eher für kleinere/mittelgroße Kinder geeignet. Die Betten im anderen Schlafraum (nur Vorhang zum Wohnzimmer) sind schmal und kurz (maximal 170 cm Körpergröße). Die Ausstattung des Ferienhauses ist insgesamt leicht abgewohnt, einige Dinge fehlen: Kartoffelstampfer, 1-2 Töpfe mehr, bzw. eine 2. Pfanne, ein zweiter Schrank für Klamotten (wir haben aus der Tasche gelebt), Stauraum im Bad ist gering. Die Dusche im Bad ist wirklich sehr eng und nur für schlanke Menschen geeignet, weil man sonst zwischen Armatur und nassem Duschvorhang klebt. Auf dem Rasen befinden sich ab und zu Disteln, die für Tränen bei den barfuß spielenden Kindern sorgten. Es gibt keinen Sonnenschirm für die Terrasse, keine Fahrräder, keinen Bollerwagen. Bei Ankunft haben wir Sand auf dem großen Bett gefunden und waren uns nicht sicher, wie gründlich gereinigt wurde. (Wir haben dann einige Flächen nochmal gesaugt und gewischt und Decken/Kissen ausgeschüttelt) / Unser Fazit: Insgesamt ist das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis der Unterkunft angemessen. Es sind nur Kleinigkeiten, die uns nur kurz geärgert haben und dann überwog das Urlaubsfeeling. Wir denken, wenn man diese Dinge weiß, die wir beschrieben haben, dann kann man seine Erwartungen anpassen und einen traumhaften Urlaub erleben! Wir haben uns wohlgefühlt und würden das Haus weiterempfehlen! / Noch ein paar Worte zum Ort: / Das Ferienhaus befindet sich in einer großen Ferienhausanlage, die anscheinend schon länger besteht, da alles schön bewachsen und damit kaum einsehbar ist. Wir hatten eher das Gefühl, alleine zu sein (außer wenn bei Nachbars gemäht oder Hecke geschnitten wurde) Es gibt ein kleines Café, welches auch Brötchen verkauft bzw. Zimmer vermietet. Der Strand ist von diesem Haus fußläufig in 15 Minuten erreichbar. Allerdings hat uns der 10 Minuten mit dem Auto zu erreichende Strand links vom Klintholm Hafen eher überzeugt, als der unmittelbar in der Ferienanlage befindliche Strand, der recht schmal ist und auch öfters mit übel riechendem Seetang überzogen war. Zum Steine suchen war er aber ok. Es empfiehlt sich, Fahrräder oder einen Bollerwagen/Laufrad mitzunehmen, da der Weg zum Strand für kleine Kinder doch überraschend lang war und an der Straße entlangführt. Als Ausgangspunkt für Fahrradtouren oder für kleine Touren mit dem Auto (die Entfernungen sind grundsätzlich wirklich kurz - maximal 20 Minuten) bietet sich das Ferienhaus an. Stege oder Borre, wo sich die nächsten Einkaufsmärkte befinden, sind nur 10 Minuten mit dem Auto entfernt. Auch die Kreidefelsen oder das empfehlenswerte Geo-Zentrum sind nur 10 Minuten mit dem Auto entfernt.”

Go for long walks along the coastal landscapes with their ever-changing natural habitats and beautiful views.

If you choose to spend your holiday on Møn, be sure not to miss a visit to Møns Klint - Denmark's highest cliff - towering 128 metres above the sea. If you take the 500 steps down to the beach, an impressive sight awaits you. In addition to the wild natural phenomenon, you will also find wild orchids, falcons and butterflies at the Cliff. Also located at the Cliff is the GeoCenter Møns Klint, definitely well worth a visit, too. The GeoCenter is uniquely- situated right beside this awe-inspiring and beautiful natural phenomenon. Here, you can observe the sealife that lives in the chalky waters, trigger your own coastal landslide, lift mountains and walk through the glaciers of the Ice Age.

During a rental home holiday there are plenty of attractions to visit, whether you're looking for fun at a nearby amusement park or a breathtaking, outdoor experience in the magnificent scenery at Møns Klint.

On Møn, you'll also find Møn Bolcher (Møn Sweets) and Møn Bryghus (Møn Brewery). You can watch them at work at Møn Bolcher as they create their boiled sweets and even try to make your own lollipops.

On the other side of the dyke at Møn lies Bogø. The small island of Bogø is situated between Falster, Møn and Zealand and is definitely well worth a visit. Seamens´houses, sea captains´ villas and the numerous graves of sailors in the cemetery testify to Bogø´s old seafaring history, and today it is still full of charm and atmosphere.

Both islands are just made for an active holiday whether it´s on a bike, in a sailboat or on horseback. You can also get those golfclubs swinging at Møn Golf Center, a beautiful 18-hole course, or try your hand at a fishing trip.

DanCenter asked more than 7,400 guests what attractions they liked best in Denmark last year.

In addition, we have put together our absolute best Denmark holiday tips:

  • Visit the Tirpitz Museum on the southern North Sea, discover the historic idyllic village of Sønderho on the island of Fanø and pay a visit to the island of Mandø, which is only accessible at low tide.
  • At the mid-point of the North Sea, you can admire the 64-metre high "Blåbjerg-Nyminde Klit" sand dune, the tallest in Denmark, visit the culture capital of Hostelbro or the central Danish lake district, which is very reminiscent of the nature in Sweden.
  • Thy national park awaits you on the northern North Sea coast, offering 30 natural attractions. What's more, you can navigate the snaps route around Limfjord and visit the sand-covered church in Skagen.
  • You can go on some great hikes along the Baltic Sea to the south. Firstly, you have the Gendarmstien hiking trail with German-Danish history, and secondly, you can hike around the Haderslev Dam. If you're feeling particularly courageous, you can cross the small belt bridge, which is also called bridge walking. Please only do this accompanied by a guide!
  • In the mid-Baltic coast, you can visit the town of Aarhus.

The new harbour area is particularly interesting, with special architectural features and the ARoS art gallery. The Ejer Bavnehøj is the one of the highest points in Denmark and always worth a visit.

  • Take a trip to the northern Baltic to the island of Læsø and discover the mussel town of Løgstør. For a little history, as well as a great view, visit Bangsbo Fort prison.
  • The archipelago hiking trail will lead you all the way round the island of Funen. There are various ferry connections, which will allow you to "hop" across the Danish South Sea between islands like Funen, Langeland and Æro. The island of Funen is also known for great delicatessen markets.
  • There are more Danish holiday tips for the islands of Zealand, Lolland and Falster. Visit the Odsherred geopark, the Liselund castle park on Møn or the maritime museum in Helsingør.
  • On Denmark's sunshine island of Bornholm, you can take a fantastic bike tour through the Almindingen forest, hike by the rocky Hammershus-Allinge coastline or visit the many farms offering great organic products.

As you can see, a holiday in Denmark is varied and exciting for the whole family.

Low-cost Denmark holiday

There's a holiday home for every budget in Denmark. From the classic Scandinavian holiday home to a large luxury manor, we have everything. Here are a few tips for keeping your holiday in Denmark affordable:

  • Travel in the low-season. In spring and autumn in particular, you will be able to grab an affordable Danish holiday. Our holiday homes start from €249/week.
  • Shop in Germany. Groceries are significantly cheaper in Germany than in Denmark. It therefore makes sense to buy long-lasting groceries and fresh products for the first few days while you're in Germany and take them with you.
  • Cook your own meals. Especially if you're in a larger group, you can save a lot by preparing the food yourself. You will find everything that you need in the holiday home.
  • Use the DanCenter discount available for lots of attractions and sights. For example, you can get 20% discount off entry to LEGOLAND Billund . Just ask at the onsite service office.
  • Book last minute. Shortly before the arrival date, we reduce lots of vacant houses by up to 30%.
  • Stay up to date. Our newsletter and social media channels will keep you informed about special offers and discounts!

Holiday Denmark - in the land of the holiday homes

Holiday home breaks in Denmark are a classic way to get some rest – and each generation is rediscovering just how relaxing it can be to take some time off by the Baltic or North Sea coast. It doesn't matter what time of year it is!

If the typical Danish holiday home didn't exist, you would have to invent it: a house at the seaside – by more than 7,000 kilometres of coastline on the Baltic and North Sea. Denmark has been living the holiday (home) dream for generations – and it is always being reinvented. It all began very modestly – or elegantly, depending on your perspective. The first Danish summer visitors were nobles. They were first able to afford country houses in North Zealand in the 18th century, spending the summer months there. Around 1900, an increasing number of artists moved to authentic fishing towns such as Skagen in North Jutland and Hornbæk on Zealand. To this day, the works of the Skagen Painters and the Funen Painters attract thousands of art enthusiasts to Denmark's museums.

From the beginning of the last century, well-off Danes began building their own real holiday homes. The real success story of the Danish holiday home began in the 1950s, however. As prosperity increased among all classes, construction of the Danish "summer house" (sommerhus) as leisure accommodation soared – while there were approx. 40,000 by around 1950, today there are more than 220,000 holiday homes across the country.

However, it's not just the number of holiday homes that has changed. The character and lifestyle in these Danish holiday escapes are now more comparable with the holiday atmosphere of the 1970s, for example. At that time, the houses became progressively larger, more comfortable and more insulated. What had previously just been a summer holiday home could now become a home at any time of year. Today, these luxury houses of 100 or 120 square metres offer all imaginable amenities, such as washing machines and dishwashers, satellite TV, DVD players, Wi-Fi, whirlpool, sauna and more.

Despite increasing requirements, the "essence" of the Danish holiday home survived regardless of luxury and furnishing: making the dream of living in the middle of nature come true. On your own piece of land in a house that is arranged in a simple and pleasant way, with a clearly Nordic design. With a terrace for bright, endless summer evenings. Or a fire for a cosy atmosphere in autumn and winter. A fully-equipped kitchen where the family can meet and cook together - unlike in hectic day-to-day life at home. The dream brings couples together, brings several generations of families together, as well as friends who want to enjoy the countryside instead of the hustle and bustle of the city.

The choice of holiday homes these days ranges from wellness houses to houses with swimming pools, from houses for pet owners to houses for fishing, from energy saving houses to child-friendly activity houses with a pool table, table football and gaming consoles. The house with a sea view complements the holiday home near the city. You also have the choice of when you travel: Depending on the time of year, a Danish holiday home can be rented for several days or just a long weekend, with arrival on the day of your choice.

The secret behind the Danish word "Hygge".

It is well-known that the Danes have long been among the happiest people in the world. At least, that is what regular surveys suggest, such as the European Social Survey, which tracks the self-assessment of nations each year. There are many reasons why our Nordic neighbours find themselves in this permanent positive state. In other countries, it has been attributed to the Danish hygge phenomenon that the world has feverishly embraced. Even many Danes don't realise that the word "Hygge" has Norwegian origins...
