Gitta - Parchim  (Urlaub mit größeren Kindern, October 2019)
Recommendations for future guests
“Rottehullet / Søndergade 1 / Hou, Nordjylland, Denmark”
What did you especially like about the holiday house?
“Wir haben das Haus Anfang Oktober gemietet. Das Haus verfügt über ein größes Grundstück und ist sehr gemütlich eingerichtet. Das Badezimmer war sehr geräumig und es war genug Platz vorhanden. Internet funktonierte einwandfrei und der Gang zur Ostsee war nicht allzu lang. Sehr viele Rehe konnte man vom Haus auf beobachten. / Da es um diese Jahreszeit doch etwas kuhl wurde, haben wir den Kamin benutzt. Kostenloses Brennholz war sehr vieles da. Unten die Räume bekam man sehr schnell warm. Oben jedoch leider nicht, da wären in den Schlafzimmern Heizungen angebracht. Im Sommer würden wir dieses Haus jederzeit wieder mieten. / Trotz der Kälte in den oberen Räumen, hatten wir eine sehr schöne Woche in dem Haus verbraucht. / Der Weg nach Hou war auch nicht sehr weit, sodass man zu Fuss einkaufen gehen konnte und einen langen Spaziergang in der Natur verbringen konnte.”

Viola - Bremen  (Urlaub mit Freunden, July 2017)
What did you especially like about the holiday house?
“Die ruhige Lage, windgeschützte Terrasse, bequeme Betten, moderne Einrichtung. Rehe, Hasen und Vögel sind durch den Garten/Wiese gelaufen.”
Wolfgang - Borken  (Urlaub mit Freunden, July 2017)

Verena - Wesel  (Urlaub mit Kindern und Freunden, July 2016)
How do you like the holiday home's location?
“Die Angaben zu der Entfernung Stimmen nicht immer. Scheinen luftlinie zu sein. Was aber nicht wirklich schlimm ist.”
Gabi - Magdeburg  (Urlaub mit Kindern und Freunden, July 2016)
What did you especially like about the holiday house?
“kleine gemütliche Schlafzimmer, offene Küche mit großer Essecke und überdachter Sitzplatz auf der Terrasse.”
How do you like the holiday home's location?
“Die Lage und Entfernung des Hauses zum Strand entsprach der Katalogausschreibung. Es sind Fahrräder vorhanden, um zum Brugsen zu fahren. Der Hafen ist auch gut zu Fuss zu erreichen in ca. 10 Minuten. / Das Haus liegt sehr ruhig und idyllisch, es ist für Erholungssuchende geeignet. Eine große Wiese lädt zum Spielen ein!”
Cornelia - Blankenburg  (Familienurlaub mit Kindern, August 2015)
How do you like the holiday home's location?
“Die Angabe mit 450m Entfernung zum Strand war korrekt, entsprach aber der Luftlinie. Bedingt dadurch, dass zwei Häuserreihen mit Grundstücksabgrenzung zwischen Ferienhaus und Strand lagen und es nur drei freie (öffentliche) Zugangswege durch die Dünen gab, betrug der Weg zum Strand dennoch mindestens 10-15 Minuten. Für kleine Kinder wäre diese Zusatzinfo hilfreich. Wir erhielten zum Ferienhaus nur einen Satz Schlüssel. Mit größeren, selbstständigen Kindern oder Partnern mit unterschiedlichen Plänen ist somit eine gute Abstimmung notwendig. Da es unser erster Urlaub in Dänemark war, haben wir versäumt, nach einem Zweitschlüssel zu fragen. Eventuell hätte es den auch gegeben -unser Fehler, Also besser gleich bei der Ankunft daran denken (:-). Mehrere kleinere, aber ausreichende Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gab es in naher Umgebung (ca. 2 -6 km). Diese waren in der Infomappe zum Haus angegeben. Auch eine Tankstelle (Automat, nur mit EC oder Kreditkarte) war direkt in der Nähe.”
What did you especially like about the holiday house?

How do you like the holiday home's location?
“De vakantie woning lag op loop afstand van het strand. een kort stukje rijden naar een goede supermarkt. Restaurants ook niet al te ver met de auto”
What did you especially like about the holiday house?

The whole building is in black and white.

About the area

About Nord-Øst Jylland

The North East Jutland is mainly known for its cosy towns on the eastern coast, for instance Hals Sæby and Frederikshavn. Take your car and go by the coast road to Hals at the mouth of the Limfiord afterwards continuing to Frederikshavn. On your way you drive through a varied landscape very near to the coast. The water along the north eastern coast is calmer than that of the famous West coast so you can easily find some fine and children friendly beaches here.

On your way you will find cosy Sæby which became market town in 1524. Today Sæby is a tourist destination, and the many tourists visit its old houses and small and cosy streets. You can also visit the Sæby Museum, Sæby Vandmølle (water mill) or Sæby Mini town – an outdoor exhibition where a 1:10 scale model of the old houses of Sæby have been recreated. In Frederikshavn you can get the feeling of being in a “big town”. This is a place that throughout many years was a very important heart of navigation which is easy to be seen when looking at the many historical buildings. Today you can go by ferry from here to Oslo in Norway and to Göteborg in Sweden, but you can also go by the ferry to Læsø.

In north east Jutland you will find Voergaard Slot (castle) situated behind the widest moat in Denmark. It is one of the finest and most well-preserved castles from the Renaissance. In the castle there is an outstanding collection of European art and furniture, among other things some paintings by Goya, Rubens, Rapahel and El Greco, and personal effects from Napoleon the 1st, Louis XIV and Marie-Antoinette.

About Nordjylland

Rent a holiday home in Northern Jutland - experience the unique and magnificent nature to be found here

There´s a very good reason why Northern Jutland has become one of Denmark's most sought after holiday destinations when it comes to renting Holiday homes. With more than 1,000 rental properties/holiday homes spread out along the Northern Jutland coastline, DanCenter offers a wide selection of rental homes for all all types of holidays, in all sizes and price ranges, no matter whether you are looking for a place that has room for 2, 10 or more guests. Northern Jutland has some of the most unique and magnificent scenery in the entire country. From the North Sea with its wide sandy beaches to the impressive drifting dunes along the Kattegat, without travelling very far, you can explore very different environments that are each unique examples of

Danish natural landscape. And you don't have to spend every day at the beach, splashing around in the waves - the scenery is there for you to enjoy all year round, with plenty of hiking opportunities for long walks in the fresh air.

A historic trip to the North Sea

Near the North Sea, there are many popular holiday home areas close to the following towns: Blokhus, Løkken and Lønstrup. Many of these houses are located in peaceful surroundings, just a short distance from the water, and can accommodate from four people up to larger groups of up to twenty-one. Along the coast, you will find a number of small towns with supermarkets and shops, so no matter where you are, you´ll never have far to go to the nearest shops. Along this stretch, you´ll also find one of Northern Europe's most beautiful bathing beaches that attracts water-lovers to the holiday homes in the area. The size and width of this child-friendly beach means it never feels overcrowded. On some parts of the beach, you can find several fascinating relics of the past such as abandoned bunkers from World War II. Hanstholm is home to the historical Museumcenter Hantsholm, where you can explore Northern Europe´s largest fortifications from World War II, while both Hirtshals and Skagen further north, also have bunker museums where you can experience the underground fortresses from the inside.

Rich in national parks and attractions, Northern Jutland

is also home to Denmark's first official national park which is situated in Thy and extends all the way from Agger to Hanstholm. Here, you will find a variety of landscapes - from vast forests and moors to meandering dune plantations, home to many species of rare plants, and animals. In the park, there are both bicycle routes and hiking trails with winding paths and good vantage points. If you feel like getting out of the house for a change, you can enjoy your packed lunch in one of the shelters or lay-bys along the route. One of the reasons why Northern Jutland is so popular as a travel destination is because of the wide variety of attractions that are evenly distributed throughout the area. In addition to the magnificent natural surroundings, an attraction in themselves, you will find both aquariums, amusement parks and museums that will provide many hours of entertainment for the whole family, both indoors and outdoors.

Fårup Summerland, one of the most popular attractions on the list, has been providing fun for all ages in the large forest between Blokhus and Løkken since 1975. This popular theme park has continued to expand since it opened and today offers more than fifty different rides for everyone for both

young and old - and those who don't scare easily! The park features some of Denmark's fastest roller coasters and also has a water park with everything you can think of, with room for water babies of all ages! DanCenter offers various discounts on some of Denmark's best attractions, including Fårup Summerland.

For the animal lovers, there are also plenty of places to visit. On the east coast, you can view the wildlife in the Lille Voldmose Nature Park, while The North Sea Oceanarium in Hirtshals and Aalborg Zoo is also open to guests all year round. Here, as you walk around, you'll be surrounded by hundreds of amazing species of animals from the sea, air and land. No matter where your holiday home is located in Northern Jutland, it won't be far to the nearest priceless experience.

Holiday homes in beautiful Skagen

Skagen is home to several landmarks that are well-worth the drive - whatever the distance. This where you´ll find Skagen´s Lighthouse, which at 46 metres tall makes it one of Denmark's highest. In the same area, are the Skagen Museum and Saint Laurentii Church, better
known as the Sand-buried Church. Several centuries of drifting sand has buried the present mystical church until only the tower remains standing among the trees in the large dune plantation. It's no wonder there are so many holiday homes in Skagen. The beautiful natural surroundings go without saying, but the town of Skagen itself exudes a very special atmosphere that reflects the local culture. Hungry stomachs will quickly be satisfied in this true eldorado of dining options that includes everything from traditional inns and smorgasbord restaurants to fine gourmet food outlets and fishmongerers. Between Skagen and Frederikshavn, lie the desert-like shifting sand dunes known as Råbjerg Mile, the largest of its kind in Europe, just waiting to provide you with a unique hike revealing far more hidden facets along the way than you could ever imagine. Råbjerg Mile is divided into several different smaller areas, each with their own fauna and function in the distinctive landscape. All this is waiting for you when you visit Skagen in a holiday home.

Experience untamed nature at Lønstrup

Lønstrup is a small town in Vendsyssel located 15 kilometres from Hirtshals. The town used to be a fishing village, but today there are only a few fishermen left in the boatyard who fish just for fun. However, there are still plenty of fish in the water, so there are lots of opportunities for spending an afternoon angling from the stone breakwaters that have been erected to protect the coast. Lønstrup, in particular, is known for its harsh but beautiful nature with steep cliffs, that are more than 70 metres high in some places. The city is also home to several galleries and craftsmen (potters, glass blowers, painters, sculptors etc.). We have a wide selection of holiday home rentals in Lønstrup, which is why we are sure that we have just what you need.

Holiday rentals in Blokhus

Blokhus, is a small town on the northwestern coast of Jutland. The white sandy beaches are the town's biggest attraction and one of the reasons that a very large number of tourists and holidaymakers visit the area every year. Not far from Blokhus is Fårup Summerland - a very popular attraction and one of the largest amusement parks in Denmark. Another of the town's attractions is the 642-acre Blokhus Dune Plantation that offers unique nature experiences for children and adults. The dune plantation includes a natural playground and picnic area, as well as a natural baking oven, hiking trails, mountain biking routes and a dog forest where dogs can run freely off the leash. And let's not forget the annual sand sculpture festival in Blokhus (at the old school in Hune).

Surfing and water sports in Løkken

With its more than 1,500 inhabitants Løkken is one of the larger towns on the northwestern coast of Jutland. Originally, Løkken was an important fishing village - with settlements dating back to the end of the 17th century - but today the town is a busy holiday resort with plenty of holiday homes for rent and it is a favourite tourist destination of both Danes and foreign visitors. Løkken´s excellent location on the west coast of Jutland has transformed the town in recent years into a mecca for watersports enthusiasts, and all those who enjoy frolicking in the, at times, fierce waves of the North Sea. There are many great opportunities here for swimming, windsurfing, kite surfing, kayaking and so on - for both children and adults alike. Another spot you mustn't miss is Klitmøller. Off Klitmøller is where some of Denmark´s biggest waves are generated. A little bit of paradise for experienced windsurfers. And a breathtaking experience for everyone else as they watch the surfers hone their skills on the board. If you're feeling adventurous, there are plenty of places to learn how it's done on-site.

Holiday home rentals in Northern Jutland are not just for the summer.

Holiday rentals in Northern Jutland are definitely becoming more and more popular, so it is wise to plan your holiday well in advance whether you are looking for a holiday home in Skagen, Blokhus, Løkken, Lønstrup or in one of the other popular holiday resorts. Outside the main summer season,
a trip to the coasts along Northern Jutland can be something quite out of the ordinary. In winter time, many of the attractions in Northern Jutland throw their doors open for seasonal activities both indoors and outdoors, but there's nothing wrong with simply grabbing the chance to curl up inside a nice cosy chalet with family and friends over a cup of hot cocoa.
