Summer holiday in North Jutland

Your summer holiday doesn't have to take you across borders. You can simply head to North Jutland. Here you'll find a selection of some of Denmark's best and coziest holiday homes.

You can smell the barbecue in the air, feel the warmth of the asphalt through your soles as you head down to the local ice cream stand, and lose yourself in the words of your favorite book before falling into a well-deserved afternoon nap right there on the dreamy bed.

Week 29 in Skagen

Skagen's peak season undeniably reaches its peak in week 29. During this week, the population increases by 50,000 guests, along with the number of expensive cars and rosé wine!

So, there's no risk of getting bored when you visit the town during this week. You can find a holiday home for week 29 with us right here.

The beaches of North Jutland

The days when we embrace summer the most are the days when all we have to do is lie on a towel in the sand, interrupted only by trips into the waves in a shuttle service. The beaches of North Jutland offer you some truly unique opportunities. As you head north, the country tapers, and the distance from coast to coast becomes shorter. So, whether you choose a holiday home on the east or west side, the best beach is never far away. Especially unique is the tip of Denmark at Grenen. Here, you can stand with one foot in both the North Sea and the Kattegat at the same time. But beware, the currents can be strong, and swimming is strongly discouraged.

If the summer weather fails

On days when the weather doesn't scream sunshine, sandy beaches, and soft serve ice cream, it's good to have a plan B. Something where you're not dependent on the weather, but where you can fill your backpack with good memories, rain or shine. Skagen offers a mountain of possibilities just waiting for you to conquer it.

The Skagen Painters

Skagen has a long history. Originally, it was a fishing community, but what truly made Skagen nationally famous was when a group of artists established a colony in the northern Jutland. The Skagen Painters have a significant place in Skagen's story today, and you can see that at the Skagen Museum. There, a large number of the old works are exhibited, each showing a glimpse of what Skagen looked like.

Skagen Teddy Bear Museum

If the whole family isn't keen on art and history, and if there are even members with childish souls, there are fortunately other museums in Skagen that might be more suitable. One example is the Skagen Teddy Bear Museum. There, you'll find a museum filled with teddy bears living their own lives. The many bears have moved into an old Skagen house, where they enjoy themselves in every way imaginable. The museum has about 100 different displays, each hiding a special story told by the bears themselves.

Bolcheriet Skagen

After a day of activities, Bolcheriet in Skagen is a great place to visit. Here, you can see and experience how the classic candies are made with good craftsmanship. And most importantly, you can buy a bag to take home and enjoy with your evening coffee.
