In the northern part of Djursland there is a great and beautiful nature. Enjoy the big forest areas, river valleys, open landscapes and the many, fantastic coastal areas. The biggest town in the region is Randers – a place of fine shopping possibilities, art, culture and attractions for all the family.
In this unique area there are various types of coasts: the wide sandy beaches to the Kattegat side with high dunes and chalk cliffs where to find fossils, the beach meadows with fabulous flora and the beautiful freshwater fiords, for instance Randers Fiord. This fiord is the mouth of the Gudenå into Kattegat, a paradise for anglers. At various places you can go by a small, charming ferry from coast to coast, this for instance at Mellerup Voer and Udbyhøj.
In Randers, situated in the bottom of Randers Fiord, you can go for art experiences and cultural activities, for instance at the art museum of Randers, which has one the biggest collection of Danish visual arts. The most famous attraction is Randers Regnskov (rain forest), the biggest artificial rain forest in North Europe. You may also visit Graceland, Randers, a true copy of Elvis’s Graceland, USA. In the eastern part of North Djursland is Grenaa, the old market town, a former centre of commerce for this part of Djursland. Take a stroll in the small and charming pedestrian streets of the town or enjoy the wonderful beaches on both sides of the town. From Grenaa you can take the ferry to Anholt (island).
Book a holiday home in the green and hilly East Jutland
East Jutland is formed by the glaciers from the Glacial Age.
Valleys, ravines and deep fiords were formed where the melt
water carved channels, and when the ice disappeared about
14,000 years ago, it left a beautiful and hilly moraine
Along the Kattegat coast, on Djursland og Mols and south of
Århus there are several lovely and family friendly beaches
with fine-grained sand, and the water here is low and rather
calm. But also in the fiords of Horsens and Vejle you will
find fine beaches and quiet water ideal for a swim.
Randers Fjord can be crossed at various points by ferry
boats leaving whenever you need it - this for instance at
Mellerup-Voer and Udbyhøj, and at the mouth of Horsens Fiord
there are ferry boats from Snaptum to Hjarnø and Endelave.
you will find Mols Bjerge, a nature
reserve with heathery hills and juniper bushes. And near Silkeborg and
Skanderborg in the central part of Jutland you can enjoy
Søhøjlandet (the lake area) with the largest river in
Denmark, Gudenå, various beautiful lakes and a gorgeous view
from Himmelbjerget (a hill of 147 metres) in Ry.
Hald Sø with the protected Dollerup Bakker
South of Viborg you will find Hald Sø with the protected
Dollerup Bakker (Dollerup hills), an unspoilt and grandiose
landscape. And west of Viborg is Kongenshus Mindepark (memorial
park) in the middle of the Jutland moor covered with heater
as far as the eye can see. The earth is sandy and
calcareous, and in Mønsted and Daubjerg Kalkminer (limestone
caves) a production took place for centuries. The
production stopped, but the caves are open for visitors.
Here you can visit the deep mine galleries and the huge
colony of bats.
Denmark's largest combe
Grejsdalen north west of
Vejle is the largest combe in Denmark. The area is unique and beautiful with wooded steep
slopes on both sides of the small river called Grejs Å. Also
Vejle Ådal offers some splendid nature experiences.
The royal boroughs with proud traditions
The eastern part of Jutland is characterised bythe many royal boroughs located by a fiord. From south to north you will find e.g. Aabenraa, Haderslev, Kolding, Vejle, Horsens, Randers, Aalborg - and not least Aarhus, where you will find world class culture.
South of Limfjorden
A brief ferry ride from Hals to Egense takes us further on to the fishing port Øster Hurup, beautifully located at the Kattegat between the natural area Lille Vildmose and Mariager Fiord. Here you will find
perhaps the most child-friendly beach in Denmark, where the children love the shallow and clam waters.
Halfway between the German border and Skagen – in the middle of Denmark
you will find Jutland's "nose" Djursland. Besides a large selection of family attractions like the amusement park Djurs Sommerland,
the tropical zoo Randers Regnskov, Kattegatcentret, Ree Park Safari and
Skandinavisk Dyrepark, the national park Nationalpark Mols Bjerge and
the peninsula's very childfriendly beaches are some of the highlights of Djursland.
From Aarhus to the border
Jutland's capital Aarhus is with the art gallery Aros and the museum Den Gamle By very well-known for the Danish people. A secret gem just south of Aarhus, the coast of Juelsminde which is one of the most scenic and varied in Denmark. You will find forest-clad slopes and authentic natural beaches north of Vejle Fiord and sandy beaches at Juelsminde. From 1864 to 1920 the Danish/German border was at the old fishing village Hejlsminde that has many holiday homes and a marina today. The closeness to Germany is visible from Kolding and to the south. Obviously most visible in Sønderborg and Dybbøl Mølle, which were the centre of the war in 1864. The list of attractions - historic, cultural, fishing and bathing waters - are matched by the number of the large selection of holiday homes on the small island Als and near Flensborg Fiord, which gives you a location close to everything.

What is a cleaning audit charge?
We charge customers a small cleaning audit fee to prepare the room for the next guest, even as some outgoing guests prefer to clean the room themselves. Are such guests still required to pay a cleaning charge? Yes. Please let us explain.
While we appreciate guests cleaning the room themselves, we nonetheless conduct an audit to ensure that the room is in excellent shape. The cleaning audit fee we levy is for the time and effort involved in checking that our cleaning standards have been met, so that we can provide our customers with the best experience.
