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.
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...
