Recommended Attractions in Denmark

Once home to Hans Christian Andersen, Denmark retains a sense of fairy-tale charm. Discover countless castles, flowering gardens and quaint seaside villages that have sparked the imaginations of many for centuries. Little ones will also delight at the original LEGOLAND in Billund, Aarhus Open-Air Museum and Odense Zoo, whilst adults will love the modish architecture, bars and boutiques in cosmopolitan Copenhagen. Of course, the landscape provides its own playground for young and old. In South Zealand, we recommend a visit to Camp Adventure, where you can climb an observation tower 45 metres above the ground, climb from treetop to treetop or even have a go on Europe’s longest zipline.

Active self-catering holidays in Denmark

Everyone who enjoys active holidays will be fascinated by Denmark’s wide range of sports activities including biking, fishing, surfing, hiking, golf and cycling. With such a dramatic and beautiful landscape, renting brings so much opportunity for adventure. Most holiday homes are within walking distance to the beach as you are never more than 50 kilometres away from the sea and many even include free access to local water parks. NOVASOL has a large portfolio of privately owned holiday cottages to meet every budget, meaning there is always opportunity to spend a little more on spontaneous activities!

Danish culture

Time and time again, Denmark is deemed as the ‘happiest nation on earth’. Similar to the rest of Scandinavia, this bike-loving country is strongly protective of the environment, and this is inbuilt into local lifestyle. As well as enjoying sports, the Danes seem to strike a perfect balance with a delicious cuisine and a healthy appetite for social drinking. The Danish culture is also underscored by a pursuit of ‘Hygge’ – which can be described as cosiness, comfort with loved ones, laughter and a warm atmosphere. Denmark also has a great appreciation and a rich history of literature and art, just waiting for you to tap into on your self-catering holiday. A huge variety of galleries and museums offer a selection of insights into Danish culture across the country – whether that be Viking art, modern design or traditional craftwork.

Danish cuisine – Denmark cottages

Danish food is heavily protein based with delicious fish and seafood dishes being a part of standard fare. This typically includes cod, lobster, eel, herring, salmon and shrimp. With NOVASOL holiday lettings in Denmark being located near fishing areas, you may even be able to catch your own dinner and prepare a meal in the style of Danish cuisine. Also keep an eye out for dishes such as meatballs, Smørrebrød (open faced rye bread sandwiches) and warming soups. Desserts to try include sweet rice pudding with berries, apple doughnuts and spiced biscuits. Enjoy a relatively cheap holiday by exploring local shops and markets and preparing some of your own meals at your holiday home in Denmark.

Popular areas while self-catering in Denmark

Before booking your holiday in our Denmark villas, you should find out some more about the best destinations for you and your family and things to do in Denmark. In general, Bornholm, Blavand, Limfjord, Römö and Skagen are the most popular areas for both tourists and locals, whilst Denmark’s cities provide an altogether different type of holiday. Rent holiday lettings near Copenhagen, Aalborg, Roskilde or Aarhus – 2017’s European Capital of Culture – where you can explore the marvels of Danish life, art, customs and traditions from a more cosmopolitan standpoint.

Treasure Island Escapes

Denmark consists of the peninsula Jutland and almost 500 gemlike islands out of which 100 are completely inhabited, allowing nature to reign. The islands include Bornholm in the Baltic Sea, Zealand, Funen and Lolland-Falster. It has a coastline of 7,300 km and the landscape is well cultivated with beautiful sand dunes and bays on the West Coast, whilst the East Coast has long inlets. The mainland here is Jutland but the capital remains to be Copenhagen in Zealand and the Faroe Islands and Greenland are both members of the national community. NOVASOL has cottages in Denmark on almost all islands. So no matter where you rent your holiday lettings, you are sure to explore this wonderful country at your own leisure.

Enjoy impressive nature from your holiday cottages

Denmark is not only blessed with abundant countryside, but also with a long and intricate coastline, numerous islands, wide beaches and sandy dunescapes topped with twinkling lighthouses. Enjoy the incredible natural beauty plus a wealth of activities that reap the benefits of a well-cared-for environment. See the country in all its glory on foot, by bike or on water and reward yourself with a delicious Smørrebrød.
