Put Djursland on your Holiday Agenda
The hilly lowland peninsula of Djursland is located at the entrance to the Baltic Sea between Denmark and Sweden.
Renting a holiday home in Djursland puts you in the midst of family fun for all ages regardless of your interests; there is something here for everyone to enjoy.
While agriculture and fishing have long been the main sources of income for the area, many new attractions have been added to bring visitors from around the world. Prehistoric relics dating from the Nordic Stone Age are found here as well as new and modern cities and parks.
Surrounded by water on three sides, the mild temperate climate makes enjoying those waters available from late spring to autumn. The northern coast has several child-friendly sandy beaches and shallow waters. The mostly stony beaches of the eastern coast are popular with anglers and scuba divers, while the south coast has a mix of sand beaches and rocky ones. With the wide choice of beaches, most are not crowded as in other holiday destinations.
Nature rules in Djursland. Pay a visit to Mols Bjerge National Park and learn about the plants and wildlife native to the area. There are walking paths and bike trails that enable you to get up close and personal.
The Kattegatcentret will amaze and awe young and old alike with its shark aquarium and wildlife center. Randers Regnskov contains animal parks, an aquarium, and a rain forest. Yet more wildlife can be found at the Munkholm Zoo and Skandinavisk Dyrepark.
For an adrenaline rush and lots of excitement, all ages will love Djurs Sommerland. With over 60 rides, including Denmark's largest and wildest roller coasters, this amusement park will keep the whole family entertained. There is also a huge Aqua Park for even more fun.
To get a first-hand look at how seafarers waged war over 100 years ago, a visit to the Fregatten Jylland is a must. Hands-on experiences aboard the completely refurbished frigate include helping load the cannons and climbing the rigging (with an experienced climbing instructor) and hearing the explosions as the cannons are fired. There is an onboard museum tracing Denmark's seafaring history. A truly one-of-a-kind adventure!
When a little quiet time is called for, check out one or more of the several museums located in Djursland. An active museum the whole family will enjoy is the Green Museum. There are indoor and outdoor playgrounds, traditional Danish livestock races, or take part in some historical cooking in one of the four kitchens that cover the periods from the 1600s to more modern times.
Moesholm Put & Take is beautifully located in the middle of Djursland. In the 12000m2 large fishing lake you can catch rainbow trout, river trout, gold trout, perch and eel, and by the lake you find excellent fish cleaning facilities with ample fresh water. Restrooms are located nearby. Along the lake shore tables and benches makes it easy for you to enjoy a picnick. Look forward to a perfect day with the family.
With so much to see and do, a memory-making holiday in Djursland should definitely be on the agenda!
