Come on and go on a pirate raid in this year’s new amusement,
Piraten, which is Denmark’s largest and fastest roller coaster! You
will be lifted to a height of 32 metres and will really get wind in your
sails when going downwards with a top speed of crazy 90 km/h.
The country’s scariest roller coaster is not for squeamish landlubbers!
And if there are a few of those in your crew anyway, they can go
exploring in the new Piratland for the duration of the ride.
With more than 60 amusements for children of all ages and a giant
waterworld, Djurs Sommerland is the best place to spend a great
summer day with the whole family.
The beautiful theme lands make the park an experience for all senses,
with everything from tickling in your stomach in Thors Hammer and
Ørnen to the imaginative activities in the gigantic playland Western
Playland, surrounded by gun smoke and gold diggers. If you prefer
to get wet, you can take the plunge over the giant waterfall on
Colorado River or visit the Waterworld, where The Wave puts
young surfers to the test and where the water slides have
dizzying rides for any water freak – adult, in-between or little.
For the smallest children, there are plenty of offers around the park
and a whole Lilleputland with fun amusements like Karlo’s Taxi and
On a lovely summer day for the whole family, there should also be
time and space to unwind and enjoy a quiet moment. You can easily
find this in the park’s large, green oases, where you can barbecue
and enjoy the food that you have brought along or let yourselves be
tempted by the park’s eating venues and restaurants.
You should also remember that a visit to Djurs Sommerland is as
easy as a walk in the park. When you have paid the entrance fee,
all amusements are free. Here, you do not have to spend time or
money on trip cards, you just have to play, experience and have
– we love children off all ages!

Djursland – up to your
Owing to the extensive coastline, Djursland is a popular spot for
anyone fond of water activities. Djursland boasts long, child friendly,
silver sandy beaches; a perfect playground for the entire family. And
the many Blue Flags guarantee clean and clear water for bathing.
Djursland offers innumerable opportunities for the experienced
angler as well as the novice. The sea fishing in Kattegat is excellent
– and just on our doorstep – and there are fishing boats to take you
to the best fishing grounds. If you feel more at ease on solid ground,
there are countless good – and scenic - spots for fishing along the
coast, as well as fresh water fishing from streams. What more could a
seasoned angler wish for? In the tourist offices the staff will be happy
to help you with information on fine fishing waters, the fish in season
at any given time and the resident species in the local waters.
Bathed in the colours of the weather, Kattegatcentret is a brilliant
example of pure Scandinavian architecture all year round. With its
maritime blue-white lines, it integrates beautifully and simply with
the coast line – and at the same time, it sticks effectively out in the
Kattegat, which practically laps upon the foundations of the building,
and the ocean in general, is the theme of the building’s architecture.
The house opens up towards its surroundings: Ocean, sky and coast,
which all form a whole.
The exiting experience centre at the coast of Kattegat is inhabited
by domestic as well as more exotic water-living species. Right from
seals to rays and the 2.5-metre sharks – an experience beyond the
ordinary. It is also quite time-robbing when the children lie on their
stomachs to fish for crabs with the biologist on a summer day.
You can smell the ocean here – and the screams of the seagulls
fill the air. Take your family on an exiting, active and educational
At Kattegatcentret, you will get in close contact
with sharks. In the tunnel through the shark tank,
there are only 6 centimetres between you and the
sand tiger sharks. You can also dive among Danish
sharks and fish in the Oceanarium. In the diving
bell, you will be sent on a journey several thousand
metres below the surface of the ocean! A journey
that will take you through coral reefs and close to
whales and sharks – not to mention the close
encounter with the amazing creatures
of the deep sea. A little scary – but very exiting.
Outside in the lagoon, the seals play around –
experience them during feeding and see how well
you can train a seal. At the new experience tanks
of Kattegatcentret, you and your family can learn
more about life in the ocean. You can also get an
”up-close and personal experience” with a diving
suit, a mask, flippers and a snorkel and go on a
snorkelling trip in Kattegat and see the current fish
We look forward to showing you everything. You
can learn a lot. Maybe you will become a little wet
and very tired. But we are certain that you will
Welcome to an ocean of experiences.
for yachting enthusiasts
Djursland is so small that you are never far from the ocean. Or you
can travel to the ocean in a very short time. The wide horizon of the
ocean and its amazing force and beauty have great influence on
your mental state. An ocean close by for gazing at, and for sailing,
diving and swimming in.
Djursland has ocean on three sides. Thus, it is easy to visit Djursland
by boat. If you sail here in your own boat, there are several excellent
Complete with bathing and toilet facilities, the frigate’s wooden
ships’ harbour is the ideal port of call for yachting enthusiasts. Here
you can enjoy the unique atmosphere under the masts of the frigate
and see what is going on onboard the ship and in the shipyard. The
harbour is an official free harbour of the Wooden Ships’ Association
entitling members to spend the first two days at the harbour for free.
From the wooden ship’s harbour, it is only a walk of a few hundred
metres to Ebeltoft, the ancient medieval town with its cobbled
streets, its quaint rustic houses and its famous landmark, the old
town hall. If that is not atmosphere... Not only that, but Ebeltoft is
the only Danish town and port on the east coast that is, in fact,
situated on a western shore!
The marinas in Grenaa and Bønnerup have all the facilities that
yachting enthusiasts need. Both marinas are situated near excellent
beaches as well as shops, restaurants and playgrounds.
Furthermore, both places have holiday homes for rental, situated
directly in the marina.
The marinas are connected to fishing harbours and Grenaa also has
a ferry harbour and an industrial harbour. The environment is
bustling with life – especially in the summer months – where many
choose the exiting and idyllic harbour environment for their walks.
– angling for everybody!
The “nose of Jutland” is dripping with one good angling spot after
The good thing about Djursland is that it offers angling opportunities
for everybody all year round. Whether you are an experienced
angler with a penchant for fly fishing and sea trout or you prefer to
tempt the flatfish with a juicy lugworm, you will literally find a sea of
good angling spots. To the north is Randers Fjord with its silvery sea
trout and fat fiord flounders and to the east you have the classic sea
trout sites such as Gjerrild, Fornæs and Glatved.
If you would like to try your luck at freshwater angling, the
Kolindsund canals offer some of the best sea trout angling in
Denmark. Ebeltoft Bay is not just a great place for tourists in the
summer. The rest of year, the bay is also full of flatfish and sea trout
that swim above the sandy ocean bed, which is high in feed. The
same is true for the waters off Kalø Bay where the glossy sea trout
flock. If you want to try your luck along the beautiful coast of
Djursland, then visit the website with detailed descriptions in
Danish, English and German of all the best angling sites.
life on the frigate
The 144 years old war ship has become the site of a modern tourist
attraction. Every day during the peak season, you can experience
how the canons weighing several tons were handled when the
frigate was in war. You can also experience spindrift from the
frigate’s three-masted cargo vessel Barkassen, which could carry
100 soldiers at full speed.
bullets, cannons and crinolines
Learn more about the armouring of the frigate; from the smallest
pistols to the 44 30-pound cannons. Fregatten Jylland was
Denmark’s largest war ship. It was the home of a whole arsenal of
deadly weapons. In the hall Prinsgemal Henriks Hal, you will get
really close to the life onboard when the frigate worked as a royal
yacht for the father-in-law of Europe, King Christian 9.
a complete maritime environment
On Frigate Island, you can experience how wooden ships are placed
on stocks, repaired and sent to sea again at the Fregatten Jylland’s
own shipyard for wooden ships. The shipyard’s carpenters, smiths
and painters also maintain the frigate and it is a pleasure to see the
beautiful workmanship everywhere onboard. The maritime
atmosphere is completed with the frigate harbour that different
wooden ships constantly moor at and sail from.
celebrate in a maritime environment,
wedding, milestone birthday...
On Fregatten Jylland, you can give your guests an experience that
they will not soon forget. For any small or large occasion, we can
offer lovely surroundings for small as well as large parties. With the
café and restaurant manager in front, the staff of Fregattens Café
& Restaurant is ready to combine food and wine, from light
arrangements to gourmet gastronomy. From Fregatten Jylland’s
maritime and modern buildings, there is a fantastic view of the
wooden ship’s harbour, the Fregatten Jylland and to the other side
of Ebeltoft Vig, where Mols Bjerge form the background. You will
not find a more beautiful sunset. We can accommodate parties of
up to 300 guests. www.fregatten-jylland.dk

– a world of animals
Djursland is nothing short of a world of wildlife where animals
are well looked after. In harmony with nature and in the right
surroundings. In addition to the animals in nature, Djursland has
3 exciting wildlife parks and Kattegatcentret with its sharks and
other exiting creatures of the sea.
Skandinavisk Dyrepark is located near the town of Kolind in the
middle of Djursland. The park is well-known for the many individual
parks it has laid out for polar bears, brown bears, wolves and moose.
All the parks have been assessed by experts as being some of the
largest and best in the world. So good in fact that the concept is
being copied by other zoos and wildlife parks. Watching polar bears,
brown bears, wolves and moose roam free is a unique experience,
but the wildlife park also offers many other exciting wildlife experiences.
The park has approximately 300 animals, distributed across more
than 20 different Scandinavian species.
At Skandinavisk Dyrepark, time flies by as you watch the animals,
join in the activities, play at the playground – or visit the café and

space and exiting natural environments for the wild animals of the
safari park. You and your family can easily spend a whole day among
animals, activities and nature at Ree Park – Ebeltoft Safari.
Go exploring among large sharks – try it, if you dare.
There is the thrill when you move into the tunnel and are only a few
centimetres from the rays and the large, intimidating sand tiger
sharks. It is fascinating to have a closer look at the sharks and rays in
the large shark tank. And you get a nice feeling of these terrifying
predators when you stand on the revolving sidewalk and let it
transport you through the tunnel under the tank.
The decoration of the shark tank has been made as realistic as
possible and shows the environment around a tropical lagoon
bounded by a barrier reef with beautiful corals and the sudden
drop into the open, deep sea.
The construction with two water depths means that the shark tank
can accommodate grownup sharks as well as baby sharks and the
beautiful, richly coloured fish of the coral reef.
Kattegatcentret has found the very best story to tell about life at sea.
That is the story of the sharks. Extremely fascinating animals!
It is always a guaranteed success to watch the sharks.

and Scheel lived here, and for a long time, they were among the
largest and richest estate owners.

Rosenholm Slot is a beautiful location for many events The beautiful garden room at Clausholm Castle Sculpture garden at Det jydske Haveselskab
In April 1559, Jørgen Rosenkrantz acquired the farm Holm outside
Hornslet from the King. In the following years, he built a castle on
that spot and named it Rosenholm after his family. The family
Rosenkrantz has owned the castle ever since, and today Rosenholm
is the Danish house which has been in the possession of the same
family for the longest time. During the period 1740-45, the castle
was rebuilt and the large park covering approx. 5 hectares was laid
out complete with lime tree avenues and bowers and beech hedges.
The rose garden surrounding the fountain is an enchanting place.
The castle is fully furnished with hundreds of items of furniture,
paintings and tapestries, which provide the visitor with a fascinating
view of a noble family’s life through centuries. Today Rosenholm
Castle unites past and present culture as the organiser of exciting
tours, conferences, company parties, weddings, etc. The castle is
one of the biggest and most beautiful Danish manors from the
“With its heavy and serious-looking exterior behind the wide moats
and surrounded by tall lime trees, Clausholm seems to be brooding
on a well-preserved secret or hiding treasured memories from a
distant past”. This is how Clausholm Castle is described in the old
books, and it may be so. The history of the castle is long and
chequered, and comprises both royal grandeur, endless love and
tragic destinies. Clausholm makes its first appearance in the history
books at the beginning of the 14th century, but it was the Chancellor,
Count Conrad Reventlow who built the manor as we know it today.
While Count Reventlow made his distinctive mark on the exteriors
of Clausholm, the atmosphere and the many stories about life inside
its heavy walls must primarily be ascribed to his youngest daughter
Anna Sophie, whom King Frederik IV married morganatically.
The king bought Clausholm and introduced several changes, which
can still be seen. As something new, you can now be wed at the
castle chapel of Clausholm Castle and then have a wedding
reception in the beautiful garden room. And you can use the castle
and the large castle park with its impressive cascading water as a
photo location at weddings as well as in connection with fashion
and advertisement photography. www.clausholmslot.dk
det jydske haveselskab
– is housed in the historical main building from 1860 at the home
farm at Clausholm Castle. The building has now been turned into an
atmospheric café, a gallery, a green garden shop selling gardening
books, tools and exclusive English porcelain. The café serves a
wonderful buffet lunch - or simply a cup of coffee with the best pie
in the neighbourhood, which can be enjoyed on the atmospheric
patio with views of the themed gardens and parkland.
Enjoy a stroll through Clausholm Park and its famous Baroque gardens
as well as the Danish Garden Society’s five lush themed gardens:
The Sculpture garden’s wooden walkways meandering through
green foliage, fragrant honeysuckle and sculptures; The Flower garden’s
play with shapes and colours to reflect the changing seasons; The
Water garden’s evocative silence and exotic grasses as tall as a man,
water plants, frogs and insects; to the Shady garden with its peace
and quiet and trees shading the plants which thrive in just such
an environment; And the Inspiration garden’s beautiful range of
perennials and herbs, its orangery, greenhouse and experimental
kitchen as well as ornamental garden environments.
Det gamle Rådhus – the country’s smallest town hall Djurslands Museum’s characteristic half-timbered houses in the middle of Grenaa “Tørvegrisen” at Stenvad Mosebrugscenter
Djursland is one of Denmark’s most abundant areas for relics from
the past. Here, you will find the largest round barrow in Denmark,
one of the longest and best preserved passage graves and Kalø
castle ruins and many burial mounds with the most exquisite view
the museum of syddjurs
- ebeltoft museum
Amid the beautiful, quaint houses in Ebeltoft, you will find Ebeltoft
Museum with the old town hall – the well-known landmark
symbolising Ebeltoft. It is definitely the most prominent feature in
the old and unique market town environment. Denmark’s smallest
town hall offers exhibitions on Ebeltoft’s history and visits to the old
dungeon. The museum also houses a Siamese Exhibition, a curious
and unique ethnographic collection from ancient Thailand. On the
busy high street, there is also the charming dye-works Farvergård,
which was an active company around 1925 where the local peasants
had their wool and woven cloth dyed. The dye-works and its intact
workshops and interiors is the only provincial dye-works in Northern
Europe that has been preserved. During the high season, dyeing
activities are organised at the dye-works. The vicarage at Helgenæs is
a department of the museum with an exhibition about the history of
Helgenæs, an old classroom and a model of at pit house from the
Viking Age. www.ebeltoftmuseum.dk
In the heart of Grenaa is the old merchant house with timber
framing and crooked walls that provides the setting for the
interesting collections of the museum. Here, you can see the coin
finds from Kirial and Balle, ancient finds from Djursland’s rich past,
and interiors from the 19th and 20th centuries. On a trip through
time, you can see the history of clothing from the Middle Ages until
now, while the close past can be studied at the exhibitions about the
weaving mill Grenaa Dampvæveri and the history of radio and
television. The fishery museum Dansk Fiskerimuseum exhibits
parts of the varied history of fishing, and at Kattegatcentret with an
exhibition about the difficult conditions that the fishermen of the
past had to endure. ”Open boats at open sea” shows models of small
boats that braved the elements as well as common sense when it was
time to catch the fish. www.djurslandsmuseum.dk
The bog – its mysteries, people and machines.
At Stenvad bog cultivation centre (Stenvad Mosebrugscenter)
you sense the bog’s mystery, and the memories of working in the
summer securing warmth inside for the winter can be relived.
You will find models of various types of bog and both original
and reconstructed implements and machinery for peat-digging
next to ingenious tools like the million spade and the blacksmith’s
rail moped. Local weavers have portrayed the area’s and the
peat bog’s history on a tapestry that is 7 m 2 in total.
The exhibition also houses a model of the living-quarters that the
peat cutters had out in the bog. During the high season a kneading
facility is kneading peat soil in the „children’s bog“. The small train
„Tørvegrisen“ carrying tipping wagons takes its passengers on a
2.5 km trip along the old tipping wagon track to the bog. Half-way
there is a picnic area where you can enjoy your own picnic basket.
Shopping, nostalgia and
During the summer, you can meet the quirky inhabitants of
Mols depicted by a theatre group in the streets of Ebeltoft
The towns in Djursland have a special charm. They are towns with
history, nostalgia and a rich business life. The most important and
well-known towns are Ebeltoft, Grenaa and Rønde.
Ebeltoft’s old town centre oozes of nostalgia. The square and the
old town hall, Det gamle Rådhus, are at the very heart of Ebeltoft,
where bumpy cobbles, half-timbered buildings, watchmen and
market stalls form a uniquely picturesque scene. Here, many tourists
enjoy the weekly jazz concerts, which are held every Saturday at
midday from May to August – see the programme and much more
about Ebeltoft at www.ebeltoftby.dk.
Ebeltoft earned back its municipal charter in 1301, and today it is
both an old and new town with its modern luxury buildings at the
beach and a dynamic business life. In 2006, Ebeltoft was nominated
the fourth best shopping town out of 24 towns in Denmark.
Furthermore, Ebeltoft has achieved the title as the cleanest town
in Denmark. As a tourist town, Ebeltoft is no. 1 in Djursland.
Ebeltoft is home to the frigate Fregatten Jylland - the longest wooden
ship in the world and one of the top attractions of the town. A stone’s
throw from the frigate is the glass museum Glasmuseet Ebeltoft, which
is known throughout the world for its unique collection of international
glass art. The museum has also become known for its beautiful
architecture that unites new and old building traditions, which
includes a café with a magnificent view of the ocean. Ebeltoft also
has many specialty shops, fine restaurants, and a cosy marina.
sail there yourself
If you come to Ebeltoft by boat, you may dock in the new wooden
ships’ harbour or the marina. You can fish along the beach or from
one of the cutters sailing out from Ebeltoft.
Ahl Strand and Ebeltoft Vig strand are both child-friendly beaches.
On the east coast, you will also find the beaches Dråby Strand and
the old town hall in ebeltoft
The first town hall was originally built in 1576, but in the late 18th
Century, it was in such a bad state that it had to be demolished. The
old town hall as it looks today was completed in 1789. In earlier
times, the courtroom has been used to host public meetings and
trials and as a banqueting room. Today, citizens and visitors of the
town can use the old town hall for weddings. Couples from all over
Denmark and abroad come to Ebeltoft to get married in this old and
charming town hall.
watchmen patrolling the
streets of ebeltoft
Watchmen go back a long time in the history of Danish market
towns. This is also the case in Ebeltoft, where they were first
mentioned in the late 15th century. When an obligatory fire brigade
was introduced in 1761, it was decided that market towns should
have watchmen and that part of their duties would be to turn the
street lighting on and off as well as maintaining peace and quiet.
On the hour, every hour, they were to patrol the streets and sing out
what hour it was. Nowadays, the watchmen are merely a quaint and
colourful tourist attraction. In the summer season, the watchmen do
their rounds in Ebeltoft, starting out from the steps in front of Det
gamle Rådhus. In December, the watchmen can also be heard as
they patrol the old streets.
Gourmet market in the square in Rønde
Grenaa has been a market town since 1445 and is the biggest town
in Djursland. The town is a well-equipped shopping and business
town with more than 200 specialty shops. In the shops, you will
find a wide selection of brand-name clothes, shoes, arts and crafts,
flowers etc. Three pedestrian streets meet at the town square
around the tourist office and from here, the shops are located in a
closed environment of pedestrian streets. Furthermore, the town
includes a number of beautifully preserved half-timbered houses.
Nederstræde is one of these picturesque environments of
half-timbered houses. On a walk through town, you can see many
different sculptures, and you can regularly see art exhibitions
around town. Grenaa Kirke is also located in the town square.
The church underwent complete refurbishment in 2001, and today
it houses one of the finest organs in northern Europe and a famous
chime with 21 bronze bells.
harbour and town
The path Å-stien starts close to Grenaa Havn and connects the town to
the harbour. Grenaa Havn consists of 4 harbour environments, for
example a fishing harbour, a modern marina as well as ferry services
to Varberg in Sweden and the small island of Anholt. At the marina,
there are holiday homes, restaurant and shops. From the marina,
you can enjoy the view of Grenaa’s 7-kilometer beach. Grenaa
Strand is the best beach in Jutland, family-friendly, has good facilities
and the blue flag that guarantees clean bathing water. Close to
Grenaa town centre, nature starts with forest and heath and an
extensive network of paths for hikers, bike riders and horse riders.
Grenaa is also home to Kattegatcentret, Djurslands Museum and
Dansk Fiskerimuseum. The mill Baunhøj Mølle is a symbol of Greena
and hosts weddings as well as regular art exhibitions. The old mill
was destroyed by fire in May of 2002, so it is a newly established
mill that is now placed on top of Baunhøj.

Dronningens Ferieby is a specialist holiday centre for the
walking-impaired and wheelchair users. The centre has
44 houses designed in every detail to cater for disabled
visitors as well as a communal house with among other things
kitchen and conference rooms, an activity centre and a large
function room that seats 150. In addition, it has its very own
bathing jetty designed for wheelchairs. The ideal holiday centre
and meeting place for people with any kind of physical disability.
Rønde is a business town with specialty shops, good supermarkets
and restaurants. The new town square in the middle of the main street
of Rønde has a gourmet market with delicious organic specialties
during the summer months. The town is beautifully located as the
entrance to Mols Bjerge with a great view of Kalø Vig and Kalø
Slotsruin. Close to Rønde, you will also find an attractive golf course.
There are excellent bus connections to Aarhus and Randers and
other towns in Djursland.
Kalø Slotsruin was built by King Erik Menved following a peasants’
revolt in Jutland in 1313. In the following years, the castle went
through a turbulent time until in 1407 it became base and support
for the king and his royal vassals who governed Kalø fief, which is
to say the entire Djursland. Today only the castle ruins are left.

overnight stay on the island before returning home.
cross randers fjord
Over a stretch of a bit more than 20 km, Randers Fjord is crossed by
two small ferry services: At Mellerup-Voer, the fjord is crossed by
Ragna, Denmark’s smallest car ferry. The ferry service has the privilege
of being Denmark’s oldest royally privileged service. At the entrance
of the fjord, between Udbyhøj North and South, you can cross the
fjord on board Denmark’s only cable-drawn ferry, Udbyhøj Kabelfærge,

The Trehøje burial mounds in Mols Bjerge
Hiking in Mols Bjerge The cliffs in the north of Djursland
The landscape in Djursland is quite unique as you will be able to
experience nearly the entire natural diversity in Denmark within an
area of 50 km x 50 km, such as open heath, hills, dense forest, lakes
and approx. 150 km. of beach.
Djursland is an obvious choice for trips where you can experience
nature up close – by foot, on a bicycle, on a horse or in a canoe.
Go canoeing on Randers Fjord or on Alling Å stream. Walking route
maps describe routes in different types of nature and of varied
length. At the tourist offices, you can pick up guides and get help
renting a canoe, bicycle, horse etc. Or get help putting together
your own trip with detailed descriptions of nature and historical
background knowledge. Furthermore, we can help you put together
bicycle packages that fit your needs.
mols bjerge and helgenæs
Mols Bjerge is characterised by its remarkable landscape of hills,
forest and heath. The landscape was formed during the last ice age
approx. 12,000 years ago. The highest point is Agri Bavnehøj with
its 137 metres. There is a beautiful view of the landscape from the
area’s many burial mounds. These relics of the past are part of the
marked hiking routes. Through preservation, acquisitions and focused
care, Mols Bjerge has become such an attractive and scenic area
that it will probably have status as a national park in the future.
There are guided tours through the area with stories about the
history, myths, nature and plant life of Mols Bjerge. Mols Bjerge is
an obvious choice for hiking, bicycle rides and riding.

The northern coast of Djursland is home to the steep calcareous
cliffs near Karlby, Sangstrup and Gjerrild. The cliffs are popular
destinations when hunting for fossils. Here, you can find sea
urchins, belemnites and, if you are lucky, fossilised shark’s teeth.
The waters off the cliffs are an ideal spot for angling.
On Gjerrild railway’s old, closed section of railway you can follow
the landscape by foot or on bicycle into the countryside from
Stokkebro to Stenvad. A trip of 16 kilometres. If you want to go
along the coast, you can place the trip on the path Nordsøstien and
experience how the sea and the wind have shaped the landscape
and the village environments there through several generations.
Nordsøstien (North Sea Trail) is a path for walking, horse riding and
In the heart of Djursland, you will find Kolindsund, which was the
largest lake in Jutland until 1874. Today, the canals of Kolindsund
run from Kolind to Grenaa. The lake has become a scenic area with
a rich bird life and the water-filled canals offer plenty of opportunities
for catching a fish or two.
Grenaa Strand at Katholm Strandvej
Djursland is surrounded by the sea in three directions, making it
the perfect destination for a seaside holiday. The shores of
Djursland are renowned for their shallow water and endless,
white, sandy beaches – they are ideal for families with young
children. Moreover, the shallow water invites activities of all
sorts – playing ball or beach tennis, tossing Frisbees or simply
lazing in the water’s edge, enjoying the sensation of the water on
your body. Whether you go for a long walk along the beach with
the brisk wind in your face, or take your family to the beach on a
hot summer’s day, the seaside is a hit all year round, since every
season has a charm of its own.
Grenaa Strand, a 7-km-long white, sandy beach, was in 2006
elected Jutland’s best beach with, among other things, the best
facilities, the best sand, the best water and for being the most
child-friendly. Find your own private spot in the dunes, settle
down in the hot sand and enjoy the warmth of the sun
The coves of Ebeltoft and Kalø are surrounded by superb scenery.
The coves are obvious destinations for sailors, surfers and divers.
On the east coast, you also find the beaches, Dråby Strand,
Boeslum Strand, Ahl Strand and Ebeltoft Vig Strand - all child
Fjellerup, St. Sjørup, Lystrup and Rygård Strand are situated on the
north coast of Djursland. Those beaches are more diverse though
certainly suitable for having a good time and taking part in beach
activities. Further east is Bønnerup Strand, and at Gjerrild Strand,
there are long sandy beaches with pretty sand dunes and a large
unspoilt wasteland behind.
Those are but a few of the extremely fine, sandy beaches in
Djursland, but wherever you are, you could do worse than cycling
or walking to a small cove to go for a swim regardless of the time
Many of Djursland’s beaches have been awarded EU’s Blue Flag,
which is awarded to beaches with very clean waters and fine
amenities including good toilet and swimming facilities. Most
beaches also have good parking facilities, as well as kiosks and
restaurants nearby. Grenaa beach also has a lifeguard tower which
is manned throughout the summer.
Anholt – a paradise in
the middle of kattegat
– simple island life
Halfway between Sweden and Denmark lies the island of Anholt,
home to Denmark’s most isolated island community. As soon as
you board the ferry, you will feel yourself being drawn into the peace
and tranquillity that pervades the island. The countryside and the
people living on Anholt have adapted themselves to the fact that
water surrounds the island as far as the eye can see in every
direction. The island community lives in harmonious coexistence,
as it has done for generations. The population of the island numbers
about 150 residents, who are self-sufficient with their own school,
post office, doctor and vicar. Regardless of whether you are looking
for company or solitude, what characterises Anholt is absorption,
nature and simplicity.
stress is a foreign word
The island’s unique landscape is nurtured and cared for, and
something quite special and rare is the fact that the island is kept
free of organised tourist attractions. Nevertheless – or perhaps
herein lies the reason – a trip to Anholt will leave strong
impressions. There is plenty of space for undisturbed sunbathing or
taking a dip along the 25-kilometre-long coastline. There is lots to
explore on the more than 22-square-kilometre-large island, and it will
be on foot as most of the island is kept wonderfully free of cars.
Furthermore, the fishing village is often visited by yachts, fishing
boats and dinghies. During the summer, the restaurants are open,
and all year round, you can buy a large selection of fish and shellfish.
Most of Anholt is a designated conservation area, and the island is
also a designated IBA(Important Bird Area) and an area of special
geological interest. There are three types of landscape: glacial
landscape, coastal landscape with beach ridges and a dune landscape.
The unique countryside is extremely varied with large areas of flat
terrain and dramatic dunes, and with dense vegetation interspersed
by wild, open expanses.
The most distinctive natural feature on the island is the desert, which
consists of dunes, heathland areas and Northern Europe’s biggest
low heath. There are 3-400 different species of lichen on Anholt. The
desert was created after the population felled large numbers of trees
in the 17th century when large quantities of timber and firewood
were needed for heating, salt-making and fuelling the island’s
lighthouse. There is public access to the desert, which is today a
designated nature preservation area.

Wonderful, scenic campsite on Denmark’s most beautiful island. The campsite has direct access to the lovely
sandy beaches of the island, which have been chosen as some of the best bathing beaches in Denmark. The
campsite rents out caravans and camping cabins. We have open as well as more closed spots for tents as
well as caravans. In the area in front of the campsite, there is a small convenience store with a varied
selection of everything you need.
A feature of the island is its large population of common seals. In fact,
Anholt is one of the biggest and most important habitats for the common
seal in Europe, as well as having a small population of grey
seals. A seal reserve has been established at Totten, the only place in
Denmark where seals can be seen at close quarters from land. In the
past, the seals helped to ensure survival for the population of the
island. Today, however, they are the focus of extensive research, with
many, for example, being fitted with chips so that researchers can
track their behaviour by satellite.

The inn is traditionally run and opens every day at 8.00 am when we serve a breakfast buffet. Everything revolves around
the bar, café and patio at the inn, where guests can check their emails in the Internet café or play a round of billiards in the
public bar. The kitchen serves traditional Danish cuisine based on fresh raw ingredients and shellfish from the sea around
the island and which, despite its simplicity, is lauded by both summer visitors and Anholters. The hotel’s rooms always
include a full breakfast with the option of preparing a picnic if you are setting out on a walk through the desert or along the
beach. We also offer accommodation with all meals, outside the season at discounted prices.
