Rent holiday cottages in SE Jutland

SE Jutland

The south-eastern stretch of coast is a true Eldorado for both children and adults. All kinds of beach and water-sport activities are practised here. The many sandy beaches are very child-friendly because of the shallow and calm water.

Behind the coast the landscape is characterized by woods, preserved plantation landscapes, lakes and streams. The 'mountain' Himmelbjerget by the lakes of Silkeborg provides you with Denmark's highest view. Here you can enjoy the beautiful nature from a canoe or from one of the many boats that sail in the area. Skamlingsbanken by Binderup is a scenic nature area, and with its 113 metres above sea level also the highest point in south eastern Jutland.

Als is absolutely worth visiting too. Als is regarded as one of Denmark's most beautiful and green islands.

Culture

A great part of the Danish history took place in south-eastern Jutland. The area shows many traces of relics, i.a. from the old wars, which were fought for the mother country Denmark. The mill Dybbøl Mølle (originating from 1744) was previously located in the middle of a military area and today, it is converted into a museum with pictures and memories from the battlefield. The stones Jellingestenene with their runic inscriptions originate from the viking age and are called 'Denmark's birth certificate'. The girl Egtvedpigen was discovered in 1921 and is the best preserved find from the bronze age in Denmark. A museum in sit informs about the rare find. The castle Sønderborg Slot was restored in the baroque stile and contains i.a. a museum that pictures the history of southern Jutland. South east Jutland is, however, much more than relics from the past. You will also be met with modern architecture, Danish design as well as lively and cultural commercial towns her.
