Denmark holiday homes are found in a country with one of the happiest populations and best qualities of life on the planet. Made up of Jutland, the mainland, and 72 inhabited islands, it blends spectacular coastal scenery with sites of enormous historic importance, as well as a smattering of thoroughly modern cities. Copenhagen, the capital, is as full of life as they come, with first-class sights, nightlife and attractions. It’s a must-see destination if you’re visiting a holiday home in Denmark. If you find yourself in town on a Wednesday then be sure to head for the city’s numerous fantastic museums, which tend to offer free admission on this day. Retail therapy for your stay at accommodation in Denmark is afforded by Copehangen’s famous Strogetpedestrianized zone.
Denmark boasts 7400 kilometres of coastline - which is more than India - much of which is immaculate sandy beach. Of course, you might not have a beach holiday in mind when you head for your Denmark self-catering cottage, but summer can bring pleasant weather, and the coastal landscape is impressive nonetheless. Well worth visiting during a stay at Denmark holiday rentals, the island of Bornholm is a highly popular holiday destination amongst people in the region, with numerous sites of historical interest and beautiful sandy beaches on its south coast. The island’s distinctive medieval round churches have become a local symbol. Another area of considerable natural beauty is the biodiverseSydfynskeOhav “Island Sea” archipelago south of the island of Funen, and should figure in your holiday plans during a stay at apartment holiday homes in Denmark.
Weather in Denmark
The difference between winter and summer at holiday homes in Denmark is dramatic – in summer the surrounding streets will be alive and bustling, while in winter an emphasis is placed on “hygge”, which is basically the Danish love for hunkering down and staying cosy at home.
Best Time to Visit
The summer months is definitely the best time to visit a Denmark cottage, both in terms of weather and events. For younger visitors the Roskilde rock festival is one of Europe’s biggest, and takes place in late June/early July.
Denmark’s self-catering cottages and holiday home apartments can be reached by air via the country’s four major airports – Aarhus (AAH), Aalborg (AAL), Billund (BLL) and, of course Copenhagen (CPH).
