The Baltic Sea regions

In Denmark, the Baltic Sea reaches from the eastern parts of Southern Jutland, Funen and South Funen Archipelago to Southern Zealand, the Lolland-Falster islands, the Bay of Køge, the island of Møn and finally Bornholm far in the east. Along this stretch, you will find some Denmark's most popular holiday areas.

Along its western parts, i.e. the eastern coast of Southern Jutland, you will find holiday homes close to towns like, Haderslev, Aabenraa, Sønderborg, Broager and Gråsten along with the well-known holiday home areas of Mommark and Nordborg on the island of Als. The coasts along the Lillebælt strait boast several child-friendly beaches perfect for a fun day at the beach for the entire family. Or how about visiting the attractions of the area, like the Danfoss Universe, the Mill of Dybbøl or the famous ring jousting festival at Sønderborg?

If you go east, the beautiful South Funen Archipelago awaits you, its islands popularly known as the Danish equivalent to The Caribbean. Many tourists like to go island hopping among the many smaller islands. The Egeskov Castle, the Odense Zoo and H.C. Andersen's native city of Odense are also popular tourist destinations. In Odense, you get the chance to follow in the footsteps of H.C. Andersen. The archipelago and the South Funen coasts are generally characterised by their uniquely beautiful countryside and attractive holiday areas and holiday homes. For instance, the selection is wide around the Helnæs Bugt bay, the Faaborg Fjord, the Svendborg Sound and on the islands of Ærø and Langeland.

Further east, the Baltic skirts the southern part of Zealand, the Køge Bugt bay and the islands of Lolland and Falster. Here, you will find the popular and picturesque holiday areas of Karrebæksminde, Marielyst and Møn. In this part of Denmark, the landscape is quite varied from the tall cliffs at Møn and Stevns to the flat expanses of Lolland and Falster where you will also find some of the most child-friendly beaches in Denmark. Besides the beautiful scenery, we also recommend a visit to the amusement parks of BonBon-Land and the Knuthenborg Safari Park.

The island of Bornholm, situated in the Baltic Sea furthest to the east is a much-loved holiday destination and offers a whole range of attractions and activities for the entire family. Bornholm boasts rocky shores and steep hills for those who are fond of walking as well as excellent beaches for those who prefer a relaxing time. You can also visit the ruins of the Hammershus Castle and the Joboland amusement park. In the summer months, the island has its own unique feel and atmosphere. During this time, the island is host to a lot of activities and events, and in all its different venues tourists and locals gather to have a good time and enjoy local cuisine like the famous dish Sol over Gudhjem (smoked herring on dark rye served with a raw egg yolk and a sprinkle of chives) and beers from the local brewery.
