Welcome to Djursland

Countless great experiences await you!

The peninsula of Djursland is a veritable eldorado of fantastic experiences. Here, you can hop on board Denmark’s fastest roller coaster in Djurs Sommerland – Scandinavia’s biggest summer amusement park, get close to wildlife from around the world in Kattegatcentret aquarium, Ree Park Safari, Skandinavisk Dyrepark wildlife park, and Munkholm Zoo. You can experience nature at its wildest in National Park Mols Bjerge, look forward to the best beach holiday of the season near some of Denmark’s best beaches – and the list simply goes on and on.

And Djursland has even more to offer – find out more about the more than 200 attractions that are just waiting to be explored.

Take in the Biggest Nature Areas

The unique Ice Age landscape in Djursland is a big part of the reason for the creation of one of Denmark’s five national parks, Mols Bjerge National Park. Here, you can take in stunning panoramic views, deep kettle holes, and a fascinating landscape and wildlife. You can even go back in time when you visit the ruins of Kalø Slot castle, and near Tustrup, you can see reconstructed dolmens, a passage grave, and a cult house dating back to the Stone Age.

Having the best beach holiday ever entails listening to the waves rolling in, feeling the warmth of the sun, and not least enjoying being together with your family and friends – and Djursland is your perfect destination for doing just this.

Here, you will find beaches with gentle waves and white sand, where the children can play safely building sand castles or paddling in the child-friendly, shallow bays. And at the same time, you are in an area with the country’s highest concentration of exciting attractions that is an immensely popular holiday region in Denmark, and great experiences are ‘right around the corner’.

Furthermore, these coasts are simply calling you for lovely angling and gleaning trips or to go gathering incredible fossils. For instance, in the guide "Four Beaches That Will Bring you More Than ‘Just Another Day at the Beach’", you can learn wonderful things from the local guide, Kim Rath Kofoed, about what you can do and find at the beach – all year round.

Go on an Island Get-Away to Anholt

Anholt is a natural gem out in the middle of the Kattegat sea. Here, you can experience Ørkenen, the desert, which is Northern Europe’s largest lowland heath along with an absolutely exceptional starry sky far from the many lights of the city. And of course: the island’s white, sandy beaches.
