Wow! Thank you for all this information Larry, this will give me plenty to look at.

I visited Denamark as a child and still remember having the most delicious hot dog! So that will me a must! Sondervig also sounds wonderful. Thank you.
You're welcome, the roads are empty as well, not like the UK :thumb

We were planning a four week trip to France & Spain in the summer but, having read these posts, are now seriously thinking about Denmark instead.
Thanks Clare - think you've started something here!!

Hello Clare,

We too intend to hit Denmark this year (2 adults and 3 kids) but I plan to drive to Billund over two days on my own, with the family flying out from Heathrow and me collecting at the airport.

Flights look very reasonable with the cheapest being Ryanair (Stanstead) at £53 or BA £61 from Heathrow if you pick the right date

We will then trundle around Denmark for a week or so and then slowly wind our way back to the Eurotunnel

I will follow this thread and welcome anything you find and will replicate....good idea this forum hey!

Found out you can take a ferry from Arhus/Ebeltoft to Zeeland - helps makes a nice round trip if you want to take in a lot. I can't decide whether to do this or just Jutland...

You might find the attached helpful. I've recently discovered pebblar, its great! :)

Ah Fantastic! This is just the sort of thing I was looking for :thumb

Thanks again, I think I may be pinching some of your ideas. Our two boys look a similar age to yours so the places you visited would definitely appeal to them. Little lego boxes are also a great idea! and my 8 year old was impressed with the lego build!

We were up there two years ago, loved every minute of it. Family highlights were Lalandia in Rodby, Tivoli in Copenhagen and camping in Chartlottenlund.

Spent a lovely day wandering around Copenhagen, wish we had at least two more to take it all in. Will definitely be going back!

p.s. Can I ask what awning sides you have? We went to look at dive away awnings today but think they might be a bit of a faff! And the comfort sides look pricey, although probably worth it.

Thanks in advance

I would just add one area to all the other very good suggestions: Visit the top of Jutland and not least the large dune Raabjerg mile. It is one of the biggest dunes in Europe and one of the very few that is allowed to move. And it is also a fun trip to go to the absolute top of Jutland at Grenen and see Skagerak and the North Sea meet. Remember we are a small country, so a few hours will take you anywhere.
Enjoy your trip.

What's the average Danish weather like in September?

Since we are surrounded by the sea, we will always have very varied weather. That said, I find September to be a nice month. You don’t go swimming but with a bit of luck it is not to wet and temperatures at 12-20 Celsius. It’s the last of the tourist season so attractions are still open and not crowded.

So we have booked flights to Billund and I'll be picking the family up from the airport.....£194 with BA and no 12 hour slog for the little ones. Legoland has a cracking deal on for Sunday and Monday nights with 2 day passes heavily discounted if you stay at the hotel.

Hopefully theme hotels are not as bad as I fear....I'm sure the kids will love it......

The more however I research Denmark, the more I feel I may need a second mortgage to survive......

Just delay the post Christmas diet by a few months.

Has anyone yet mentioned the Danish pastry? And their bread? Danish bakers are the best! We look for a ”bageri” every single day when we visit Denmark. And we’ve visited Denmark quite a lot.
We found the campingsites quite expensive but always very good and clean.
We found the famous west coast beaches nice but windy, and the sea not deep enough for a swim. So we prefer for swimming one of the many blue-flag beaches on the eastern coast or islands.
Many towns have special activities for children during school holidays like”crab-fishing-courses” or finding edible plants along the seafront. Visit a local tourist office for this kind of information, I don’t think you’ll find it on www.visitDenmark.dk

Old thread but just for info we’ve been to Denmark a couple of times during Covid in 2020 and on each occasion used the Eurotunnel - not being coughed on by other passengers could be an advantage. Stopped once in Germany at Camping-Paradies & Restaurant Grüner Jäger in North Germany. Dog friendly. Clean outdoor pool, cheap, great simple, hearty food and very close to the main motorway. Ideal one stop strategy and manageable in one hit from Surrey as I am the only driver. Will stop there again hopefully this year. You have to pay in advance in Euros. Got there on one tank (just) so no stopping in FR, BE or NL

Denmark fabulous as is my Danish wife. Gratuitous photo on the North Zealand coast attached.
