Leisure activities nearby:
Louisiana Museum: We recommend to visit the Louisiana Museum for Modern Art located in Humlebaek which is 13 km from our villa. Louisiana Museum is one of the biggest tourist attractions in Denmark and a great place to spend the day inside or outside or both.
The scenery and surroundings next to the ocean is magnificent and you can stroll around in the park and enjoy the art. There is a special kids section where the kids can play outside or be doing art themselves under supervision while the parents can concentrate on the great art work and events inside and outside.

About Therese & Poul Christoffersen, Owners
We are a Danish/US couple with 3 children/young people that live, study and work internationally. During our absence in Denmark we rent out our summer villa. We are surprised and humble that so many different nationalities from all over the world appreciate and take such good care of our villa during their stay with us.

Why Therese & Poul Christoffersen, Owners chose Hornbaek
We are in outskirts of a small preserved forest only 3-4 minutes from a wonderful white sandy beach with big dunes and clean ocean water.
On a sunny summer day you will be surprised to see thousands of people on the beach which is big enough to accommodate everybody and still offer privacy in the dunes.
Hornbaek village is adorable and we have 3 supermarkets, 5 restaurants, 3 sushi/pizza/burger shops, great local shopping with a mix of new and old, gallery, local market on weekends - all within 4-5 minutes of walking from our summer villa.
What makes this villa unique
Apart from the beach, museums, castles, amusement parks, 7 golf courses, the forest with its wonderful walking/bike trails there are lots of other things to do.
Our villa is situated north of Copenhagen and it offers easy access by car and public transportation to and from Copenhagen in 45-60 minutes.
Sweden is across the ocean and when you are on the beach you can look across the water at Sweden 4-5 km or less than 4 miles. Take the train/car to Helsingor/Elsinore and the ferry across and you are in Sweden less than an hour after you left our villa. Though the Scandinavia countries share thousands of years of history and there are many resemblances they still differ not only in language but also in landscape. You don't have to drive far and suddenly you have mountains and deep forests and houses that look very different from what you will see in Denmark. If you have the time and the energy it is worthwhile.
