Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in North Zealand, Denmark your home away from home

North Zealand is a beautiful place to enjoy a holiday in Denmark, with its scenic landscapes, beautiful golden sand coastline, lakes and magnificent castles. Just across the Sound is the coastline of Sweden and Helsingborg is just a short ferry ride away. This slow paced, less populated area north of Copenhagen is where the Queen of Denmark chooses to spend her vacation. For historians there are a wealth of Viking remains and for modern day explorers a visit to the home of Knud Rasmussen is a must.

Things to Do in North Zealand, Denmark

A visit to the beach is a pleasurably treat from your North Zealand holiday home rental. If the sun is shining, the locals may well be getting an all-over tan. The blue flag waters are pretty cold for swimming but on cooler days a walk along the seashore can be exhilarating. Take a boat trip to one of the nearby harbour towns or take the ferry to Helsingborg for a day in Sweden. The scenic countryside and the pleasant temperatures are usually ideal for hiking and cycling around the small waterfront villages, drinking in the pretty sights and stopping for refreshments wherever the fancy takes you.

Places to Visit in North Zealand, Denmark

Helsingor is a lively town in North Zealand where Kronborg Castle, the famous setting for Shakespeare’s Hamlet, can be visited. Rungsted is a charming small town, best known as the setting for Karen Blixen’s short stories with a museum to her memory. On a different plane completely is the outstanding Modern Art Gallery of Louisiana which can be found along the coast at Humlebaek. Roskilde is the old capital city of Denmark and consequently has some interesting architecture and places to visit. The Cathedral at Roskilde is the resting place of Danish royalty and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The wonderful Viking Ship Museum is another real treat for visitors to linger over. Roskilde and neighbouring Isefjord are in fjord country where busy local harbours abound. Just west of Humlebaek is Fredensborg where in July visitors can tour the newly opened royal summer palace.

The house is clean, well maintained, including the guesthouse. Plenty of fun things to do in the house and on-property to keep small children busy. Just a few steps from the beach. It was perfect for our family reunion. What an incredible place!! I hope we come back someday.

The perfect beach, the beautiful lakes and the lovely old fishing village that also holds some excellent little restaurants, makes the area fantastic for recreational activities. This house has a perfect location, it is calm and quiet, with both shopping and the beach within a short walking distance. It is very well equipped and there are many rooms, so it is very convinient for two or even three families to stay there together. Especially the gathering of the big family around the barbecue in the garden during the late summer evenings have been wounderful for us. And the morning coffee does never ever taste any better than it does together with fresh bread from the splendid bakery on the main street, taken on the sunny back-side of the house after a quick morning swim ! / Fredrik and family
