     Go on vacation to the southern of Jutland and experience a unique atmosphere, there and here.

    Here you can experience many things just nearby and close to our holiday home, which is located in a quiet and beautiful area with small hills and a view over Flensborg inlet. 

    In the area you can experience Broager church with the two towers, Dybbøl mill and the history museum ‘Dybbøl Banke’, where the battle in 1864 at Dybbøl can be experienced. Take a walk in the palace garden of Gråsten, which is beautiful the entire year. See the old brickyard Cathrinesminde. Take a walk or a biking trip on the Gendarm path and enjoy the view over Flensborg inlet. Visit Sønderborg castle and take a walk in the cosy café environment by the boardwalk or a trip along the shopping street. Other sightseeing places on Als is Augustenborg castle, Danfoss Univers and Nørreskoven

    Do not miss out on the opportunity of driving further west. Visit Tønder and the beautiful Møgeltønder, with Schackenborg castle. Drive further to the city Højer and Højer sluice, which is located in the very flat countryside. Now that you are in the southwest corner of Denmark you need to see the border area in Rudbøl, where you can stand on the old border stone in the middle of the road, with one food in Denmark and the other food in Germany.    

    When you have seen most of our area (Jutland), then Germany is right by with the beautiful city Flensborg only 25 km away from the holiday home. Here you find interesting museums and a lovely harbour environment, and here it as well, is possibly to enjoy a walk in the shopping street, with plenty of stores and eating-places. Grocery shopping (mainly soft drinks, alcohol and candy) at good prices in the many border shops is also a must.  

    It is not for nothing, that the song from South Jutland “South Jutland is the best place on earth, a beautiful nature with fields and forest” was written, because we have it all.
