An excellent choice for a Danish sea side vacation is the old fishing village, Hornbaek – in North Sealand.
The Harbor has a very active, modern yachting harbor with all the necessary facilities. For many years both the harbor and the beach have been awarded the “Blue Flag” and as one of the only towns in Denmark, Hornbaek beach provides access to the beach for wheelchair users.
The beach activities are endless! You can rent water cycles, play beach volley or go windsurfing.
If you love the peace by the seaside but still desire the possibility of sightseeing and city-life the Danish capital, Copenhagen, with all its attractions, is only a 45 minutes drive away. The liveliness of Copenhagen is famous amongst travellers. The enthralling atmosphere and active nightlife in the capital entice everyone who visit.
You can catch a glimpse of Sweden on the other side of the water and the Swedish coast can be reached in 20 minutes by boat.
Kronborg Castle, known from Shakespeare’s “Hamlet”, is 12 km away from Hornbaek and is well worth a visit. “Kronborg Slot” is one of the most significant Renaissance castles in Northern Europe.
Hornbaek has a reputation of being one of Denmark’s most popular holiday spots and when you stroll the marina with all its attractive cafes and restaurants after a an eventful day – or a long day in the sun you will understand why.
It is a real treat for everyone who enjoys life at the seaside: the beach, the light, the fresh air, the scenery, the quiet of the countryside and peace of mind combined with a wide range of restaurants, a variety of shops and an inspiring cultural life.
All this attracts visitors from a large area – so please: remember well in advance to book accommodation whether you want to stay in holiday houses, annex, hotel, guesthouse, campsite or Bed & Breakfast.
