Djursland is something else. There are many who say that. And we do not disagree. On the nose of Jutland – on the first row to the Kattegat Ocean – you will find some of the wildest scenery, Denmark has to offer.
Djursland is located only 25 min. from Aarhus. On Djursland, everything is within a short distance. It does not take long to get from the largest slides in Djurs Summerland to one of the many lovely beaches in Jutland on the 250 km long coastline. There is also not far from passionate glass art at the Glass Museum in Ebeltoft to explosive cannons on the Frigate Jylland, the world’s longest wooden ship.
Many great stories lie hidden in the museums of Gammel Estrup Manor, where you get an insight into how Upstairs and Downstairs lived through centuries as well as an insight into the history of agriculture from the Neolithic Period to the present.
You can also shop in wildly charming Ebeltoft and experience the magnificent scenery of the National Park Mols Mountains with stops at Kaloe Castle Ruins. Or visit Randers Rainforest, Scandinavian Wildlife Park, Ree Park Safari or the Kattegat Centre in Grenaa. They are almost like pearls on a string.
Syddjurs and Norddjurs Municipality are part of European Capital of Culture Aarhus 2017.
