EbeltoftDenmark

Go hiking in the Mols Bjerge National Park, soak up the history of cobbled streets bordered by hollyhocks, visit the longest wooden ship in the world or enjoy the thrills and spills of Djurs Sommerland.

Enjoy a fascinating family holiday or a romantic weekend break in Ebeltoft. This old market town oozes atmosphere with its narrow cobbled streets and idyllic timber-framed houses, flanked by red and yellow hollyhocks. A trip to Ebeltoft not only offers the romantic charm of the town, but also lots of action and unique scenery. Come and see the cannon show on one of the world’s biggest wooden ships and the town’s very own landmark, Fregatten Jylland, or visit Glasmuseet Ebeltoft, to watch the fascinating art of glass-blowing. Check out Denmark’s first rock museum, Memory Lane Rockmuseum in the Fuglsøcentret.

Ebeltoft is on the tip of Djursland and is the oldest market town in the region. That makes it a living page out of the history books, and the passing of time can clearly be seen in this idyllic little town. Ebeltoft can also boast of being in one of the country’s most beautiful national parks, Mols Bjerge. This is where you can hike, bike, fish and swim, or just enjoy the view from the top of the highest hill in the park, Agri Bavnehøj.

If you’re looking to take a beach or family holiday in Ebeltoft, you won't be disappointed. Enjoy the safe, sandy beaches bordering the sheltered Kattegat, or spoil the kids with a trip to Djurs Sommerland. If you love animals, there’s also plenty to choose from here. Visit Ree Park Safari, Skandinavisk Dyrepark, Munkeholm Zoo, Randers Regnskov and Kattegatcentret.

If you need the rush of the big city during your stay in Ebeltoft, no worries, it’s only an hour by road to the nearby city of Aarhus. You can also enjoy a bit of shopping in Grenaa. A ferry sails from here to the island of Anholt, an unspoilt gem complete with its own desert and seal reserve.

During the Danish school holidays, you can take the National Park bus for a stimulating three-hour guided sightseeing tour. If heading for Anholt, remember to plan accommodation on the island for the night, as the ferry only sails once a day. Look forward to a unique night in the middle of the Kattegat!

Take the ferry to Ebeltoft for magnificent scenery, lots of activities for the whole family, child-friendly beaches and of course, the charming and romantic little market town itself. In other words, Ebeltoft can fulfil just about any holiday need.

"We had a great experience at Molskroen Strandhotel. The staff was nice and service minded, the bed was very comfortable, and the food in the Brassiere was amazing. The only thing I can comment on, was the breakfast. The breakfast staff was very disorganised, they didn’t fill up the buffet without ..."…"
