Cities & places

There are plenty of wonderful places in North Jutland to have the perfect vacation. The area is known for its fantastic nature and has more hours of sun than the rest of the country, so it is no surprise that thousands of Danes, Norwegians, Swedes and Germans choose to vacate in North Jutland each year. They all know that here you will find time to explore the open spaces, get sand between your toes, to be together and simply enjoy life.

Here you will also find tons of experiences - from Skagen in the North to Mariagerfjord in the South, from Hirtshals in the West to Sæby in the East. And of course time to enjoy the nature and to immerse into the culture and history - and then there are lots of events taking place in North Jutland.
