Many families are renting out one or more rooms in their private home, for tourists to stay in. The rooms are a nice alternative to conventional accommodations, as it is often cheaper. The rooms are all furnished to show off individual charm, and it gives the homey feel you won’t find anywhere else.

Some of the private accommodations in North Jutland offers breakfast if ordered in advance.

I love to experience the culture up close and personal, that is why we always stay with locals when we travel around the world and North Jutland

Along the roads of North Jutland, you will find the typical signs advertising "Værelser - Zimmer - Room", which means a local family offers their private homes for you to stay in.
