Brønderslev

Brønderslev houses one of Northern Europe’s largest rhododendron parks – Hedelund. Surrounded by century-old trees, the park boasts more than 10,000 rhododendrons, primarily blooming in the months of May and June – a most spectacular sight!

The vicinity of the town of Brønderslev is packed with nature experiences in places such as the forest, Dronninglund Storskov; the raised bog, Vildmosen; and the ridge of Jyske Ås. Next to Brønderslev, you will find a small pearl, Asaa Strand, which is one of Denmark's most child-friendly sandy beaches. Take a trip to the idyllic harbour of Asaa with the red-painted fishermen's houses and visit the cosy Asaa Harbor Museum.

Culture

A visit to the manor houses and castles, Dronninglund Castle and Voergård Castle will provide historical experience aplenty. You may even participate in an evening banquet at Voergaard Castle – or you can pay our museums a visit and learn about former times’ fishing; about the milling of grain at the mill, Dorf Mølle; look at vintage cars/tractors, or take a tour through the history of the Vildmose moorlands.

Where to sleep

Visit Hotel Phønix, a charming hotel in central Brønderslev steeped in atmosphere and with shopping opportunities right outside its doors. If you prefer staying in one of the villages around Brønderslev, we recommend Dronninglund Hotel, Hotel Hjallerup Kro and Jerslev Inn. If you have an inclination towards romance, Dronninglund Castle provides romantic rooms with a view of the park.
On the east coast, in the charming fishing village of Asaa, Asaa Camping provides every kind of camping facility, inclusive of luxury cabins. If you prefer more primitive holidaying, there are many nature campsites around the municipality.
