Sonderjylland Vacation Packages
Castles, cathedrals, ancient towns and theme parks await in Sønderjylland. The area is known as Southern Jutland in English and encompasses a beautiful natural environment of sub-glacial valleys, fjords, wetlands and the Wadden Sea.
A good base for your stay is the picturesque town of Sonderborg, situated on Als, a small island. It is connected to the mainland by bridges, and is filled with cultural attractions. Explore the chambers, hall and chapel of the spectacular Sonderborg Castle. Browse its museum, which covers the history of Southern Jutland from medieval times to the present day. Learn more about the area's history at the Museum of Southern Jutland. The institution has numerous buildings across the region covering natural history, cultural history and art.
Sonderjylland’s past can be explored in many other locations. Tour Nordborg to see a number of medieval relics. Visit Nordborg Castle and Nordborg Church, two well-preserved buildings that date back to the 13th century. Wander through the rooms and grounds of Glucksburg Castle, Germany’s largest moated castle. Visit the Viking Museum at Ribe, Denmark's oldest town.
Journey to the town of Grasten for Grasten Palace, the summer home of the Danish Royal Family. For three weeks during the summer you can watch the ceremonial changing of the guards here.
With wide open spaces, lakes, rivers, forests and an extensive coastline, there is a lot of nature to investigate. Trek through forests and hike along the Gendarm Path, a 46-mile (74-kilometer) coastal route. Go on fishing expeditions and witness the Black Sun phenomenon at Wadden Sea National Park. This is when thousands of starlings form patterns in the sky before landing at night.
For children, there are at least two big reasons for visiting Sonderjylland. The region is home to Europe’s largest LEGOLAND theme park and then there is Universe, a family adventure park on Als.
