Ready, willing, and Ebeltoft—Denmark's hidden gem

Less than an hour's drive from the hustle and bustle of Aarhus, Denmark's second-largest city, Ebeltoft is a relaxed, historic port beside the Kattegat strait on the Djursland peninsula. Visitors are drawn to the cobbled streets and distinctive architecture of Ebeltoft's charming, medieval town center, and the surrounding area is a popular destination for warm-weather recreation during the summer months. With an Ebeltoft vacation rental, you'll be close to local landmarks like Mols Bjerge National Park, the Ebeltoft Museum, and the Glasmuseet Ebeltoft, one of the first museums dedicated specifically to glasswork.

An outside chance—Ebeltoft's open-air recreation

A popular summer destination for visitors from throughout Scandinavia, Ebeltoft's got more than enough outdoor activities to go around. All along the peninsula's ample shoreline, you'll find broad, sandy beaches with plenty of space for swimming and sunbathing. At the town's marina, you can find a number of outfitters offering everything you'll need for a grand day out on the water, from sailing excursions to kayaks, fishing gear, and more. Golf lovers can get their fix, too, and you'll also find a number of walking trails and campsites in the surrounding countryside.

Get yourself a touch of glass in artsy Ebeltoft

Even after you've had your fill of outdoor recreation, you'll find plenty in Ebeltoft to keep you busy. At the Glasmuseet Ebeltoft, you can check out a massive collection of glass-based artwork by makers from around the world, with more than 1,500 objects housed in the former customs building. Once you're through there, you can head over to the Jylland, a 19th-century frigate. One of the largest wooden warships in the world, the vessel, now in dry dock, is home to a museum of seafaring history, with Danish artifacts from its maritime past.

Soak up some sunshine in seasonal Ebeltoft

Like most of Denmark, Ebeltoft has a humid continental climate that's strongly influenced by the weather patterns of the Atlantic Ocean. Summers are warm, with average highs around 70 degrees in July and August. Spring and fall are mild and wetter, though rainfall is plentiful throughout the year. Average winter temperatures can dip as low as 27 degrees in January and February, and average highs generally peak around 37 degrees. A popular summer destination, the warmer months are usually the busiest here, so you'll have the best chance of finding wallet-friendly Ebeltoft vacation rentals during the colder winter months.

Pristine, peninsular paradise in Ebeltoft

On the Djursland peninsula in northern Denmark, Ebeltoft is just a short drive from the urban center of Aarhus. The town itself is fairly laid-back, with residential areas and cobbled streets wending out from a loose, historic town center. The coastline that rings the peninsula offers plenty of wide, sandy beaches along the shore of the Kattegat strait, with rolling countryside as you move further inland. Your Ebeltoft vacation rental actually lies within Mols Bjerge National Park, a 44,000-acre area with walking and biking trails that includes the nearby Mols hills, deciduous forest, and countless native plant and animal species.
