Leisure activities nearby:
Louisiana Museum: We recommend to visit the Louisiana Museum for Modern Art located in Humlebaek which is 13 km from our villa. Louisiana Museum is one of the biggest tourist attractions in Denmark and a great place to spend the day inside or outside or both.
The scenery and surroundings of the museum is incredible and very child friendly located next to the ocean where you can stroll around in the park and enjoy the art. There is a special kids section where the kids can play outside or be doing art themselves under supervision while the parents can concentrate on the great art work and events inside and outside.
Kronborg Castle - Hamlet's castle: William Shakespeare wrote the famous play Hamlet which takes place at Elsinore castle. The castle is 12 km away from our villa and it can easily be reached by car or by train or bus which are running every 1/2 hour.
Fredensborg Castle is another smaller castle only 12 km away set in beautiful surroundings next to a large lake.
Frederiksborg Castle, probably the most beautiful Renaissance castle in Northern Europe is only 18 km from our villa. The castle is surrounded by water and is stunning looking with it majestic towers.
The city of Hilleroed surrounding the castle is also a beautiful merchants town with plenty shopping facilities.
We are a Danish/US couple with 3 children/young people that live, study and work internationally. We are surprised and humbled that so many different nationalities from all over the world appreciate and take such great care of our villa during their stay.

We are in outskirts of a small preserved forest only 3-4 minutes from a wonderful white sandy beach with big dunes and clean ocean water.
On a sunny summer day you will be surprised to see hundreds of people on the beach which is big enough to accommodate everybody and still offer privacy in the dunes.
Hornbaek village is adorable and we have 4 supermarkets, 10 restaurants, 3 sushi/pizza/burger shops, fantastic french/danish bakery, great local shopping with a mix of new and old, gallery, local market on weekends - all within 5 minutes of walking from our summer villa.
Apart from the beach, museums, castles, amusement parks, 7 golf courses, the forest with its wonderful walking/bike trails there are lots of other things to do.
Our villa is situated north of Copenhagen and it offers easy access by car and public transportation to and from Copenhagen in 45-60 minutes.
Sweden is across the ocean and when you are on the beach you can look across the water at Sweden 4-5 km or less than 4 miles. Take the train/car to Helsingor/Elsinore and the ferry across and you are in Sweden less than an hour after you left our villa. Though the Scandinavia countries share thousands of years of history and there are many resemblances they still differ not only in language but also in landscape. You don't have to drive far and suddenly you have mountains and deep forests and houses that look very different from what you will see in Denmark. If you have the time and the energy it is definitely worth your while
We're deeply in love with this lovely villa in Hornbaek and keep on returning year after year during our summer vacation. The perfect beach, the beautiful lakes and the lovely old fishing village that also holds some excellent little restaurants, makes the area fantastic for recreational activities. This house has a perfect location, it is calm and quiet, with both shopping and the beach within a short walking distance. It is very well equipped and there are many rooms, so it is very convinient for two or even three families to stay there together. Especially the gathering of the big family around the barbecue in the garden during the late summer evenings have been wounderful for us. And the morning coffee does never ever taste any better than it does together with fresh bread from the splendid bakery on the main street, taken on the sunny back-side of the house after a quick morning swim ! / Fredrik and family
This spacious house lies at the end of a cul de sac guaranteeing complete privacy,, important for a large group such as ours. The beautiful beaches of Hornbaek are a 5 minute walk over sand dunes and shops are also within easy walking/biking distance. The area has bike trails and the house provides a ping pong table and croquet set . The owners were very helpful , All in all this was one of the best vacations that we have experienced.
A few years ago our family decided to gather our family for a reunion in Denmark. With our standards and expectations always high, we happened upon this wonderful large home in Hornbaek. Wow, what a slice of heaven! There were 11 of us in our group, ranging from 3-86 years old. Simply said, this large home had all the subtle elegance and "creature comforts" of our home, but with the Danish flair for design that we knew about only from magazines that we get in America. It's location -- close to a sweet beach with soft sand which met up with tiny beach restaurants you could walk/bike to, speciality shops in the Town, and also close to the train to get us into Copenhegan, it was the best of the country-beach community with Copenhagen at our finger tips. We'll be back, I just hope they are still renting it!
