It is possible stay at a hotel in the middle of the town. Hotel Nørrevang new owners welcome you and on select days there is dancing and live music in the restaurant. Marielyst Feriecenter is located just back from the beach and the water, between the aspen and beech trees, nestled in the middle of beautiful natural area called ”Den Duftende Plantage” (The scented plantation). Take a good sniff and see if you can detect the fragrant nuances of the different woods and, of course, the salty sea. There is plenty of wildlife to see in the mornings. Remember to take a little bread with you so the kids can feed the curious pheasants that trundle about in all their magnificent feathery splendour, year round. Or during a long Spring weekend with the family experience the many "Easter” hares that run about in the plantation. There are around 150 wooden houses situated in the middle of the plantation, designed with respect for surrounding nature. The houses, which were designed by Stephan Kappel, are just 500 metres from the beach. See more about hotels and holiday centres here
