Mange Hilsner from Denmark

By
Real Estate Agent with Thompson Company, REALTORS® MD594797

Last month my family and I spent one incredible week in the Ringkøbing area of Denmark, just steps from the North Sea and I thought, I'd share a few pictures and impressions with you all. 

My first thoughts while driving through Denmark en route to our vacation rental was how calm (despite the wind), peaceful and slower paced it seemed. Roads were just 2 lanes most of the way and traffic circles are very popular. The landscape is spectacular and all - nature and the people - have adjusted to the rough winds coming from the North Sea. 

Houses (naturally, the REALTOR® in me paid close attention to houses & subdivisions & construction) are set in between the dunes - as if they are hugging them. You'll only be able to make out the roof of many of the homes from the street. Speaking of which, green and thatched roofs are quite popular and are characteristic for the area by the North and Baltic Sea. I don't know if our vacation rental was "the norm" but assuming though, it's all very much quality, eco-friendly and as storm proof as possible. As always I wondered how much better houses on the East Coast would fare during Hurricane season if those were constructed a similar way and/or with the same materials.  

What can you do in one week in Ringkøbing, Denmark? Go for long walks [or runs] on the beach, brave the waves and cold water of the North Sea, collect rocks and sea shells, climb up the steps in a lighthouse and take in the view, go antique shopping, visit the aquarium, pet fish and sift sand to find Amber, learn about local history and WWII [there are still bunkers on the beach], ride a bike [it's extremely bike friendly], have fun at Legoland, eat lots of fish, find your way out of a maze, play soccer golf ... relax, recharge your batteries and make memories. 

We did all of the above and then some and loved the area.. so much so that I wouldn't mind a return trip in the future.

Life just seems like it would be so much more simpler in places like Denmark or Norway.  I love the house with the grass roof.

I always learn something new from you, Andrea. Like today, I learned how to type a Nordic word like Ringkøbing with a slash through the o. Sounds like a wonderfully exciting place to visit. But why is there a lawn growing on that roof?

I spent some time in Denmark in the 1980s and what a wonderful place with hospitable people.
