What must you simply see or do before you die (or go home)? Below, we set out suggestions for the funniest activities and best taste experiences for a family holiday at the Odder Coast.

Inspiration for your very own bucket list

The Odder Museum Water and Steam Mill

Step into a beautiful and enchanting bubble in time full of fantastic machinery and mechanics. And you might even learn something! Take a walk in the park surrounding the old buildings and take in the cosy atmosphere. It’s just so full of “hygge”.

The owner of Café Alrø holding a giant filled patty shell

Eat your way through one of the renowned giant filled patty shells served at Café Alrø

We throw down the gauntlet! It’s huge and – boy – it’s good! You may have seen it on TV or in the magazines but never tried it? Hurry up and book a table in advance because these ginormous island patty shells are sought after. Who gets there first?

Hike at the foot of a slope on Tunø

Put on your hiking boots and walk around the car-free island of Tunø

Tunø calls to all children and childish souls – come thee here! Take the beautiful walk around along the coastline of this child-friendly island. Once you have completed the 8-kilometer-long walk and completed your treasure map, you will receive a medal as proof of your achievement. 

The bear grotto in Rathlousdal Forest

Find the old bear grotto in Rathlousdal Forest

There is something magical about the forests around Odder. In Rathlousdal Forest, just south of Odde, you may be lucky enough to come across a real bear grotto originating from an old zoo. Find the grotto if you dare and take photos of the children while they growl behind the bars. 

Two boys greeting a goat in the Ecology Garden in Odder

Say hello to a donkey and pat a goat

The animals in the Ecology Garden are looking forward to seeing you! So set aside a whole day when the entire family visits this haven. The children can play at the large playground and roam the 14 topical gardens. We’ll see you at the largest ecological open garden in Scandinavia!

Goods on the shelves of the farm shop Fru Møllers Mølleri

Father and daughter playing in the water at Saksild

Challenge yourself and jump into the clear waters at Saksild – regardless of the season

On a warm summer’s day, we are all tempted to jump into the sea. And why not do it at one of the best beaches in Denmark? Are you visiting during the winter? Winter swimming has never been more popular. Do you dare take the freezing cold jump?

Children playing on Denmark’s oldest crazy golf course in Saksild

Swing the club at Denmark’s oldest crazy golf course

After a trip to the beach, you can take on your family in a game of crazy gold on the old course in Saksild which is always buzzing. The course may hark back to the days of yonder, but it is still as much fun as when it was constructed maaaaaaaany years ago. 

The owners of Vejlskovgaard Mælkeri with a glass of milk

Thirsty? Tap your own milk

If you need to take home milk for your strawberries, then try tapping it yourself at the dairy, Vejlskovgaard Mælkeri. At the Mælkeriet, you can pour fresh milk on cans. And the children are welcome to visit the cows in the stable, so that they can see where the milk comes from. It is somewhat more interesting than reading about it on your iPad.
