Tourists within Europe typically head to the classic cities of Paris or Munich, but many visitors are now starting to travel to Danish islands such as Als instead, to experience a different kind of getaway. The island of Als, Denmark, is situated on the lower eastern side of the Danish peninsula, parallel to the country’s border with Germany.
Lying in the Baltic sea, Als represents a typical fisherman harbour island community of Denmark with plenty of Danish sites to see. Being a larger island, Als can boast a larger population than some of its smaller island neighbours, and the island frequently swells with tourists from Germany and Poland during the summer months. The island economy is best known for its fruit production as well as the local pork industry. Pig farms enjoy solid success in pig breeding as well as food production, supplying the greater local region with fresh product regularly. If you like the idea of spending your holidays on an island but aren't convinced by the Danish weather, guarantee yourself a sizzlingly hot summer getaway in Menorca Villas.
Favourite Destinations (Als)
Als Cottage Rentals - the perfect place for architecture enthusiasts to admire beautiful buildings
Tourists For boaters, the Als island is the perfect location. Around the land area, there are numerous coves making for a boating weekend of fun and adventure. On the island itself, architecture and history buffs will enjoy a visit to the Sonderborg Castle, which provides a curator function for the island’s history. The Augustenborg Palace is a spectacular example of Danish architecture, however the location operates as a working hospital rather than a typical tourist site. Many of the Als Island beaches are rocky, but they make for great walking trips from Als holiday rentals as visitors can follow the waterline on hiking excursions. Given the normal temperatures of the Baltic sea, the coast is probably best enjoyed in the warm summer months for swimming. Biking is also a common activity to enjoy on the island, allowing visitors to get some distance away from the town centre whilst exercising, stretching their legs, and touring the landscape. Another naturally beautiful holiday location you may enjoy is Fichtelgebirge Holiday Cottages.
Als Holiday Lettings - book yourself a cosy and romantic break with that special someone

Property rentals come in a variety of structures, some as a complete flat or a home being available for rent for a few weeks. Another place of outstanding natural beauty which nature lovers and outdoor enthuasiasts may enjoy is Central Bohemia Apartments.
