Danhostel has two accommodations in Sønderborg - one in the town centre and the other in the rural area called Vollerup. There is also a large Danhostel in Rinkenæs. All 3 locations are close to the border with Germany and are good starting points for a holiday in South Jutland.

Dybbøl Banke History Centre 
The whole family becomes a part of the story when you visit Dybbøl Banke History Centre.  Cover your ears and blow the smoke from your nostrils after the cannon is fired. You and your family can experience the war in 1864 over pancakes. See live exhibitions and experience the story in a new and exciting way. Visit the historic Dybbøl Mill across the street.

Enjoy Nature on Horseback at Sydals and Gråsten
There are great experiences in Southern Jutland for experienced riders and beginners. Two locations offer rental of horses and tours through the forest. At Equifree Horse Rental, go on carriage rides in the forests in Gråsten and practice your bow and arrow skills while riding. Experienced riders can walk on the beach and ride in the water. Thormod Horse Rental offers horse rentals and nature tours. Also, the young can ride on a pony.

Universe Science Park
Enjoy technical and exciting experiences for the whole family. Design your own VR roller-coaster ride, direct your own stunt movie, try out the 11-m-high Sky Trail, and become part of the virtual world. Try a Segway and watch the science show. Go crazy in soap bubbles and play with laser lights. Spend many hours entertaining the whole family. Universe Science Park is South Jutland's largest adventure park where science is fun.

The Museum at Sønderborg Castle
At the southern entrance to Als Sund, you will discover a historic castle that sits majestically by the water. The castle is beautiful inside and out. View the palace's beautiful interior and visit the museum, where you can explore the building and learn its history. King Christian the III and his son Frederik the II introduced tilting-at-the-ring to Denmark in the 1500s, so the palace also forms the setting for the famous ring rides which take place every Tuesday throughout the summer.

Stay in South Jutland at Danhostel Sønderborg City or at child-friendly Danhostel Sønderborg-Vollerup, Both are in Sønderborg. A bit further south, closer to the German border, is Danhostel Flensborg Fjord, a newly renovated Danhostel with lots to offer.
