Experience the Black Sun as flocks of thousands of starlings find shelter for the night just before sunset at the Wadden Sea or go for a brisk walk along the North Sea. The autumn sun will warm and add colour to your cheeks and along the beach you may even find rare amber or other beautiful stones while the family dog will love all the long walks.
The forest is colourful in its autumn attire
Go for a long walk in and enjoy the trees in the forest as they take on the most amazing warm colours of gold, red and orange, while the children gather as many chestnuts as possible to roast in the fireplace in the evening.
It is also the season in which you can pick mushrooms that you easily can turn into the most delicious mushroom dish, that everyone will enjoy. Make sure to see the recipe at the bottom of the page.
If you are quite enough you might be able to sneak up and watch the forest animals as they gather food for the winter.
Relax by the fireplace
Autumn evenings in a holiday home are perfect for family fun, undisturbed peacefulness, and total relaxation. As temperatures fall and the whistling, autumn wind blows outside, it is finally the season for setting the perfect indoor atmosphere with plenty of comfy cosiness. Fetch your woollen sock and curl up under a blanket to soothing candlelight with friends and family for a round of cards or a boardgame. Don’t forget to bring along a good book and treat yourself to a cup of hot cocoa or hot toddy while the fire crackles cosily in the fireplace.
Go swimming on your holiday all year round
Why not treat yourself to a holiday home with a pool during an autumn vacation? In a holiday home with a pool, the kids – and yourself - are guaranteed hours of fun.
Oh, and don’t forget, when you rent a holiday home off-season, you get a lot more holiday home for your money! And there are plenty of fun activities to look forward to as nature's colours are change from green to red.
Things to do in a holiday home in autumn
Go scavenger hunting in the wilderness
The colours of the countryside changes with the season and is notably spectacular in autumn with its multitude of colours which change almost daily. As you walk along the seashore or through the forest, you'll undoubtedly stumble upon plenty of natural items and objects to use for indoor activity and craft ideas.
Turn beautiful stones and clam shells into jewellery or create beautiful collages with autumn leaves and/or preserve them by pressing them. Moss, heather, and pinecones are ideal for drying and making into decorations and don’t forget to collect plenty of chestnuts and acorns, in which you eat the fruit after roasting them in the oven.
Get a taste of nature in the autumn
There are plenty of delicious (and nutritious) foods to be found in the autumn wilderness. Why not go for a stroll and pick up the ingredients you need for your evening meal?
You'll find berries, nuts and fruit depending on where you go and make sure to go mushroom hunting, wither in the forest or by visiting a mushroom farm, where you can get plenty of delicious mushrooms to bring home with you.
