  1. Enjoy the special setting of the cottage, which is built of 90% glass and has been awarded for its architectural innovation
  2. Feel nature up close with open views from glass windows to the changing landscape
  3. Stay 250 metres from one of East Jutland's best beaches and within walking distance of the beautiful Marselisborg Forest

Pack the family in the car and head for the 'Glass House' just half an hour's drive from Aarhus. Here you can get close to nature and the open and changing landscape in a unique cottage built from 90% glass. Perfect for the family, solitude or a few days of workation surrounded by beautiful nature and peculiar architecture. In 2010, the summer house was awarded the prize "Prize-winning Architecture" for its special construction made almost entirely of glass. On the first floor, all the walls are made of glass, which creates a fantastic light and gives an incomparable view of fields and trees. Enjoy frosty winter mornings, bright summer evenings or crisp autumn colours with a good book in front of the wood-burning stove or a glass of wine on the terrace. From the cottage you can in just five minutes trot down to Ajstrup Strand, known as one of East Jutland's most beautiful beaches. Nor do you have to walk more than two kilometres before you reach the Marselisborg forests or cosy Norsminde harbour, where you can stroll along the pleasure boats and buy fresh fish for lunch from the fisherman. And the cottage is the perfect starting point for a short trip to Aarhus, the 'City of Smiles'.

My summer house is called 'The Glass House' and is built almost entirely of glass. I love the wonderful light it provides and the changing views of the open countryside. When I'm at the cottage, the days are spent winter swimming, playing golf and taking long walks by the forest and beach. The cottage is just 250 metres from one of East Jutland's best beaches, 2 km from Marselisborg forest and Norsminde harbour, where you will find a small fish house and a lovely restaurant. Aarhus Golf Club and Moesgaard Museum are also just 7 km away.
