Scandinavia's largest summerland
Djurs Sommerland is Scandinavia's largest summerland and Denmark's second largest tourist attraction outside Copenhagen. The amusement park has Denmark's largest roller coaster, a huge Aqua Park and over 60 rides for all the family.

Major investments
More than EUR 55 million  has been invested in new, large, themed rides since 2008. As a result, Djurs Sommerland has presented Danish and foreign families with 29 new rides over the last 8 years. This strategy has resulted in a record growth in visitor numbers. In the same period the visitor numbers have increased more than 50% fra 525.000 guests in 2008 to a record of 808.000 guests in 2017.

National and international recognition

Djurs Sommerland reaps major recognition at an international level.

Djurs Sommerland has been awarded the title Scandinavia's best summerland in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 by the big Swedish travel site Barnsemester.se.

In 2015 Djurs Sommerland was awarded the title Denmark's Best Amusement Park by CoasterClub Denmark and in 2014 awarded the title Denmark's Best Amusement Park by Berlingske Rejseliv.

Also, Denmark's longest roller coaster, Juvelen, was voted one of Europe's three best rides in 2013 by Germany's biggest club for roller coaster enthusiasts - Freundeskreis Kirmes und Freizeitparks (FKF).

Furthermore the roller coaster Piraten has been voted as the world's fifth or sixth best roller coaster on several occasions.

Established in 1981
