There are around 40,000 holiday summerhouses for rent in Denmark. They tend to be located in picturesque areas, often near inland water or the coast and are decorated with individual, Danish style. They are an extremely popular holiday form amongst Danes.
To underline the popularity of this type of holiday home offering time for relaxation Danmark Post has introduced five bright stamps that are highly recommended to our readers by StampNews.com.
Around a quarter of a million Danes own summerhouses, and many more dream of buying one for themselves someday.
The opportunity to enjoy delightful family get-togethers and relaxing days in harmony with nature has made the summerhouse a popular type of holiday home, because what could be better than lazing on the terrace and soaking up the sun?
Even though the design, furnishing and size of the summerhouse has changed almost beyond recognition over the years, the purpose has remained the same: spending time close to nature, enjoying the fresh air and – above all – taking time to relax. The five stamps present examples of new and old summerhouses from Danish summerhouse areas.
