Rømø Island, Denmark
I meant to post this after we got back from our wonderful OSD trip in Denmark. I had the text written up…just needed to upload the photos… and somehow it got forgotten. We’re dreaming of another OSD trip at some point in the future, so I wanted to finally report back to you all.

Antonius, our 9 year old son, and I had a fantastic time on our OSD trip in September. We drove our C30 for a week in Jutland, Denmark, then spent two nights in Copenhagen after dropping the car off in Göteborg.
Before getting to the report and multiple photos, let me give a couple tips for future OSD-ers. First, everyone here recommends not taking delivery on the day of your arrival. We ignored that advice but we shouldn’t have. We got almost no sleep on the plane and were pretty much zombies for the delivery and factory tour. In fact, we didn’t even take any pictures of the delivery! Next time we will get a night’s sleep beforehand.
Second, we had chosen to fly from Chicago via Stockholm because we were nervous about the very tight connection time at Copenhagen. But the Chicago-Stockholm flight left so early (5 pm) that we really weren’t ready to sleep on the plane. Taking the 10 pm flight to Copenhagen might have been more conducive to getting a bit of sleep beforehand.
This google map shows the places we stayed overnight (but not the detours and side trips we drove) – the trip around Jutland was in a counterclockwise direction:
We really took advantage of having a car by concentrating on small towns and rural spots, as you’ll see. Antonius speaks Danish (one motivation for our itinerary) but nearly everyone we encountered spoke excellent English. By the way, the Danish tourism board has very helpful listings of b&b’s and vacation rentals. I’ll add a link below for each place we stayed in Jutland.
Okay, on to the report. All photos are by Antonius except the Legoland one.
