Originally I come from Jutland, where I started my career in the industry in Arrild “Ferieby”. Later I became manager at Fredericia Tourist Office and after that I became manager at Hillerød Tourist Office, and when the lease of Hillerød Camping became vacant in 2005, I had no second doubts that I wanted to be the new commander here.
Much has happened since my girls, Elizabeth and Helena, and I moved to Hillerød Camping in 2005- at that time they were only 4 and 6 years old. It was a big change for us to move from a detached family house to live at camping site, but we have had great pleasure in meeting a lot of nice people from all over the world, and experiencing that they feel as much at home on the camping site, as we do. Including my Dutch boyfriend, Taco, who in the late summer of 2010, came by the campgrounds, and since 2012 he has been an integrated and valued part of our host family.
Over the years, we, along with our dedicated staff, have put a lot of effort and love into creating this oasis in the city, as it is today, and we find it hard to believe, that the camping site was once a cattle show area - it is only our lovely prairie, which leaves our thoughts back to the cattle show, where our guests now enjoy having lots of space for games and sports.
We have continuously upgraded the camping site
We are very proud of our new toilet and shower building, which was opened in 2010 and Hillerød camping was upgraded from 2 to 3 stars. At the same time we also made a lovely terrace facing south, with olive trees and various citrus trees. Our plants come from winter storage at the beginning of May. You will also find an herb bed, which you can use free of charge. 2010 was also the year when Hillerød Camping, as the only Nordic camping site, achieved to join the Top 20 at Camping Life Campsite of the Year. Many thanks to our guests for your positive feedback – it warms our hearts that you feel at home with us.
In 2011 we made new terraces at the cottages, and in 2012 a service area for camper vans incl. a chemical toilet facility was made, so we can welcome the many tourists, who visit us to enjoy a quiet and cozy place in the middle of the city.
In 2013 we bought new comfort cabins and an additional part of the 'Prairie' was expanded by approx. 30 new sites, all with access to electricity (13 amps). We also made new water posts. At the main house we build a new outdoor kitchen/dishwashing area.
In the winter of 2013/2014 we have made an expansion of our private accommodation in the main house; an improvement which we have been waiting for, for many years. Now we can better see ourselves "getting old" at Hillerød Camping. 2014 will be the year, when we launch yet another expansion in the number of sites, so we get up to approx. 145 sites in total. As in the summer of 2013, there will again this year be masseurs at the camping site during the summer, and this year we have arranged a cottage for Wellness/Massage.
My family and I are looking forward to welcoming you and your family at our oasis.
