New Area in Bondesgårdsland
Djurs Sommerland - Bondegårdsland 2014
Djurs Sommerland is a Danish amusement park located in Nimtofte, Jutland. The amusement park is only open during the summer months and is one of the most popular amusement parks in Denmark. Leisure Expert Group developed a complete master plan for Djurs Sommerland for the expansion of the park. One of the key points of this masterplan was the development of an entirely new area: Bondegårdsland (farmland).

“It was a true pleasure to work on this project together with Djurs Sommerland’s owners, Henrik and Michael Nielsen. After our initial project at Djurs Sommerland, the haunted house Hekseskolen, we started to discuss the many possibilities available to this gorgeous park. We set up a 15 year master plan for phased implementation of the many options for renovation of the existing areas, as well as expansions. The children’s area close to the main entrance was very outdated and quite an eyesore, so this was tackled in the first phase of the masterplan. A completely new area was designed where the whole family feels at home. We are very proud that we were able to implement this project all the way from sketch to reality. We are regular visitors at Djurs and see how guests enjoy the cosy atmosphere in this area – we are proud to be part of the process.”
The Leisure Expert Group designed all the attractions, F&B and shops in the area down to the smallest detail, following the master plan phase. After months of close collaboration with Djurs Sommerland, the construction of Bondegårdsland was a fact. The Leisure Expert Group also took charge of art direction for the entire production process, in order to guarantee the best quality and make sure the results correspond with the master plan sketches.
THE FINAL RESULT
“We want to offer even more attractions for families with both younger and older children which the children and adults can enjoy together with the new Bondegardsland. At the same time, we expanded our capacity with a new theme area, because the number of visitors has increased dramatically in the past few years. We selected the very best family attractions for Bondegardsland and, in order to improve the experience, the entire area will be transformed into a farm world, especially designed for us by the Dutch experts from the Leisure Expert Group.”
