Musholm is one of the most accessible holiday, sports and conference centres – both to get to and stay at. It is a so-called social enterprise, which is primarily run with the purpose of supporting a social purpose of offering holiday and leisure activities to a particular user group. Any profits must thus be used to support and develop activities according to the purpose.
We are located by the beautiful white beach in the middle of Denmark. 90 minute drive by train or car from Copenhagen, two hours from Aarhus and 45 minutes from Odense. At Musholm, everyone can have a great experience. In the fantastic setting, there are high ceilings in every sense of the word. Everyone is met with opportunities rather than limitations.
We have made a virtue out of everyone, regardless of body and age, being able to find an activity to participate in. But those who can and who want a little more can also have a chance to test their boundaries. In brief: At Musholm, there are challenges and experiences for everyone. We spell diversity with a capital D and you can go from tranquillity to racing in an instant. On the coastal paths, idyllic country roads, along the beach and in our multi-purpose sports room, you can enjoy life and feel the adrenaline pumping, whether you’re into elite sport or sports for the first time. The multi-purpose hall is a paradise for those who are tired of activities for people with disabilities often ending up with packing the participants in too much wool. You can take part in all conceivable wheelchair sports and movement activities. You can climb or be hoisted up the climbing wall. Zip across the room in a cable car or lose yourself in the romp room. Around the hall, there is a covered ramp which ends in a fantastic skylounge with a view of the sea and roof. Immediately adjacent to this, we have an exercise room with equipment adapted to wheelchair users, people with walking disabilities and the visually impaired. Outdoors and indoors, the settings are so comfortable that there’s also space for reflection and being yourself.
Finally, you’ll always find someone amongst our skilled staff and network that can help you get going.
In addition to the hall, we’ve also built a dining room with sea view.
Musholm holiday-sports-conference was established in 1998 on the initiative of the Muscular Dystrophy Fund, with support from, amongst others, the Labour Market Holiday Fund in order to create good, attractive holiday experiences for people with disabilities. The current area is approximately 4,000 square metres and consists of 30 holiday homes, as well as a limited number of shared facilities. In addition, the centre has available fantastic outdoor areas with direct access to accessible paths, piers and bathhouses on the beach with all necessary aids for people with disabilities.
We came here for a summer kid camp for disabled children. The location is fantastic with beautiful and fully-furnished and equipped apartments just above the beach. The fully accessible grounds connected by covered corridors have lots of activities for children and make for great place for games if the weather does not pan out. The beach is white sand, and the bay blocks much of the wind, so is mostly calm for bathing as well as longer swims. Short walk (10mins) to train and longer (20min) walk to town and nearest shopping. Buffet food was excellent, set menus could have more fresh vegetables, and alcohol was pricey (bring your own;).
A family trip to Musholm. One of us in a wheelchair. Location is lovely, everything accessible and rooms big. The staff were friendly, but didn’t know what to do. One asks us to take drinks ourselves and other one says that’s forbidden. Staff doesn’t know what we will get as a dinner and says that dessert is vanilla ice cream. The dessert was coconut mousse with a LOT salt. In general the food was a disappointment breakfasts, lunch and dinners. If we come again, we will bring our own food.
I booked this apartment for one night on my i-phone in a rush when our plans abruptly changed. I did not realize we needed to rent linen and towels ($20 each pp.) until the confirmation showed on my iphone. Since the booking was nonrefundable, we rented their towels and linen. This is not a good choice if you do not have linen and towels with you. Once we arrived, we realized we were able to make use of our own supplies and avoided renting bedding and towels. However the bedding and towels were already on the bed. My towels were separate from my linen and not in the plastic open ended bag. My friend's towels were inside of the bag and she used one of her towels before realizing she didn't need to. The agent still charged full price ($20) for the use of the one towel claiming the seal was broken. Wow! I think this was unfair, but there was nothing we could do, I also think if I had told him my towels were not in my bag from the start, he might have charged us for both. Other than this minor annoyance, the unit was wonderful. The place was easy to find off the highway and very clean with all the necessary basics for a longer stay. If arriving after 4:30pm you must let them know. Room keys were placed in an envelope and inserted in a box with the code given to us by phone to open the locked box. I believe the facility to be a wonderful place as our room was spacious, clean, and the view of the sea outstanding. Our unit held 4 twin beds in two separate rooms, a nice size living room and kitchen combo and large bathroom sans tub. It is a handicapped facility so all accommodations are specially suited. Lights came on where ever you walked in the building! We arrived late in the evening so could not take advantage of our close proximity to the water, plus it was raining nonstop. Check out is 10 am. I could not tell if there was a beach as we could not explore much in the rainy weather. I did notice an outdoor play area and a large plastic chess set outdoors. There is construction in progress on site, but it did not hamper us. It's a perfect place begging for a longer stay. I highly recommend Musholm Holiday Apartments even though it has a distinct medical facility atmosphere about it. Waking up to that incredible sea view is worth it for the very reasonable price we paid. When we tried booking the room a second night, the price was substantially more than we wanted to pay, and we opted to move on. It would make a great family vacation spot!…
