North Jutland

Viking Experience

Go back in time and visit our Viking forebears at Fyrkat Ring Fortress, a Viking farmstead based on an original and the largest, so far discovered, Viking burial ground at Lingholm Høje.

Børglum Monastery

Formerly, a Viking and royal residence, which, from the mid 1100s, became the Bishop’s Palace and centre of the Roman Catholic Church in Northern Jutland.

Voergaard Slot

Dating back to 1481, it is one of the best-preserved Renaissance manor houses in Denmark. A manor guide will tell you about some of the colourful characters who owned and lived here.

The land of shifting sands and disappearing buildings

The wild and rugged nature of the disappearing north west coast of enormous sand dunes and buildings on the edge of the cliffs.

Sæby

Enjoy a scenic drive up the east coast to this picturesque, quaint fishing village, dating back to Viking times. It is one of the oldest towns in Northern Denmark.

Hanstholm

One of the largest Atlantic Wall defence installations from WW2. With its sister at Kristiansand, Norway, they defended the entrance to the Baltic with their 38 cm (15") guns.

Bangsbo

Bangsbo Museum is a surprising place, not what one would normally imagine as a museum. It has 5 attractions: a manor house, a museum, botanical gardens, a fort museum and a wild life park.

North Sea Oceanarium

Home to the largest fish tank in Northern Europe containing 4.5 million litres (990,000 Imp gal - 1,200,00 US gal) of water.

Top of Denmark

Grenen, where you can watch two seas crashing into each other, visit the Skagen Artist Colony, Art Gallery, see the Sand Covered Church and Raabjerg Mile, Denmark's Sahara Desert.

Mariager Fjord

Idyllic, picturesque Mariager is surrounded by natural beauty and home to the ‘Salt Centre’ Museum. Take the Svanen paddleboat and cruise Denmark’s most scenic, genuine fjord.

WW2 Bunker Museum

Hirtshals is home to the only excavated, complete, German, WW2 defence-installation in Denmark, open to the public. 54 excavated bunkers connected by 3,5 km of trenches.
