Denmark’s Wild West

One day it shows teeth and thunders over everything. The next day it gently sings a lullaby to the pebbles at water’s edge. The North Sea is the wildest aspect of Denmark, in terms of both its temperament and the experiences it offers. From south to north, for young and old, enjoy surfing over the waves, immersing yourself in art and history, or simply sailing among the clouds while lying in a sandy hollow between the “æ havbjerge” - the straw-coloured dunes - which rise in soft curves along the entire coast. 

From districts and corners, from Skallingen in the south to Vedersø Klit in the north, the scene is set for enjoying late summer and celebrating autumn. It is a special season when it comes to the local natural bounty and events under the open sky – such as the roaring concert of rutting red deer.

The art of discovery

At our many museums, you will be invited on a journey of discovery, where past and present are bound together and prepare us for greater understanding of the future. Harsh realities with infinite beauty are expressed in ceramics, on canvas, or given form in world-class contemporary architecture. Visit FLUGT, the international museum designed by the Bjarke Ingels Group, which conveys the universal feelings associated with being a refugee. Travel back 1000 years and meet the Vikings

Go to a flea market and see if Jutlanders really are hawkers par excellence. Late summer is also the peak season for music in streets, alleys and churches – for example, when the volume is turned up at the Late Summer Festival in Hvide Sande.

Wild North Sea cuisine

North Sea cuisine is vitality and essence. Everywhere, wild nature has created ingredients for unique taste experiences: in the salted air, the fish in the sea and grazing cattle in the meadows, in red deer that tower over the open heath and the fragrant whispers of herbs and small gastronomic wonders. Enjoy this wonderland, which offers everything from bouquets and bonfires to the taste of wild food with ground elder – or you can go to the kitchen yourself and sleep well afterwards in a shelter. You can find inspiration everywhere in the well-stocked farm shops with crispy vegetables, cheese, eggs and freshly-extracted honey.

Acclaimed restaurants and small beach cafes

You can enjoy a high level of pampering or just enjoy a single meal in good company. Gourmet restaurants, beach cafes and road inns are scattered along the entire coast. Just as in the shopping opportunities in vibrant city life, there is no lack of variety of sun, water and beaches.

The West Coast culture

What is West Coast culture? It's localised, local experiences that are worth driving for. A uniqueness and drive that is rooted in the given conditions and the ambition to create something "out here in the west".  In the series below, locals put into words what west coast culture means to them. You'll get closer to them and everything that makes the North Sea and our area so special.
