Sailing in Denmark – Things To Do in Thyborøn

Thyboron may not be as popular as other cities in Denmark, but don’t let that stop you from visiting this idyllic fishing village located in the North West Jutland. Thyboron is a smaller, but beautiful upcoming tourist destination that is definitely worth a visit. You will be surprised by some of the unique things to do and explore at this hidden sailing destination. Especially, if you are looking for a calm, relaxing and at the same time educating experience.

Agger Beach

Agger beach is a nice wide sandy beach with a clear water and few stones. To the southwest the beach continues directly into a beautiful bird sanctuary, and to the north lies Thy National Park, with it’s beautiful heath, lakes and dune plantations. Perfect place for strolling and watching a sunset.

Sea War Museum of Jutland

If you are interested in European history and WWI, you should definitely take some time to visit the Sea War Museum of Jutland. There you will find a unique collection of artifacts and memorials of the Battle of Jutland, which took place during World War I, on 31 May 1916. The museum does also include the Jutland Memorial Park. The park commemorates more than eight thousand sailors from both the United Kingdom and Germany who died in the battle. The museum is one of a kind. It is founded by a private collector and it doesn’t take any sides of the war. Instead, it explains the story and human losses on both sides in a neutral way.

Kystcentret Thybøron

For a relaxing day with your family, you can go to Kystcentret Thybøron. The exploratorium offers many indoor activities for children, adults and seniors alike. The center is in the theme of “Sand, Water and Knowledge”. Here you can activiely learn about the nature that surrounds us with a lot of interactive and entertaining activities. You will get to know what is shaping the west coast of Jutland, or how to protect the coast from various destructive forces. It’s a 5000m² area, so we are pretty positive that you will find something that  particularly interests you!

Jutlands Aquarium

Another great activity for the entire family is Jyllandsakvariet, the Aqua world in Thybøron. Here you can get an up-close encounter with the many different and colourful fish species that live in the North Sea and the Limfjord. In the aquarium you can see, touch, follow and help feed the fish (even sharks, rays, and flatfish) that swim around and live well in the aquariums in Thyborøn. You can also go treasure hunting for amber on their indoor beach.

Sneglehuset

Decorated using over a million sea and snail shells, the Snail House is one of the most visited attractions in Denmark. Here, the masonry as well as the furniture is covered with thousands of shells, clams and conch. It is a peace or art of a single person who has worked relentlessly over the years to make this happen. Apart from the house itself, you can also visit the “ships in bottles” exhibition located there.
