Culinary specialties in West Jutland

It's all about the seafood in Denmark's most dramatic coastal region!

Fresh fish at the source

With the North Sea dominating West Jutland landscape and lifestyle, it’s hardly surprising that it’s one the best places in the country to gorge on fresh fish. Tonnes of fish are caught daily along the coast and are available to buy at outlets just a few short hours later.

Other yummy stuff

If you’re into mussels and oysters, then head to Limfjord for a delicious, fresh selection. A small brown shrimp, indigenous to the Wadden Sea national park, is also a regional delicacy. Aside of the fruits of the North Sea, West Jutland’s lamb and beef are much-coveted, so whatever your taste, you’ll find it satisfied here.
