West Jutland has some of the most beautiful nature in Denmark. Dunes, heathlands, windswept beaches, inlets, straits, bays and plantations, - West Jutland has it all! The dramatic coastline is shaped by the uncompromising North Sea , and to the north the landscape is characterised by countless bays, straits and inlets by the beautiful Limfjorden.
West Jutland is also home to the UNESCO World Heritage site the Wadden Sea National Park. This intertidal marshland stretches from Holland through Germany and up the west coast of Jutland. It is known for its great birdlife and beautiful scenery.
Set off into the rugged dunes and endless wild beaches of Denmark's West Coast. You can drive your car, bike or ride horseback, as you soak up the sights across the whole area.
Feel the maritime past pulse through you at museums, lighthouses, galleries and historical buildings across the region and taste the fruits of the sea at West Jutland's towns and villages.
Dramatic dunes sweep inland to rolling hills and forests in this dynamic region. There are many ways to head out into Denmark's wide-open West and wonderful sights await.
