Sønderho Old Bird Trap

Sønderho Duck Decoy is located at the coast south of Albue Bay. During the last few years the decoy has been renovated.

A duck decoy is a large scale trap with netted, curving pipes running off a pond. It was used to catch ducks for food, however, today the decoy is a living museum.

Fanø was the only location in Denmark for four decoys to be constructed, two of which were in use until 1931 when the original use and purpose of decoys was prohibited.

The decoy is open every day. Dogs are allowed but must be in a leash.

Sønderho Old Duck Decoy is open all day long - please remember to close the door. Entrance is free. Guided tours for groups can be arranged. Contact by mail:

The path to Sønderho Old Duck Decoy starts from the parking lot 8 kms south of Nordby/4 kms north of Sønderho.
