Fresh fish at Skagen Harbor
In the far north of Denmark, Skagen is a postcard-perfect town with a harbor, a brewery and plenty of places to find the catch of the day. Fresh fish comes in daily to the harbor and you can buy it straight from the boat, or eat it in one of the town's high quality fish restaurants.
New Nordic cuisine in Aalborg
Denmark is home to the New Nordic movement, where the focus is on local and seasonal food. There are plenty of places to try it in West Denmark, including Aarhus' Michelin-starred restaurants, as well as Restaurant Textur, Det Glade Vanvid, Mortens Kro and many more in Aalborg.
Foraging at Thy National Park
In Thy National Park, foodie options include fishing tours from the town of Stenbjerg, foraging tours in the dunes, where you can find mushrooms and berries dependent on season, and visits to local shops and restaurants. Tip! Contact Thy National Park, Naturmad Thy or Øbo Tours to arrange guided tours with a focus on gastronomy in the National Park.
All the cake you can eat
We can't talk about the delicacies of West Denmark without mentioning cake. There's a tradition in the south of the area of creating cake tables piled high with 21 different types of cake. You can book a 'cake table' experience at Gram Castle - just remember to take it slow!
