Take a walk in the past
Species from the steps of Djengis Khan and the Central European deciduous forests form a characteristic, floral element of Hindsholm.
Part of Fyns Hoved is declared a sanctuary for wading birds and birds of prey e.g. buzzards. Also other, rare specimen can be experienced, e.g. the Glanville Fritillary butterfly (melitaea cinxia) and the natterjack toad (bufo calamita). Further: grass snakes and vipers. Whereas the grass snake is absolutely harmless, the viper, of which more than 200 have been counted, has fangs and its bite is venomous. It is stone-deaf and reacts by fleeing upon vibrations in the soil, typically footsteps. Therefore, whereas man is usually not exposed to snake bites, dogs are in greater danger. They approach much faster and do not make so much vibration. Do not be afraid of the viper but pay it your respect and keep your dog under control! The special nature of precipitation creates a unique daylight, which has always attracted painters at all seasons.
At the very far end of Fyns Hoved relicts of German fortifications form WW2 are still recognizeable. The present road, ending at the parking area is build during the war to faciliate the heavy transport needed for those fortifications.
