The unique location by the magnificent area around Skjern Å, gives your stay an extra dimension that you will hardly find anywhere else.

The hotel's restaurant is also one of the better in West Jutland, and especially the many traditional fish dishes are popular. The menu offers both well-prepared everyday dishes as well as elegant and exciting seasonal specialties. The hotel also has a cozy bar where you can regularly meet the host even behind the bar. Here he serves both drinks and a story or two.

Since ancient times, Denmark's westernmost main road has crossed Skjern Å between Tarm and Skjern. The route has been called Drivvejen, Studevejen and Kongevejen. In the winter of 1513, King Hans was on his way from Ribe to Aalborg with a large retinue, but right here in the water-filled meadows at Tarm Kær he fell off his horse. He was rescued ashore, but he was severely injured and died shortly afterwards of pneumonia. That is why the bridge over the river is called King Hans bridge, and a memorial stone on the southern bank of the river still remind crossers of this.

When the West Jutland longitudinal railway was built in 1875, it largely followed this old West Jutland Road, and the small village of Tarm became a large station town with market town potential. On Storegade, the city got its hotel, Bechs Hotel.

Bechs Hotel has 40 modern double rooms, all with shower and toilet, telephone, radio and TV. Indoors there is also a sauna, solarium, spa pool and billiards, all for free use by hotel guests. The same goes for the large outdoor roof terrace. The hotel organizes short breaks and golf holidays with a discount on green fees to nearby golf courses.

    Flyvergrav by Tarm

    1.14 km

    On the evening of March 12, 1945, an English Lancaster bomber with a crew of 7 was shot down by a German fighter jet near Lyne. The plane crashed between Vallund and Østergårde, and before the crash, 5 men parachuted out and were hidden with Danes in the area and then smuggled quickly to Sweden.

    The 2 crew members who died in the crashed plane got local people out and transported the bodies to Tarm Hospital. The Germans came the next day and demanded that the bodies be handed over. The bodies were driven out into the plantation, and buried without marking a burial site. The local haulier who had driven this transport was able to designate the site, which was marked with flags and square stonework on the day of liberation on 5 May.

    On 14 June 1945, the parish council decided to donate the area for the construction of 2 burial sites, and maintain it in the future. The burial site was constructed for funds raised, and the circular ring wall of cobblestones was erected at the same time as the demarcation of the burial site.

    On Sunday, August 12, 19455, there was a church funeral service at the cemetery.

    "The Super egg is a geometric innovation in this century and appear as a beautiful,harmonious and timeless sculpture, signal Skjern as a dynamic and progressive town.Such sculpture will place Skjern on the art map of Denmark."
    Such wrote manufacturer Th. Skjøde Knudsen in 1994, when he in connection with conservation associations competition for decoration of the roundabaut Bredgade/Søndergade in Skjern first time proposed the superellips as decoration in the roundabaut in Bredgade, but the idea won then no response.

    The reasons for choosing "The Super egg" was, that Piet Hein hat some connection to Skjern, from which his eggs from " The Super Egg World Center" were sold to over 30 countries."The egg production" was then a successful collaboration between Piet Hein and Th. Skjøde Knudsen.

    Some years later,as the roundabaut Arnborgvej / Ringvejen was made, the idea was taken up again by then-City Manager Erik Lorentzen. They got permission to use Piet Hein´s Superellipse, and applications were send to local firms, Banks and various foundations.

    The Sculpture by Ringvejen is made of silver bronzed fiberglass, over 4 meters high and has cost about 400.000,- kr.

    Skjern Å

    7.38 km

    This century, in the Skjern Å river valley, major invasive actions were taken against the rivers natural flow. After a series of isolated attempts at building dams and thereby controlling the river, in the 1960s, a very large drainage project was set in motion. The winding river was forced into straight canals and pumping stations were built, to lead the water away from the river valley. 4000 ha of meadows and bogs were transformed into agricultural lands, which was then in shortage; the damp meadows, haystacks, and livestock were replaced with productive grain fields and agricultural machinery.

    However, today – about 50 years later – the meadows and wetlands have been restored. The Skjern Å Nature project includes approximately 2200 ha or about half the area which was drained in the 1960s. The project in the Skjern Å river valley is the largest nature restoration project in northern Europe and it was begun in 1999 – after years of planning – and finished in 2003. The restoration has made the area a unique piece of nature of international importance and it is the only nature area in Denmark to receive the European award Europa Nostra, because it has become such a thriving piece of nature and wildlife, which benefits animals and people equally.

    Thanks to Real Dania’s project ’Stedet Tæller’, three of the pumping stations were restored into fully functional pumping stations. The project is about enhancing the experience of the area, as well as the accessibility. The pumping station to the south east, between Tarm and Lønborg, has been equipped with viewing platform; Pumping Station East has had an extension built on the roof, and Pumping Station North has been equipped with an elevator to its tower and a restroom for the disabled. Small architectural changes show how a classic, physical, and industrial element like a pumping station can be transformed and be bestowed with a new meaning and thereby cast light on the potential of these far out areas, showing the way to a new positive development of areas outside Denmark’s most populated areas.

    Lydum Watermill and Power-station

    16.29 km

    Lydum Watermill and Power-station is located north of Varde, and has since 1903 been used for electricity production for the local community in the area. However, the Lydum watermill can be traced back to the 14th century, when people began to use the water to grind grain. Due to industrialization, the watermill was converted into a power plant.

    Today, the watermill is out of order, and has instead been continued as an experience center. This is because the association Lydum Mølle took over the mill in 2003 with a view to continuing it as an experience center. That is why Lydum Mølle offers communication of everyday life at a direct current plant in the 50s and 60s.

    In addition, the mill is also a starting point for excursions and outdoor activities in the beautiful landscape along Lydum Å.
