    Hurup Kirke

    0.58 km

    Originally, Hurup Church was without a tower and aisles.

    In the church, you notice, among other things, the altarpiece, divided into four pictures, which Sven Havsteen-Mikkelsen has been responsible for. The altarpiece was inserted in 1981. The old altarpiece from around 1850 can now be seen on the wall in the organ room.

    The church's Romanesque baptismal font is probably as old as the church itself.

    The runestone in the cemetery outside the porch

    The runestone appeared when the dike was breached to make room for a new chapel. The inscription can (perhaps) be interpreted as follows: "Thormod, a well-bread "boy", raised this memory after N.N. his father (or brother)."

    Troll Ask of Ashøj

    1.86 km

    Up on the hill Ashøj, which with its 93 meters is Thy's highest point, there is a troll hiding in the forest.

    In a secret place, in the middle of a clearing, sits the troll Ask from Ashøj with a stone in one hand and a stick in the other. Through a treasure hunt of tracks in the forest, you can find out where Ash sits.

    The troll must entice both guests and locals out and experience the beautiful nature, which is also part of Thy and very nice, even though it is not part of National Park Thy.

    The troll was created by the international artist Thomas Dambo and represents the forces of nature. "If you treat nature badly, the trolls will come and beat you, eat your children or kill your hamster. But if you behave properly, it may help you build a nest, get up a tree or over the pelvis, "says Thomas Dambo.

    Especially for families with slightly older children, treasure hunting in the green is a fun activity. And the adventurous tree creature not only serves as a destination for a walk in the green, but is also meant for climbing.

    You will find the exact location and the tax card for it on Trollmap.

    And when you are in Ashøje Plantage, finally visit the lookout tower and enjoy the view of beautiful Thy.

    When Valdemar discovered the relationship, he let Little Kirsten dance to death. She was buried in Vestervig Cemetery. Prince Buris was blinded, gilded and chained to the church so he could just reach Little Kirsten's grave. When he died, he was buried in the same grave as Liden Kirsten.

    It is still customary for brides to lay a bouquet on the grave.

    Thyborøn Church

    14.29 km

    The modern church is built around the five meter high and three meter wide altarpiece by Niels Østergaard "The Blessed Day".


    Church decoration

    Painting by Peter Mock with the title Towards the light measures 485 x 215 m and is painted in oil on canvas with a few fields of gold leaf, which are connected to the altarpiece. Central to the image is the light, where the lighthouse and light rays form a cross, which is located on rocky ground - here the hip stone.

    To the left are ships on the dark sea, the compass rose and celestial bodies. Via the LED LIGHT you lead to the right side, to the safe harbor with the hometown's well-known silhouette.

    The idea of the picture is to depict the basic conditions of the fishing community in finding their way at sea - as well as through life.

    Bunker Museum Hanstholm - Denmark's largest bunker museum

    42.86 km

    It consists of Hanstholm's unique 2500m2 museum bunker, where several of the rooms have been restored to their original appearance, so you can see how the soldiers lived. In the bunker there are also some exciting exhibitions.

    The battery was built in 1941 together with a similar battery at Kristiansand in Norway, blocking the entrance to the Skagerrak, to keep the English fleet out. The battery consisted of four large 38cm guns, each of which had a weight of 110 tons. The guns could fire a distance of 55km... almost halfway to Norway!

    Interactive exhibition
    The exhibition center on top of the bunker houses the exhibition "Enemy & Neighbour - Hanstholm occupied!" The exhibition is about life in Denmark's strongest fortress during World War II. With the people in focus, the story is told by both the German soldiers and civilian life in the shadow of the fortifications, and how the occupiers and the occupied lived together.

    On tour with the ammunition train
    Hop on the museum train and take a tour in and around the battery where you pass through an ammunition bunker and one of the bunkers that housed the 38cm cannon. The museum train will take you through the historic terrain along the original narrow gauge track that the Germans built to transport the heavy ammunition to the cannons. The train runs every day during the summer and also in week 42 (Autumn Holiday). The trip is one kilometer long and lasts about ten minutes.

    Scenic walks in the occupants footsteps
    At Bunker Museum Hanstholm you will find a beautiful and varied forest that was before, just a bare and rugged dune landscape and home to many of the german army’s bunkers. Today you can go on wonderful walks in the nature here.

    Explore the many bunkers scattered across the landscape, some underground, others built as lookout points whose foremost role was to spot the enemy. During the year, there are also several guided bunker walks which are free to participate. The dates for the bunker walks can be found on the museum's website or facebook page.

    Hanstholm 1 Open-air Museum
    In the sand dunes south of Hanstholm you will find the open-air museum Hanstholm 1, which is one of the best preserved coastal batteries in Denmark. The Open-air Museum Hanstholm 1 is also part of the Bunker Museum Hanstholm, so start or end your museum day with a visit to the sand dunes. It’s a great experience for the whole family to walk around the hilly bunker landscape.

    Explore the beautiful, undisturbed surroundings and see if you can find all 19 bunkers. They are pretty much all open, so you can go inside and imagine what it was like to lie there and guard a part of the Skagerrak from land.

    The Atlantic Wall in North Jutland
    In collaboration with other bunker museums in North Jutland, and out of approx. 100 local WWII bunker locations, we have selected 24 of them which we think are really worth a visit. There is an info board at the locations, giving information about the site and its history.
