An enchanting view of the sand dunes from the restaurant

At the top of the dune furthest west in Jutland, Nymindegab Kro is literally on the edge of Ringkøbing Fjord and Naturpark Vesterhavet, and no matter why you want to visit West Jutland, we at Nymindegab Kro can create a fantastic setting for your visit.

You can go on an inn stay to have an unforgettable experience with the person or people you love, you can use an inn stay to explore the gastronomic spectrum or you can go to do some fun physical activities. Whatever your purpose with the stay, you will find it here!

Nymindegab Kro tempts with a magnificent restaurant, from which you have a breathtaking view of the dunes, the fjord and the high West Jutland sky. Our restaurant is a playground for our chefs and waiters. Gastronomy is something we focus a lot on at Nymindegab Kro. The seasons are drawn into the menu, and we are happy to accept a special challenge.

Our menu is constantly changing, but there are always creatively composed menus, which are prepared from scratch with the best ingredients of the season. Overall, the inn's goal is to provide guests with great gastronomic experiences in informal surroundings. Below the high dunes, the sandy beach stretches for miles and invites to play and swimming on hot summer days as well as fresh walks in other seasons, where the North Sea may appear from its harsh side.

Nymindegab Kro was originally a four-lane farm, where the serving of food and drinks was established in the middle of the 19th century. The West Jutland nature with sea and fjord attracted many painters and other artists, and Nymindegab was in fact for a period a kind of West Jutland Skagen. One of the first painters was the young Laurits Tuxen, who came here from 1879, and the composer Carl Nielsen wrote some of the music for the opera Maskerade while he was in Nymindegab.

Unfortunately, the inn burned down in both 1936 and 1943, and the inn that stands here today has been completely renovated from basement to attic. In 2002, a completely new room wing was built, and in 2006, state-of-the-art course and conference facilities were established.

Worth knowing

32 modern rooms and 10 hotel apartments (42 rooms in total) 800 meters from the North Sea. Short breaks and gourmet stays. It is easy to take an active holiday in the area: You can play golf, windsurf, fish, ride and watch birds, take the packed lunch on a bike ride or row a canoe trip on Ringkøbing Fjord.

    Nymindegab Museum

    0.38 km

    In 1879, Laurits Tuxen embarked on a journey from an artist’s colony in France along the west coast of Jutland and stopped in Nymindegab. The young artist fell in love with the enterprising fishing village, which was the largest on the West Coast at the time. The area around Nymindegab was a completely untouched part of Denmark, where life went on in harmony with the sea. Tuxen was deeply fascinated by the endless golden dunes, the roaring sea and the local population. For an artist looking for motifs, it was a magical place to land. Afterwards, Laurits Tuxen returned to the area over and over again, and founded the artist colony Nymindegabmalerne, which attracted artists from Copenhagen. Nymindegab also developed in the years around World War I into a favourite tourist destination for top-class bathers. They took the long journey in both trains and horse carriages to spend the summers at the seaside hotel out here on the westernmost edge of the country.

    At the Nymindegab Museum, art and cultural history merge when works by Laurits Tuxen, Maria Thymann, Oscar Matthiesen, Johannes Larsen and others are accompanied by stories of the cultural meeting of the local fishing population and the painters and bathers from the big city.  Come and hear stories about the work of the 'esepigerne’, the fishermen’s fate and Dorthea’s songs about life and death by the great sea. You can also hear stories about the bathers’ holidays in the area, the local craftsmen, the many lives of the inn and, not least, the painters who, like Laurits Tuxen, found their motifs by the fjord, the sea and among the valiant West Jutlanders they met here.

    Tipperne

    8.91 km

    Tipperne, a peninsula in the southern end of Ringkøbing Fjord, has for decades been under conservation in order to maintain an undisturbed breeding, feeding and resting environment for swimming and wading birds. And it has proven to be a success – today, Tipperne is one of the most important resting places for migrating birds in Denmark. Every year, thousands of wading birds from Scandinavia and Siberia visit the area. These annual migrations between winter quarters and breeding areas are a spectacular sight. In July-August, where migration is at its highest, you can see dunlins, sparrows, sandpipers and European golden plovers. And the swan, the Danish national bird, comes to visit all year through.

    PLEASE NOTE: March 1st - July 31st: Open Wednesday and Saturday from 09.30 a.m. to 03.30 p.m. August 1st - October 31st: Open all week days from 09.30 a.m. to 03.30 p.m. Access only allowed by car. Getting out of the car is prohibited along Tippervejen. Visitors by foot and bike are not allowed out of consideration for the bird life. It is only allowed to go by foot on the grass area near Tipperhuset, in the bird observation tower and along the marked trail to the bird hide. It is not allowed to bring dogs to Tipperne. Please make sure to leave Tipperne unrequested before closing time.

    Filsø

    13.24 km

    With the re-establishment of Filsø Lake, West Jutland has regained one of its largest nature areas, after the lake was dry for generations and the seabed was cultivated. When the foundation Aage V. Jensen Naturfond acquired the land, the water was led back into the lake during 2012, resulting in a record-breaking number of birds resting in and around the lake during autumn. Geese, ducks, wading birds, sea eagles and ospreys are just some of the interesting birds, which you can see from the bird hides and observation points around the lake. The combination of meadows, wetlands and heath areas ensures great conditions for breeding birds and interesting plants. The grazing animals in the area prevent the landscape from overgrowing, which would mean that several animal and plant species could not maintain their existence.

    Skjern Å

    17.63 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.
