Læsø Lobster Festival

Læsø Lobster Festival is held every year on the first Saturday in August. This has been done since 2004 (with the exception of 2020 due to corona), and it has become a particularly popular event in North Jutland. Taste "Læsø's Gold" and watch celebrities from home and abroad compete for "The Golden Lobster Claw".

Tanghouses Day

Læsø is known for their unique seaweed roofs, whose cultural heritage is on the way to becoming a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

For many years the houses stood and fell into disrepair, but since 2016 a large-scale restoration project with support from Realdania et al. brought new life to many of the houses. And since 2017, the houses and Læsø's cultural heritage have been celebrated with Tanghusenes Dag. The event takes place in the run up to the autumn holidays with guided tours, open house etc

If you don't have the opportunity to participate, you can always follow our digitally guided Tanghus routes.
