A monastery from the Middle Ages

Børglum Monastery

At Christmas, a popular Christmas market is also held at Børglum Kloster, which is worth a visit!

Historic landmark in Skørping

Regan Vest

60 meters underground in a chalk hill in Rold Skov you will find Denmark's deepest secret. Since the 1960s, the Regan West nuclear bunker has had the purpose of protecting the kingdom and the government in war-like situations, and has long been out of the public eye.
After a long hibernation, it was finally decided that the facility should be open to the public.

This means that eafter a long time of preparation to get the facility ready for the opening, Regan Vest is finally ready to open at the end of 2022.

National cycle route 5

East coast route

The East Coast Route is one of the national cycle routes that runs for a total of 666 km from Skagen to Sønderborg.

The first stages run along the east coast of North Jutland and are an excellent way to experience the east side of North Jutland.

Denmark's largest hiking dune

Råbjerg Mile

South of Skagen town is Råbjerg Mile, which is Denmark's largest hiking dune. The mile covers an area of as much as 2 square kilometers and it moves just as quietly through the landscape as it is said to migrate 15 meters to the north-east each year. Over time, plantings have been started in the area to slow down the mile, but it has since been protected. 

Råbjerg Mile is an exciting experience, as there are not many places in the country where you can experience an almost desert-like landscape!
