Experiences in Thy

Thy offers experiences for both young and old, and therefore it is an obvious holiday destination for the whole family. The raw nature on Jutland's west coast guarantees memorable nature experiences - Thy has much more to offer than just the breathtaking nature.

We have compiled an overview of the best and most interesting experiences in Thy.

Main attraction for the whole family

Jyllandsakvariet in Thyborøn

At Jyllandsakvariet in Thyborøn you can get up close to all the exciting fish that live in both the North Sea and the Limfjord. The place is equipped with various mixing basins, where on certain days you can also help to feed the many fish in the basins.

If you would rather experience the nature around beautiful Thyborøn, you can just hop on board the local tractor bus, where you can go on an oyster, seal or amber safari.

Free activity for both young and old

The bunker museum Bulbjerg

Right next to the west coast of Jutland by Bulbjerg is a small free bunker museum. Here you can experience war memorials from World War II. At the small museum you can experience old crew bunkers, concrete foundations for machine gun positions and concrete roads.

The museum is open during the day and is an ideal activity for the whole family.

Main attraction for the whole family 

Lodbjerg Lighthouse

In the middle of the impressive nature in Thy National Park is Lodbjerg Lighthouse, from where you can experience a breathtaking view. 

During World War II, an attempt was made to dig a tunnel from the lighthouse to a bunker at the back of the lighthouse, and therefore the 35 meter high lighthouse to this day is a little crooked.
