Bulbjerg Badehotel, bunker museum and World War II
From 1907 until World War II, there was actually one seaside hotel at Bulbjerg. It was called Bulbjerg Badehotel and was occupied by the Germans during World War II. The Germans used the place as a radio station, and unfortunately chose to blow up the seaside hotel when they evacuated the place in 1944.
During the war, Bulbjerg, with its phenomenal outlook, was an important strategic point for the Germans. Therefore, you will also find lots of bunkers in the area, and at the far end of Bulbjerg is an old observation bunker designed as a small museum that is worth a visit.
When you stand on top of Bulbjerg, you can, depending on the weather, see the rock, Skarreklit, a beach pillar of 16 meters, which until 1978 towered in the landscape. However, this one cracked that year, so you can now only see the plinth. Skarreklit was named after the cormorant that bred and lived here.
