Blokhus sculpture park

Experience the world's largest sandcastle and much more!

The sculpture park in Blokhus is an outdoor park of over 20,000 m2 between forest, beach and city. The park contains perhaps the largest sculpture exhibition in Denmark, and the sculptures consist of, among other things, sand, wood, stone, granite, concrete, metal and bronze. They are all beautiful works of art, where attention is paid to every detail.

Between the sculptures, you can also experience and feel yourself in the Gardens of the Senses, which consist of a sea of different flowers and plants.

The park in the summer with lots of life

Sand sculpture festival

The park started as a sand sculpture festival, and it still is to this day. This year is the 10th time the park has held its festival, and this year's theme is "From Ice Age to Now".

The sand sculptures take you on a journey that stretches all the way back to when the land was covered in ice and ancient man hunted large mammoths to survive, then through the Bronze Age and the Viking Age.

You can also learn more about occupation and the post-war period, so as not to forget the global times, and the time right now. The festival officially opened on 1 May 2022, and ends 30 December.

Below you can see a quick rendering of how the sculptures for the festival were built.

Magical Christmas

The blockhouse sculpture park welcomes you to a magical Christmas market from 5 November. There is Christmas cheer in every nook and cranny, and there is almost a guarantee of an adventurous experience in the park at Christmas.

The fairytale experience continues when the park opens up for their magical Christmas light show. The Christmas spirit fills the entire park, with its impressive decorations illuminated in the beautiful Christmas light and sound show. More than 2 million Christmas lights in fantastic colors and designs create a very special experience.

The lights are sculptures in themselves that take shape in e.g. a 46 meter long light and sound tunnel, Christmas sleighs with reindeer, a giant Christmas tree of almost 18 metres, twinkling poinsettias, illuminated snowmen and Santa Clauses, angels and even Disney Christmas characters, etc.
