    Wind, Weather and Wonderful Expanses in West Jutland

    When on holiday in West Jutland there will be many things to discover and experience each day.

    Many Possibilities
    West Jutland has many exciting activities on the menu, so experience the amazing black leopards at Jutland Park Zoo in Herning or the white, sandy beach which stretches across the North Sea. Try skiing, windsurfing, finding the right fishing rod to go angling in the sea, or viewing the fjords and the region's many islands. Spend a day in a national park, a bird sanctuary or take a night trip with the watchman on Ringkøbing's charming streets. What about something to eat? Should the menu consist of world-class Nordic cuisine at one of Denmark’s fine restaurants, smoked fish in the scenic area of Hvide Sande, or a tasty pizza at one of the many shops in the area? The possibilities are endless. With only a few km separating the various Danhostels - each with its unique charm and knowledgeable hosts - plan the optimal route from accommodation to attraction while on your holiday.
    Mønsted and Daugbjerg Limestone Mines
    Visit the world's largest limestone mine at Mønsted and the slightly lesser-known Daugbjerg Limestone Mine. These are a part of Denmark’s incredible history. Go underground and through the endless labyrinths. Hear the sounds of the hardworking miners and the screeching bats in the curved corridors and mazes. When you stay at Danhostel Stoholm or Danhostel Viborg, you are close to these exciting locations.
    Fantastic Beaches
    From Blåvand in the south to Hvide Sande further up the coast, you will find some of Denmark's best beaches which stretch all the way to the beautiful area of Skagen. Visit Blåvand Lighthouse and stand on Denmark's westernmost point. Experience the cosy environment at Blåvand Beach, an obvious trip when you spend the night at Danhostel Blåvandshuk in north Oksbøl. The areas of Henne Strand and Nymindegab, favourite areas for winter bathers, is a little further north. Try the free sauna during the cold season at Danhostel Henne Strand. This beautiful area is close to Danhostel Nymindegab which has Golf Park West mini-golf course. Finish your adventures at the cosy beach and harbour in Hvide Sande near Ringkøbing Fjord. Stay at Danhostel Hvide Sande, for reasonable prices.
    Ringkøbing Town and Fjord
    The town of Ringkøbing is one of Denmark's oldest and most well-preserved market towns. The old town centre with its square and church are picturesque and well-preserved. Tour the centre and fjord and take advantage of free parking throughout the town. Make the most of all there is to see and sleep well at Danhostel Ringkøbing.
    Bovbjerg fyr
    Bovbjerg Lighthouse
    The red Bovbjerg lighthouse located at Bovbjerg Cliffs (Klint) is a favourite tourist destination near the North Sea. Take a dip in the waters below the cliff then visit the café by the lighthouse, eat delicious food and buy local specialities. Bike to Bovbjerg Lighthouse which is only 5 km from Danhostel Fjaltring.
    Søby and Its Surroundings
    Søby, located between Brande and Herning, has beautiful scenery including Søby Lake. The eastern end of the lake has a small beach great for swimming during summer. Take a trip to Søby Brown Coal Museum (Søby Brunkulsmuseum) which has 1,100 hectares of protected area with sand dunes, brown coal pits and museums. South of the lake is a large forested area with lakes and meadows. These areas are close to Danhostel Herning or Danhostel Brande.
