Danhostel Thisted, housed in a former school, is situated in the most beautiful surroundings in the heart of Thy. Welcome to our modern hostel where we ensure a peaceful and quiet stay. This is the ideal base for sports camps, school camps, course participants, families, groups and backpackers. We provide 22 rooms, some of which have private bathrooms. In addition, we offer free Wi-Fi, free parking, laundry facilities, a TV lounge, a well-equipped guest kitchen and bicycle rentals. Our substantial breakfast is always delicious and made from seasonal ingredients. The large garden with a small orchard provides opportunities to bask in the sun while the rest of the family make use of our playground. Our barbecue area, located just outside the door is available for use, and if you bring your bicycle, we have a secure shed at the end of the garden right next to our strawberry bed.
Thisted, located only 3 km from our hostel, is a cosy market town in Thy, located on the fjord. It has small, picturesque streets, specialty shops and a rich restaurant and café life. Enjoy the lively town when you go shopping, or take a guided tour of Thisted Brewery and try their organic beer (Thy Pilsner). The town's pedestrian street leads to the harbour by the fjord, which has yachts, cafes and restaurants, plus activities like sailing, swimming and rowing in boats or kayaks. Many visitors come to Thisted to enjoy Cold Hawaii, a surfer's paradise at Klitmøller. If you are not into water sports, then enjoy views from Hanklit, a 60-m high cliff, and admire the picturesque town of Mors and the nearby coastline from Hanstholm Lighthouse. Thisted Music Theatre has many plays, classical and popular concerts and hosts about 100 cultural events a year.
The area around the hostel is a major attraction. It is Denmark’s largest National Park. Here the waves from the North Sea rush towards the beach and the wind whips grains of sand onto the dunes and open landscape. Thy National Park is known for its unique and valuable natural areas, landscapes and diverse animal and bird population. The Park is home to large, contiguous forested areas and plantations such as Vilsbøl and Tvorup, which are perfect for horseback riding, hiking and cycling. Experience Hanstholm Nature Reserve, which has more than 30 species of birds. There are several lakes, including two of Denmark’s cleanest – Vandet and Nors, which have their own unique flora and fauna and are perfect for fishing.
Come to Thy and use Danhostel Thisted as a base to experience all the activities and attractions available.
