Thyborøn is located at the end of Harboøre Tange, a narrow isthmus of stunning natural beauty, which has the crashing waves of the North Sea on one side and the relative serenity of the Limfjord on the other. The contrasts are breathtaking. Denmark's best beaches nestle here where the Limfjord meets the North Sea. There's a unique atmosphere created by the spray of salt water from the sea in combination with the gentle swell of fresh water in the fjord.
Thyborøn offers several internationally recognised attractions, including the Thyborøn Kystcentret (coastal exploratorium), the Jutland Aquarium and, not least, Sea War Museum Jutland, which exhibits a string of exciting artefacts from the Battle of Jutland – the greatest naval battle in world history – which took place in 1916. At the Memorial Park, large blocks of granite in the dunes mark where each ship sank and there is one figure for each person who died in the battle.
The town offers good shopping – and excellent inspirational restaurants and other eateries.
The Tourist Office rents the inner harbour of the Port of Thyborøn and provides marina facilities here for visiting yachtsmen. There are good pier berths and state-of-the-art facilities.
Each year, on the first Saturday in August, we celebrate the fisheries industry in Thyborøn at the annual "Fiskedag" (fisheries day). The event has become a popular tradition. As a visitor to the town, you can taste fresh fish and hear good music.
