Marion - 30926 Seelze  (Urlaub mit Freunden, April 2018)
What did you especially like about the holiday house?
“Die Lage war perfekt. Allerdings knarrte der Steg bei Sturm recht laut und es war fast immer Sturm.”
Gabriele - Wandlitz  (Urlaub mit Kindern und Freunden, December 2017)
Recommendations for future guests
“Die ältetse Stadt Riebe sollte man auf alle Fälle besuchen, sehr außergewöhnlich. Das Kulturzentrum in Arhus ist gerade für Regentage sehr zu empfehlen, aber man muss 1.5h Fahrzeit einplanen, es lohnt sich. Die Nordseeküste mit ihrem Hinterland ist ein Traum, die Häuser in den Hügeln unvergesslich. Die Menschen sehr nett, sehr ausgeglichen, sehr freundlich.”
What did you especially like about the holiday house?
“Die Aufteilung des Hausbootes ist sehr schön. Die Küche mit dem großen Tisch in der MItte bietet genug Platz. Die Verglasung an der West-und Ostseite des Hausbootes ist toll, weil man einen schönen Blick über den Hafen, bzw. über den Fjord hat.”
Jutta - Hamburg  (Urlaub mit Freunden, June 2017)
Recommendations for future guests
“Die direkte Lage am Ringköbingfjord ist für Wassersportler (Kiting, Surfen) ein Paradies. / Allerdings muss man auch wissen, dass ein Hausboot auf Wellen reagiert, bei heftigem Wind / auch schon mal etwas mehr in Bewegung gerät. Aber das macht ja auch den Charme des Hauses aus. / Ein Aufenthalt auf den südlichen Terassen ist durch die Lage des Hauses bei starkem Wind leider nur eingeschränkt möglich. Vom südlich gelegenem Wohnzimmer aus und vom unteren Schlafraum hat man einen herlichern Blick über den Yachthafen, der mit einigen Restaurants, Eisverkauf und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten übersichtlich gestaltet ist. Lebensmittel können in wenigen Gehminuten eingekauft werden. Der Rinköbingfjord mit einem kleinem Strand ist durch einen Weg und einer Hecke in 1 Minute erreichbar, was einen Badeurlaub mit Kindern im flachen Gewässer sicher zugute kommt. Angeln direkt vom Hausboot aus ist übrigens nicht möglich (auch wenn Dan-Center damit in der Beschreibung wirbt), da Angel im Hafengebiet grundsätzlich verboten ist. / / Leider gibt es auch Kritik am "Luxus-Traumhaus" beim Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis, denn die Sauberkeit lies sehr zu wünschen übrig (trotz Willkommen-Schild "Wir haben alles geprüft und wünschen Ihnen.....). Die Geschirr- ausstattung sollte ebenfalls überprüft werden. Ein Sonnenbad auf der oberen Terasse war leider nur für 1 Person möglich, die Sonnenliege gänzlich unbrauchbar und von 4 Stühlen mit verstellbarer Lehne waren 3 defekt ! Sehr schade... / / Grundsätzlich würden wir einen Urlaub auf einem Hausboot jederzeit wiederholen..Eine tolle Erfahrung.”
What did you especially like about the holiday house?
“Die Nähe zum Wasser ist super schön. Die drei Terassen laden zum Verweilen und Träumen ein. / Hier kann das rege Treiben im Hafen sozusagen aus der "VIP-Lounge"beobachtet werden. Die Lage ist schön.”
Werner - lÜDENSCHEID  (Urlaub mit Freunden, June 2017)

From the terrace on the 1st floor you can see the bird sanctuary Tipperne and all the way to the sand dunes next to the North Sea, it is an absolutely stunning panoramic views that must be seen. The boat has flat screens, satellite TV and stereo with CD and DVD player and aircondition. There is a music festival every year in week 31 and the house boat is located close to the venue. No letting to youth groups.

About the area

About Ringkøbing Fjord

Spend your holiday near Ringkøbing Fjord.

The Ringkøbing Fjord area, on the east side of the fjord, is a region that is characterised by its many holiday homes: from Bork Havn in the south, Hemmet Strand and Skaven in the centre, to Stauning in the north. It is situated in what is known as the "Nature's Kingdom", in what is Denmark's largest municipality. With its 300 sq. km., at 30 km. long and 8 km. wide, Ringkøbing Fjord is the largest of the inland West Jutland fjords. It is shielded from the North Sea by the narrow, long spit - Holmsland Klit - and connects to the North Sea at Hvide Sande via a lock.

A visit to Skjern Ådal with its bird observation tower, picnic area and footpaths is a must. Ringkøbing Fjord is an incredibly beautiful, unspoiled area, surrounded by large expanses of salt marshes. The fjord has been to important to fishermen who have benefitted from the rich fjord's rich animal and bird life down through the years. Today, Ringkøbing Fjord contains some of Denmark's most important areas for birds, which is why large parts of the area are protected (the Tipperne Reserve). Værnegene and the Tipperne Reserve provide resting/foraging areas for large numbers of waders and migratory birds.

The area is a "refuge" for animal and bird life, and restrictions are, therefore, imposed on us humans, both in terms of our means of transport and visiting times. Here, just for once, things are run on the animals' / birds' terms. Efforts are being made to to preserve the area in a hectic world where everything is constantly changing.

Stay in a holiday home near scenic Ringkøbing Fjord

DanCenter holiday home rentals has a large selection of holiday homes near Ringkøbing Fjord. In Bork Havn, Skaven and Stauning, the authentic harbour environments have been preserved and the focus is very much on the maritime atmosphere. Discover the harbour in Bork, where commercial fishermen tie up at the quayside and sell freshly caught flounder and plaice. The present meets the past here at the harbour on each era's terms. At the drying area, the nets and traps are dried by the fresh air. The harbour's history is conveyed interestingly through posters and old fishing gear displayed in the newly built fishing lodge on the quay. A holiday here should include a visit to the port of Bork. Hemmet Strand, a holiday home area, in a beautiful location right beside Hemmet Beach. Many of the holiday homes here are situated in a hilly, wooded area with paths leading to the lovely beach. At Skaven, you can watch the ferries cross Skjern Å (Creek) and, at Stauning, you can visit the Danish Aircraft Museum.

Incidentally, there are bike paths/cycle routes to and around the fjord (105 km.). Nearby: Nebel Rail Bikes. Try your hand at riding a rail bikes on the abandoned railroad.

About Vestjylland

The west coast of Jutland is characterized by the North Sea

- or Vesterhavet, as the Danes call it. The skies are wide and open in this part of Denmark, there's plenty of salt water spray, beaches that go on and on, and impressive scenery. The Limfjord countryside to the north is gentler, hilly and lush with small sounds, inlets and broads.

Sheltered behind the dunes of the west coast, there are huge plantations, and on the central Jutland moors, wide open meadows of heather. Skallingen, north of Esbjerg, is where the Wadden Sea begins with its characteristic tides and flat marshlands.

Along most of the west coast, there are long, wide beaches with fine white sand and large expanses of dunes. The sea here can be violent. In the Limfjord, the water is calmer and this is where you'll find many child-friendly beaches.

The destinations around Ringkøbing Fjord

- to name just a few. Bork Havn , Hvide Sande and Søndervig - the unique area where the fjord meets the sea. Holmsland Klit is the long, narrow sand spit that shields Ringkøbing Fjord from the North Sea. Holmsland Klit is about 40 km long and 1-2 km wide. High dunes, beds of heather and lush meadows characterise this unique area between the North Sea and Ringkøbing Fjord. A little further to the north are large, unspoiled areas in tranquil surroundings near the dunes and forests, the type of scenery that Vedersø and Husby are known for. From the 40 meter high cliff at Bovbjerg, there is a fantastic view of the sea and the countryside.

Denmark's westernmost point

Blåvandshuk is westernmost point. From here, you can see Horns Rev Offshore Wind Farm - one of the world's largest wind turbine parks. Blåvand Lighthouse is one of several dotted along the the west coast. In the area around the lighthouse, there are 50 bunkers, which are the remains of a fortification from World War II. What's more, not only here, but also all along the west coast, you can see the remains of bunkers.

Denmark's largest expanse of dunes

The large expanses of dune along the west coast are the largest in Denmark and the sea views here are endless. The inland plantations offer many opportunities to enjoy nature to the full; in Klosterhede Plantation south of Lemvig, you may spot a beaver, and in the plantations at Blåbjerg and Oksbøl, you'll find Denmark's largest population of wild game.

The narrow, spit at Holmsland Klit not only has long beaches, it is also a beautiful, protected nature reserve. Near Skjern Å (or Creek) and in the unique surroundings nearby, you may be lucky enough to run into an otter or even catch a salmon in the creek.
