What did you especially like about the holiday house?
“Das Haus ist wirklich toll. Abgesehen von der gemütlichen Einrichtung, lässt die Ausstattung keine Wünsche offen, es fehlt einfach an nichts. Der Wohnbereich und der Wintergarten laden zum Verweilen ein. Es gibt genug Spiele für Groß und Klein, ob Dart, Wikingerschach oder Fussball..wir haben alles genutzt. Wir haben schon viele Ferienhäuser gemietet aber keins hatte so eine umfangreiche Ausstattung. Einfach Klasse.”
Recommendations for future guests
“Der Skavenstrand ist sehr flach, für kleinere Kinder gut geeignet. Badeschuhe wären von Vorteil, ist doch etwas steinig. Wunderschöne breite Strände findet man in Söndervig und vor Hvide Sande (Bjerregard Strand). Ribe sollte man sich anschauen, kleine gemütliche Stadt. Beim Tex Mex Food am Skavenstrand bekommt man leckere Burritos und Tacos. Im Vergleich zu einem Restaurantbesuch in Dänemark, relativ günstig. Und das Eis ist unschlagbar. Unsere Kinder reden immer noch davon. Es gibt einen tollen Spielplatz, Fussball und Volleyballplatz. Rundherum ein schöner Ferienhauspark.”

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.

Attractions and sights to visit along 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.

South of Ringkøbing Fjord is Blåbjerg Dune Plantation, where you'll find Denmark's highest dune at 64 metres. The plantation is a mix of woodland and heathland, and is the obvious choice of you're looking for a place to hike or enjoy a bike ride, particularly on a mountain bike, which is recommended. 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.
