Kathleen - Bördeland  (Urlaub mit größeren Kindern, August 2020)
What did you especially like about the holiday house?
“Das Haus ist sehr gemütlich und doch modern ausgestattet. Man findet im und am Haus und dem kleinen Schuppen alles was man benötigt. Es ist komplett blickdicht, sodass man auch einfach ganz für sich sein kann. Der eingezäunte Bereich im Garten ist vollkommen ausreichend, wenn sich der Hund draußen nach einem langen Spaziergang ausruhen möchte. Auch bei Regen kann man trocken auf der Terrasse sitzen und die Natur und die Stille genießen.”
Recommendations for future guests
“Der Fjörd ist in 5 Minuten zu erreichen. Durch die angrenzenden Wälder lässt es sich entspannt laufen oder mit dem Hund spazieren. / Zu empfehlen ist ebenfalls der Strand in Nymindegab und Søndervig. Die Orte Ringkøbing und Søndervig laden zum gemütlichen Stadtbummel ein. In Nr. Bork kann man wunderbar das Hafentreiben beobachten oder die Kinder gehen im Vikingerhafen auf Zeitreise. / Unbedingt gesehen und begangen haben muss man die Leuchttürme in Blåvand und Lyngvig. / Mit Kindern ist ein Besuch im Legoland Billund natürlich Pflicht, wo sich zum Abschluss des Tages große und kleine Kinder eine Erinnerung aus dem Shop mitnehmen können.”

Lise - Solbjerg  (Familieferie med større børn, July 2020)
What did you especially like about the holiday house?
“Vi elskede den lukkede have, omkranset af høj bevoksning, som ovenikøbet var indhegnet så vi bare kunne lade hunden løbe ud. Huset er meget nydeligt istandsat, hvor kvalitet har været prioriteret. / Når regnen silede ned kunne man stadig sidde i tørvejr på den overdækkede terrasse.”
Recommendations for future guests
“Wifi i huset er meget langsomt og til tider kan det endda knapt lade sig gøre at læse emails. Som lovet er der DR1, DR2 og TV2 (+ et utal af tyske kanaler) på fjernsynet, men vi havde aftener hvor TV2 ikke var tilgængeligt og signalet til DR-kanalerne forsvandt hver 10. sekund. Man skal derfor ikke have de store forventninger til at sidde foran skærmen om aftenen og slappe af.”
Else - Sabro  (Venneferie uden børn, July 2017)
What did you especially like about the holiday house?
“Det var ikke overfyldt med møbler og pynt. Det bedste var den indhegnede have, den hade hunden stor glæde af.”
Recommendations for future guests
“Nymindegab Strand er rigtig dejlig. Kør også en tur til hvide Sande og køb fisk. Restaurant Stauning Haven kan anbefales fik stegt flæsk ad libitum som serveres om torsdagen, høflig og hurtig personale som gene fortalte om havnen og de små huse. Havnen er meget hyggelig. Spiste frokost på Restaurant Stuen TH. som også kan anbefales.”

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.

Physical activities - Ringkøbing Fjord

Along the west side of the fjord, lie some of Denmark's best beaches. Here, you can enjoy a day out by the North Sea to the full. 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.
