About Vestjylland syd
South-west Jutland - Wadden Sea, oisters, seals and authentic island holidays
We begin at the sourt-west part of the country with the wide marsh land and the Wadden sea which is part of UNESCO's World Heritage List. A good way to experience the area is by walking the Wadden Sea or trying an oister or seal safari. Rømø is southernmost island of the Wadden Sea and it has some of the widest sandy beaches in Europe. North of Rømø, located across the sea from Denmark's oldest town Ribe, you will find Mandø, which is another of the natural gems of Denmark. And last, but not least, there is the old holiday island Fanø with its charming towns Nordby and Sønderho along with the magnificent beaches at Fanø Bad and Rindby Strand.
Ocean and fjord - popular beaches with endless horizons
Just a few kilometres north of Fanø you will find some of Denmark's most popular holiday areas like beads on a string. In Blåvand, Henne and Vejers you will find fantastic beaches and endless horizons. The towns are especially known for their beach life, shopping and large number of activities for children. On some of the beaches you can find remnants from the past in the abandoned bunkers from World War 2. In 2017, the Tirpitz Museum designed by the renowned designer Bjarke Ingels opened in Blåvand. The museum is a portal to the secret treasures of the west coast. And unlike the colossal and invasive cement bunkers the Tirpitz is open and beautifully integrated in the dunes.
On the islands Rømø, Mandø and Fanø you can experience the
powerful Wadden Sea. Here nature has the power. It is for
instance only possible to go to Mandø at low tide. The
Wadden Sea has a unique and rich wild life with especially
migrating birds feeding on their way south. On Fanø you can
see a large number of seals. If you plan to visit one or
more of the islands it is a good idea to bring your bike.
The islands have bike trails leading you through the
countryside. All 3 islands also have amazing beaches.
In Esbjerg, the biggest town of the region,
has a lot of cultural offers and fine shopping
possibilities. Visit the
Esbjerg Art Museum or the Esbjerg water tower, one of the

What is a cleaning audit charge?
We charge customers a small cleaning audit fee to prepare the room for the next guest, even as some outgoing guests prefer to clean the room themselves. Are such guests still required to pay a cleaning charge? Yes. Please let us explain.
While we appreciate guests cleaning the room themselves, we nonetheless conduct an audit to ensure that the room is in excellent shape. The cleaning audit fee we levy is for the time and effort involved in checking that our cleaning standards have been met, so that we can provide our customers with the best experience.
