Raw foodstuffs of the highest quality and numerous creative chefs serving these delicacies for you make Himmerland West Coast a decided goal for every adventurous foodie.

 Gourmets throughout Denmark have long known that Vesthimmerland is the source of some of the finest fresh ingredients that Denmark has to offer.  Both the juicy and tender Himmerland meats and wild and cultivated versions of the meaty and delicate Limfjord oysters have long since found their way to many of the best restaurant kitchens together with the many other shellfish so abundant in the fjord.

Cockles, sea urchins, some of the world’s best blue mussels and fjord shrimp, which the local population fries lightly and eats — head and tail included — with mayonnaise and a slice of lemon.  There is no better summer snack!  Rinse it down with a refreshing white wine from Glenholm Vingård in Næsby.  Or let one of the region’s good eating establishments prepare and serve their delicacies for you.

In few places are the mussels as freshly steamed as at Kanalfogedens Køkken in Løgstør, and, if shellfish is not your thing, try the rustic land-based seasonal cuisine at Næsbydale Badehotel, Restaurant Kulgårdens traditional  smørrebrød (open-faced-sandwiches), or the famous stjerneskud (shooting star) at Hvalpsund Færgekro. A freshly fried fishball and a draft beer from one of the fish outlets in the small yacht harbors is no mean way of satisfying one’s craving for lunch either!

24 hours on the West Coast of Himmerland

A 90-kilometer-long west coast cannot be experienced in a single day.  But if 24 hours is all you have, here is a suggestion for an optimal use of your time.

Muslingebyen

The name Løgstør is mentioned for the first time in 1514, but in more recent times the town has been known as The City of Mussels due to its central location in the Limfjord mussel industry.  The town is rich in history and has an exciting market town atmosphere. 

Livø

Effectively shielded from the nearest highway by 4-5 kilometers of sky-blue Limfjord waves is hidden one of the Himmerland coast’s best-kept secrets.  There are no cars on Livø and farming on the island is 100% ecological.

From Ice Age to Present

The natural and cultural environment of Vesthimmerland provides a unique glimpse into Denmark’s history over 55 million years — from fossils to Stone Age culture and Viking Age fortifications to medieval cloisters and 19th-century manor estates.

Beaches

Ninety kilometers of west-oriented coastline provides ample opportunity to wrest a couple of days out of one’s vacation calendar in order to sunbathe on the beach while the little ones swim and play in the sand.
