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.

There are 11 officially marked bathing beaches on Himmerland West Coast, but with no fewer than 90 kilometers of coastline there are actually far more nice swimming beaches where you and your family can sit for a few hour dozing in the sun with a refreshing dashes into the waves.  In some places the beach is covered with small pebbles, in other places mussel shells, but in many places there are fine sandy beaches, and rarely do you have to go out more than a couple of meters into the water before there is a soft sandy bottom.  If you don’t care to make your way over stones to the water, find one of the many swimming jetties along the coast.  These are perfect for kids’ net-fishing for crabs, shrimp and small fish.  Remember to bring a pail and your Speedo or bathing suit!  In Løgstør there is a nice harborside swimming place which is extremely popular in the summer, but if you have small children along who like to swim, the beach near Trend with its shallow waters is a better choice.  Both old and young can enjoy the fact that the water temperature in the Limfjord is consistently a few degrees warmer than that of the North Sea.  The warm water, gentle waves, and the considerable distances between beach umbrellas enhance the Limfjord beach experience.

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.
