At the westernmost point the blue water waits
Even those who are new to Denmark will certainly have heard of the tranquil tourist town of Blåvand at least once before. The name derives directly from the High Danish and means in German translated "blue water". And who has ever stood at one of the seemingly endless sandy beaches of the area and has looked at the beautiful North Sea, who will understand the naming absolutely.
The location of Blåvand is also very interesting, as Blåvandshuk, the headland in this area, marks the westernmost point of Denmark. Here is also the lighthouse "Blåvandshuk Fyr", from which a great view over the great landscape can be enjoyed. The westernmost lighthouse in the country also warns the passing ships of the Horns Rev, a two-part sandbar in the North Sea, which in the rough past has led to numerous shipwrecks and also played a significant role in the Battle of the Skagerrak.
Blåvands beaches, which are car-free, can also be considered as their own attractions. As already mentioned, there are miles of sandy beaches and clear water, which is constantly awarded the "blue flag" for excellent quality. If you are looking forward to extended bathing days, water sports such as windsurfing and beach activities such as hang gliding, shell fishing and beach volleyball, you will certainly visit the beautiful resort again and again.
Small place and large holiday home area at the same time
Blåvand has become one of Denmark's most popular destinations over the last few decades when it comes to a fun-filled holiday. It's no wonder that this is the largest holiday home area on the North Sea side. With a number of just under 200 inhabitants, there are around 2,000 holiday homes! Due to this multitude of very different summer houses Blåvand is no longer just a high season, but now in every season a popular holiday destination.
Despite this popularity, Blåvand presents itself as a relaxed and child-friendly place, which certainly has to do with the Danish serenity. The "Hygge" can therefore also exist, if more holidaymakers than residents stay in the place, stroll through the streets and let the sun shine on the beach. And when the refreshing North Sea wind sweeps through the area in the off-season, the family-friendly shops of the place can be explored, local museums give interesting insights and especially the small holidaymakers are certainly looking forward to a visit to "Blåvand Bolcher", which has been producing delicious sweets since 1864 and the oldest confectionery factory in Denmark.
Shopping, nature and mules on the beach
Blåvand offers a great landscape scenery and many opportunities to stroll and shop. Shops for clothing and sporting goods, shops, sidewalk cafes and restaurants as well as cozy pubs draw a colorful townscape. The shops on the main street are also open all year round and mostly every day, so that a varied shopping day can also be done on Sundays. In the area there are also many arts and crafts to admire, such as in the candle factory, glass blowing, in the pottery and amber grinding.
If you prefer to spend time in nature than go bargain hunting, it's best to set off on foot, by bike or even on horseback. In the last century, large forest areas were created for reforestation, which have now spread strongly and many nature trails available. The landscape around Blåvand is also characterized by large heathland, which invite to long walks. Kærgård Plantation is home to a particularly beautiful heathland area, and Blåvand's plantations are home to Denmark's largest stock of noble deer. For ornithologists, a visit to Filsø is certainly interesting: in the past, the water was one of the largest lakes in Denmark, but today it is also used as a bird sanctuary.
It is important to know that in the area around Blåvand there can sometimes be military exercises. In most cases, the area is freely accessible and on the beach are still many bunkers from the Second World War. Four of these bunkers, located between Skippervej and Lille Strandvej, were provided with metal heads and tails by the English artist Bill Woodrow, who are often perceived as stylized horses. These are mules, because the artist wanted to draw attention by the robust but barren animals on the fact that the Danes have indeed survived the occupation, the bunkers but never multiply.
