Hvide Sande - Sense the North Sea!
Experience the North Sea!
Here by the North Sea, you feel the wind in your hair, smell the salt, feel the sand between your toes, and feel the water on your body; then you return to your holiday home refreshed with messy hair and sand between your toes. Then you have really felt the North Sea! The fresh air from the North Sea may tire you, but it is a wonderful kind of fatigue; a fatigue that makes your sleep good and healing, so that you wake up full of energy the next day. So, come and renew your energy with us, while you experience the North Sea. We are sure it will do you good and that you will enjoy yourself.
A Soulful Destination
Part of Denmark's 7000 km long coast line lies in this area; the next door neighbour is the UK. Here, life is in unison with nature and has always depended on it. Therefore, the area has a soul which can be sensed by all who visit here. The North Sea has always been both a vast and dangerous companion, that has cost the lives of many, but which has also brought many foreign sailors to the area, due to the many shipwrecks on the coast. Many activities are connected with the North Sea, because it has been the primary source of income for a lot of people. For example, the lighthouse guided the fishermen so they could find their way back to the coast.
Towns and Experiences
There are some interesting towns in the area; both seaside resorts, market towns, seaports, small fjord harbors, and villages, which are all unique. The locals take pride in their town and countryside, and they work hard to preserve them. In these towns, there are old trade traditions and good service is a priority. The experiences you can have in the local nature, in the water, or in your holiday home are fantastic. Also, building sand castles has become an art form; old railway tracks have become rail-cycling routes; ferries can be pulled across rivers; he wind is the strongest opponent on the bikepaths; and the fresh fish taste delicious.
The Official Tourist Organisation
Improving our digital image:
Hvidesande.dk is the website for the official tourist organization Ringkøbing Fjord Turisme and it was in 2013 the first of a series of improvements of our digital image in Den Europæiske Socialfond. After that our interactive screens for tourists were improved - as well the appearance as the usefulness. We have right now (September 2014) 31 of these screens throughout the whole area. Therefore we welcome feedback from those who use our website and interactive screens at any time, so that we may improve them further. Destination Ringkøbing Fjord and Ringkøbing-Skjern Kommune have been working on several projects concerning our beaches, urban renewal and fjord access.
