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.
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.
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.
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. Afterwards our interactive screens for tourists were improved, both in appearance and usefulness. Right now we have 38 of these screens throughout the area. Therefore, we welcome feedback from those who use our website and interactive screens at any time, so that we can improve them further. Ringkøbing Fjord Turisme and Ringkøbing-Skjern Kommune have been working on several projects concerning our beaches, urban renewal and fjord access.
