These wild and untameable horses have turned out to be helpful in maintaining meadows and grasslands because they eat both dry grasses and heather. That means that they keep the vegetation short trimmed, which provides space for wild flowers and other vegetation.
23 year old Sigrid Kongshøj-Munch has attended Hvide Sande Masterclass since the beginning of 2006. She says:
It is a grand experience to witness a classical concert. To distinguish the individual instruments, to hear how the notes blend, to catch elements of the theme and hear them develop, and to watch the conductor’s movements and expressions makes everything melt together and become the work of art that the composer intended.
Maries Madbutik (food shop) is somewhat of an institution in Ringkøbing; or maybe Marie is the institution. The fine lines of her face, brought on by a thousand smiles, and her philosophical approach to life’s unpredictability and diversity tell the story of a cook who has had a rich life.
Would you like your friends and family to receive a different kind of postcard, telling them about your best holiday experiences in Søndervig, Hvide Sande, and the general area? That will be possible from August 6th to September 13th in SuperBest in Søndervig where ‘The Great Guestbook of Denmark’ will be located.
In connection with the culture festival Bølgen (The Wave), Vestjyllands Kunstpavillon is organizing an open and collected installation of blue works of art – the vernissage will take place on August 24th.
These services gather crowds for a unique experience; maybe you will be able to digest your day here in the beautiful scenery. There are no chairs here; you bring your own blanket or pillow and you are also welcome to bring snacks and maybe a cup of coffee.
Shock in Hvide Sande
Shock Wave marks the beginning of a two month festival in Mid and West Jutland. At the opening a selection of stars will perform in the different stages; rappers will perform with classical musicians, and professionals will perform with amateurs.
Clay is a wonderful material. You can construct all shapes from it and make it look like anything – or nothing. Eight Danish artists have created a series of works that appeal to the imagination. There are delicate little sculptures constructed with thin girders, organic tubes, and gigantic diamonds that have a metallic shine to them. There are also fragile white letters which can barely be distinguished from the clay and which form the word Columbine.
These products benefit both locals and tourists, and the association makes a huge effort to market them, on networking, and on timing and launching the annua market, which travels around the fjord and is held in Hvide Sande this year.
The figures are made of bronze by Jens Galschiøt and they have been borrowed from him by the city of Ringkøbing.
In Ringkøbing you can also see Jens Galschiøt’s sculpture ’Survival of the fattest’ or ’Fat Lady’ in the harbor which Ringkøbing has bought.
The eight sculptures are part of the group Ending Homelessness (2010-2013) of 13 figures in 1:1 size. They have travelled all over Europe and have been exhibited in the European parliament.
There is ample opportunity to participate in activities that don’t overwhelm your budget. Here are some suggestions:
There is plenty of opportunity to have a great vacation here. When you go out you can:
We offer a variety of fish and herring courses while you enjoy some smooth jazz; sit in the sun (or inside if the weather doesn’t permit it) and have a good time. Big crowds gather here and these concerts are great opportunities for meeting people. The soft jazz echoes through all of Søndervig and it’s a wonderful combination with the aromas of the freshly cooked fish and the taste of a cold beer – guaranteed to get you in a good mood.
For centuries, traders, hagglers, cattle drivers, and travelers followed a network of cattle driving roads along the western coast of Jutland. The cattle roads from Limfjorden’s pastures to the markets in Schleswig-Holstein tracked through desert West Jutland heaths, inland dunes, impassable bogs and river dales.
When you bring your dog to Denmark it must have a passport, it must be vaccinated for rabies, and it must have an ID-tag.
Passports for dogs:
- Your vet can issue your dog's passport when he vaccinates it for rabies.
On Christmas Eve 1811, one of the worst ship wrecks ever occurred south of Thorsminde. The two British warships St.George and Defence were wrecked and almost 1400 lives were lost.
At Strandingsmuseet St.George, the story about the two ships is told along with the stories about the thousands of ship wrecks that have been found in the North Sea.
