Things To Do

The Hirtshals Lighthouse in Denmark. Photo.

Hirtshals Lighthouse

Hirtshals Lighthouse that perches atop Stenbjerg is the town’s most magnificent landmark. The lighthouse was inaugurated in 1863 and was commissioned by King Frederik VII of Denmark. The king’s monogram adorns the tower just above the entrance. Hirtshals Lighthouse reaches a height of 35 metres. When climbing the 144 steps, you will be rewarded with amazing views over Northern Jutland and the North Sea.

Exhibitions and activities are often organised at the lighthouse. The charming café, Kaffestuen, is open during peak season and serves house-baked cakes. Read more about the lighthouse’s history.

Bunker Museum and Hirtshals Museum

The Bunker Museum consists of 60 bunkers from the Second World War hidden among the coastal grasslands by Hirtshals Lighthouse. The fortified bunkers were constructed by occupying German forces and are connected by a total of 3.5 kilometres of trenches. A beautiful and exciting area to wander through.

The whole area is designated as a museum, called the Bunker Museum. One of the larger bunkers features an exhibition about the harsh living conditions here during the war. If would like to learn more about the history of Hirtshals, you can also visit Hirtshals Museum.

The North Sea Oceanarium

One of Northern Europe’s largest aquariums, the North Sea Oceanarium, is a popular destination in Hirtshals and suitable for all ages. Here you can discover what is hidden below the waves in the depths of the North Sea. In the aquarium, which holds 4.5 million litres of water, there are over 7,500 fish, whales, seals and other sea creatures and mammals.

The fun doesn’t end here. Outside the oceanarium, there are close to 5,000 square metres of playgrounds with climbing frames, slides and other exciting activities.
