Discover the Wadden Sea region - a Unesco Heritage site

The Wadden Sea National Park is included in the Unesco Heritage List. It`s an amazing location with the most important wetlands in the world with many birds and wildlife. It is very recommended to visit the Wadden Sea Centre here. The 1000 m2 exhibition centre which opened in February 2017 gives you insights into the Wadden Sea National Park secrets with the newest technology, and you get close to the birds you normally watch at a distance.


South Funen Archipelago is one of the most beautiful spots in Denmark

Beautiful beaches  in South Denmark

The Southern Jutland`s coasts invite for relaxation and activities, especially during the summer season. On the Eastern coastline, you find the inlets and the Little Belt (Lillebælt).

On the West coast beautiful beaches, you can visit Henne Beach or Blåvand Beach. The water is very clean, and it´s nice to bath here during the summer. At some beach locations, you can park your car right where you want on the beach as on Rømo which is one of the widest beaches in Northern Europe. 


Exciting activities as a bridge walking is possible in Middelfart
