Northern Jutland

Hanstholm’s impressive commercial harbour was completed in 1967; since then the town has developed into one of Denmark’s largest fishing ports and prominent industrial centres. There’s a good viewpoint over the harbour at the end of Helshagevej (follow the signs for ‘Havneudsigt’), where you'll also find the excellent Madbar.
