What a view from the top of the lighthouse! Absolutely worth climbing the hundreds of steps... Amazing the force of the wind from up there, it's almost impossible to stand up! The view is just breathtaking; the whole western coast of Jutland draws under your feet. The height is 57 meters.

The kro is a very old building with those very low ceilings and heavy beams. Very charming. Also there were old pictures everywhere from people long gone.
Nice service although my waitress apparantly was new at the job and her english wasn't that well. Which i thought surprising, anyway that didnt spoil the food.
I had a look at the plates that were served and they looked rather big so i decided to skip starters in favour of a desert. I choose a simple flatfish (plaice) with lemon and boiled potatoes. Excellent fried fish! As desert i had the creme brulee with vanilla ice and raspberry coulis. It has been a long while since i had such a good creme brulee.
Favorite Dish: Must be the creme brulee.

The local supermarket. If you're on the "booze cruise" (see my travelogue), buying liquour and sweets here is much cheaper than onboard. Note the 2 danes coming out of the store at 9 in the morning, already laden with beer...what kind of work ethics is that?
