    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.

    Fjord line has connection from Hirtshals to several norwegian towns and i was very happy with the ride i had on one of their ferries to Kristiansand.
    They are big modern fast ferries and i was first worried that i would have to stay in a seat the whle journey, but they were really nice and had a couple of restaurants and a shot.
    The cheapest seats were sold out when i went so i had to pay a little extra for a first class seat but they were really comfy and worth the 10 extra euros i paid.

    The prices vary depending on when you book them and it's generally cheaper if you book well in advance on their website.

    All in all this is a very nice company that i would be more than happy to use again.

    These are todays ferry routes from Jutland to Norway and Sweden.
    Both Color Line, Fjordline and Stena Line have excellent booking sites on the internet.

    Hirtshals has ferry connections to Larvik (Superspeed 2 Color line). Kristiansand (Superspeed 1 Color line) Kristiansand (Fjordline) Stavanger and Bergen(Fjordline).
    Fredrikshavn has a Stena Line boat to Oslo and to Gøteborg as well as a route to the Swedish city of Varberg a little to the south of Gøteborg.

    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?
