    the ocean

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Along the coast near Bovbjerg the landscape was formed during the last Ice Age and has been exposed to the action of the sea and the wind forming cliffs up to 40 meters high. In Ferring, on the cliff top at Bovbjerg, one can find Jens S?ndergaards Museum. Bovbjerg lighthouse is built on the highest point..

    The light and the atmospherehave been prized by many artists who both in the past and also today are inspired by the district around Bovbjerg and Fjaltring.

    A contrast to the high cliffs, hills and dales, Klosterheden State Forest lies south of Lemvig. The Forest Authority here manages one of Denmark?s largest forests, which embraces about 7.400 hectares.

    There is a rich fauna including herds of red deer and Denmarks only colony of beavers (may be seen occasionally at the "M?lles?en", picture right)

    One of the highest points in the area is by the road between Lemvig and Nr. Nissum with a view over the Limfjord to Thy and Salling.

    the harbour

    The bay at Lemvig forms a natural harbour giving lee from many directions. Up until 1851 ships anchored up some distance from the shore and the cargo was brought by barge to and from the ships. In 1851 the first jetty was built and the harbour trade began to expand. At one point the merchants of Lemvig had a fleet of 10-12 ships engaged in overseas trade. In the years around the first world war the fishery harbour had one of the largest turnovers in Denmark. Today there are only a few fishing boats based in Lemvig, all fishing in the North Sea. In addition to these, there are some smaller fishing boats which fish the Limfjord.

    Motor- and sailboats use the harbour in Lemvig and the marina at Vinkelhage. On Mathilde?s quay there is a new building housing facilities for sailors and a restaurant.

    In the summer months one can take a trip on the fjord and out to sea on the old sailing boat "Mira".
