Bird watching... Yes real Brids!
Rømø is with its marshland a sanctuary to birds and ideal for looking at birds so remember your binoculars.
We did get to see marshharriers, oystercatchers, starlings that can make this phenomenon called black sun if they are enough, we was not that lucky to see this. Skylarks and many more.

Excursion to see the grey seals and crabs
The primary thing for me was to see the seals, watch birds and to observe who live in Nordic sea.
Everyday excursions are organized from Havneby port and tickets can be bought on the ship or at the port. I don't know if timetable changes but I went there at afternoon and it took as more than one hour. If you get lucky you'll be able to see many seals lounging in the sun. Ship goes quite close as to see them and for better viewing you can get binocular on the ship. There are also could be seen wales but we weren't lucky to see them.
And yes for the first time I regret I don't know German language, because the guides spoke only Danish and German. So, nooo English!
After seal tour one goes to crab tour :) There are set nets and after some time you can see a lot of sea stuff moving on the table. As I understood there was told interested stories about all the small sea animals. You could hold crabs, starfishes, oysters and lot of others, many of them were put back in the sea. But don't try to stuff quietly everything in pockets - it won't be good because that stuff will start to smell pretty bad! It's better to take them from the beach where they are dried on the sun.

On our guided tour we were lucky to see 34 seals, two wales which were promised on the beginning were swimming somewhere else. As I wrote in previous tip the ship goes quite close to observe them clearer, you can even take binocular to see the nice faces :)
The smaller ones are looking lighter as they have fluffy white skin later becoming more darker and specific to live in water. Many of them grow more than three meters long and are quite heavy; the guide told that now they are taking much more food to live better in winter. As their specialty I can mention fishes and also sometimes lobsters which can be found in Nordic see.

There are many parking points on the island where one can take some meal, rest or also take the tour into forest. Better to have the islands' map which are provided in tourist office or camping sites, so easier to orientate there. To spend time on the island and waiting for the seal tour, I took one of the trails.
I don't know if there is allowed to gather mushrooms but I saw many of them and took to make later delicious sauce :)
There I found also many berries like blackberries which are very yummy :)
Rømø islands' forests are not typical to them which one can see in Latvia. The trees grow smaller, they are more compact together with bushes, and if you want to take growing mushrooms you need to have good sneaking skills. One can see there many flowers and small insects.
For travelers with dogs there are arranged special places where dog lovers can meet and enjoy their own forest trails.

Kommandørgården (The commodore's house)
Built in 1784, the home gives you a feel for how the relatively well-off lived during that time period. There are rooms filled with ceiling and wall paintings, as well as one room that is covered in Dutch wall tiles.
Sand - Sculpture contest
Some years a contest at the beach is beeing held. Artists from many contries gather to make sculptures of sand.
This church is filled with relics, some of which are over 800 years old. On the outside of the church lined up against the wall there are tombstones of old sailors.
The beach, of course
The sky was filled with kites when I took this photo--room is in abundance on this very large beach.
