The local Area
Løkken is known and loved for its clean wide beaches with its characteristic small white beach cabins along the dunes. In this area close to town the beach is free of cars so everybody can play in the splendid sand without worrying about traffic. Løkken has activities and attractions for all ages.
Løkken is the ideal destination when you need a break from everyday life - and it's up to you whether your trip should be spent on relaxation, discovery or an adrenaline rush!
The old fishing boats still go out every morning so it is possible to buy fresh fish directly from the fish market when they return. It is a great moment to be on the beach when the boats are pulled back up on the beach and the catch is brought in. Get an overview of when the boats comes in here.
Tip: After a storm, you might be lucky to find amber amongst the seaweed that has been washed up on the beach - a favourite activity among the kids.
The beach is not the only attraction in the area! We recommend a drive or a bike ride to Nørre Lyngby or Rubjerg Knude where you have the most spectacular view of the ocean “Vesterhavet”. You can also visit the village of Lønstrup known for its many small workshops producing jewellery and pottery as well as for Märup Kirke (church) that is falling into the ocean. Only a few kilometres north of Løkken is the famous Børglum Kloster (monastery) and on top of the hill at the old windmill, you have a spectacular view of Løkken city.
Leave all the worries at home, as you take good care of your body and soul. On the way down to the pier, you find saunas and wilderness hot-tubs. The saunas and the hot-tubs are owned and managed by Contact them if you wish to book the facilities. It is always a good idea to contact them first, outside the high season, since the wilderness bath-tub is rentable.
These are only a few of the things to see and do in the local area. For more inspiration, you can visit: www.toppenafdanmark.com or ask us upon arrival.
