In September 2014 on my route up to norway I stayed for two nights in a nice bed&breakfast house at Aalborg. The day between and with good weather on my side it is time for a circle tour, mainly visiting the northern end western shores of Jutland. Here are some impressions.
The tour starts at ten in the mornig after a good breakfast and some small talk with the house-owner. He is swedish, speaks fluent english and also german. Later, programming the navi less or more precisly, it will show me the right way coming out of Aalborg.
More impressions from slettestrand?
Feel free to give 'em a mouseclick ..
The next stop takes place at Bulbjerg-museum. My bed&breakfast-host gave me the information, that there are still parts of a german military-installation to be seen, used in world-war II to control the Skagerrak Strait. No weapons, no radar-facilities are there, only some into a small hill digged rooms and corridors build on massiv ferro-concrete for protection.
Leaving Bulbjerg and going west, the next target will be Hanstholm. On this landmark (this edge) the Skagerrak Strait meets the North Sea. When it comes to more touristic aspects Hanstholm isn't very impressive. It stands for professional fishing an processing that draught in an industrial way.
The way leads me south now, mostly not far from the shoreline and some stops -to get an overview- are included. Then passing Klitmöller, where sometimes windsurfing events take place. Now on early afternoon the Thy-Nationalpark seems the right place for a lazy picknic. Not directly on the shore, because the wind ist too strong there. Finding a place in the coastline-forrest, right under some trees to protect me from the wind, that couldn't be too difficult. Here we go...
About twenty kilometers south of the nice picnic-area there ist a ferryboat to use, crossing the Thyboron-Kanal. Please zoom out inside that link and you will have an overview, getting the full picture where to be and where to go.
It is a small roll on/roll off ferry and it goes every 30 minutes. Here is, what to expect ...
As to be seen on the left picture the sun will slightly go down and it is time now running straight forward to Aalborg. Setting up the navi again it told me, there are about 180 km to drive and this will last two and a half hour.
Let's do it.
At 18:26 after being eight and a half hour on tour, so my temporarily homeplace is reached again and there will be some time, to go downtown Aalborg, finding a restaurant or at least McD, getting a burger to overcome the small but substantiell hunger. Sleeping well and thinking about the next day, when my reserved ferry -of course, a bigger one then today- will shuttle me from Hirtshals to Kristiansand in norway.
Will be continued ... und endlich geht es weiter im Text: Bitte hier entlang ...
