One of the biggest gun positions in the Atlantic Wall during World War II was meant to be placed at Blåvand. It was never finished, though, as the war came to an end before the construction was complete. Through two decades this ruined bunker was a popular museum, but from the summer 2017 it is replaced by a brand new museum, containing four large sections with separate exhibitions. The roof on the new museum is planted with lyme grass and the whole building is camouflaged as part of the landscape, with the bearing parts of the construction hidden under the sand.
Take the ferry to Fanø from the Port of Esbjerg. Fanø offers wide sandy beaches and great experiences in nature. Here you can experience kite flying, seals, oysters, kite buggy and more. At Fanø you will find plenty of culture at small galleries or museums - and of course you should enjoy a beer at Fanø Bryghus.
