Here you can immerse yourself in Lønstrups amazing gems and the characteristics that makes up the great destination that is Lønstrup.
Experience two sides of one gem
Lønstrup is buzzing of life and gets visited by many holiday guests. In winter, you can enjoy the peace and silence. The unspoiled and rough nature offers unique nature experiences and allows you to recharge your batteries.
The people of Lønstrup has through generations been getting their supplies from the Western sea. But every year the sea is slowly eating away the dune on which the city lies.
It's harming the city, but also one of our favorite attractions:
The lighthouse Rubjerg Knude is one of Northern Jutland's greatest tourist attractions. It is placed right on the edge of the impressive wandering dune Rubjerg Knude. From top of the lighthouse you will get one of the most amazing views over the North Sea and Vendsyssel. But the lighthouse was in danger of falling into the sea, as the rough nature and autumn storms carried off the dune and the lighthouse moved dangerously close to the edge.
Therefore, in 2019, they chose to try to move the lighthouse further into the dune to preserve it. The task was carried out by a local bricklayer.
Craftspeople in Lønstrup
Within the rough nature which characterizes Lønstrup, arts and crafts can be found. Lønstrup is the town in Denmark with the highest concentration of craftspeople as the nature serves as an inspiration for them. Their open workshops give you the unique possibility to get really close to art.
In the 1970s, the first craftspeople came to the city and contributed in giving Lønstrup attractiveness. Many craftspeople passed their handcraft on to their children and today we experience a mix of generations working together side by side in the open workshops. Many of the craftspeople that learned in Lønstrup decided to stay and to open their own workshop. This contributes to a special community with possibility to cooperate and develop.
