Fishing has been the cities livelihood for hundreds of years and is still the lifeline of Thyborøn with one of the largest fishing harbours Denmark's, where fish for millions land every year. Plaices wear the royal crown here, even though amost all kinds of fish species get fished by the many vessels that are placed in Thyborøn. The harbour is the heart of the city and the many trading and processing companies make for lively activities, every day, all year round.
Food in a nostalgic setting
In the old red houses by the habour there has been the city's fish auction for decades. In this nostalgic setting you can still buy fresh fish to take home or sit at the pier and enjoy the view over the harbour with a cold beer and a fish burger - or with a glass of white wine and a lemon sole with shrimps or other delicacies. A fishing playground and a lifeguard tower at the beach make this place a favourite destination for families with children. In the restaurants in Thyborøn the dishes are served with great pleasure and in an authentic environment. The quality is in the ingredients. And the guests are coming from far away to eat fish here, because the fish could not be any fresher and that is reflected in the taste.
