Hanstholm offers an interesting history.

Go on an unique cycling tour around Hanstholm - the city where you can find a lot of tracks from World War II. Take your own bicycle or rent a bike from La Ola next to the museum.

With the map in your hands or on your phone, you can choose your own route around Hanstholm and the narrative gets unfolded on the homepage of the bunker museum, which contains pictures and stories, that increase your knowledge of the city's history.

Combine the tour with a visit at the bunker museum or let the bicycle tour be the cultural element of the holiday.
