Danhostel Fjaltring

Welcome to Fjaltring. DANHOSTEL Fjaltring Vandrerhjem is the smallest in Denmark. The hostel was built in 2000 using sound natural materials. The hostel is found on the outskirts of Fjaltring facing open fields and an extensive view of the North Sea. Here the coastline is different from the rest of the west coast because there is fertile agricultural land right to edge of the coast. However, there are also stretches of sand dunes within walking distance of the youth hostel. Naturally the landscape has been influenced by the North Sea and the west wind as well as by the fact it lies on the 16000 year old ice front line. Just here the landscape changes from flat plains to hilly moraine land. 6 kilometres to the north lies Bovbjerg. 10 kilometres to the south there is the exciting fishing town of Thorsminde and 17 kilometres from there is the charming town of Lemvig by the Limfjord, which many Danes know from the comic strip “Life in Lidenlund” (“Livets gang i Lidenlund). The beach opposite Fjaltring is the most popular on this stretch of the west coast as a result of its child-friendly bathing conditions. Fjaltring is known for its active association life and many cultural activities. There are many fine art exhibitions, concerts and lectures etc. at Tuskær Cultural Centre all year round. There are also regular exhibitions at Galleri Tukak while there are all sorts of events at Fjaltring Friskole regularly. There is no shop at the hostel but the local grocer’s shop is right beside it. The hostel was built on the initiative of the local residents and is the only one in the country operated by a Society Executive Committee and a host of volunteers.
