Gjellerodde

Like much else of the landscape out here to the west, the landscape at Gjellerodde bears clear traces of being marked by the ice age - the last ice age to be exact. At that time, most of Denmark was covered by a layer of ice. The ice was melting given climate change.

Southwest of Gjellergaard you see today 40-50 meter high moraine slopes; the result of the ice's last fierce battle against the temperature rises.

At the tip of Gjellerodde you will find the homestead farm Gjellergaard, which has been preserved and is today run as a regional museum, as a representation of the fishing style of the fishing farmers of that time. You can visit the farm and its cozy café every Easter, Pentecost, summer, autumn holidays and for Christmas.
