Hurup - Trolls, art and local trade in a class of their own.
If you say Hurup Thy, many will think of merchant of JYSK bedding storage Lars Larsen's birthplace.
Hurup is also home to father and son - Bjørn and Johnny Hansen - known from Dansktoppen.
They have suddenly got competition from the troll Ask of Ashøj, who last year moved into Ashøj Plantage - a place throw from Hurup. Ash from Ashøj is the artist Thomas Dambo's biggest troll in Denmark to date, and was built by local, volunteer forces from Thy and built from recycled materials from a local stair manufacturer and stones from the harbor construction in Hanstholm.
It is also in Hurup at Hilding Anders that many of the beds the Danes sleep in are made. Just as Idealcombi produces windows for the whole world and the haulier N. C. Christensen & Sønner makes sure that Bakkedal comes out to all the country's shops.
Hurup is located in Sydthy. To the south, Sydthy is bounded by Draget, to the north, the boundary is more blurred. To the west - 12 kilometers away - the North Sea forms a natural border, just as the Limfjord does to the east. Sydthy is characterized by magnificent nature in a, for the area, very hilly terrain. Bathing beaches are found in several places along the North Sea and along the Fjord. Sydthy is a favorite tourist destination for those who seek the true nature and warm-hearted people.
