Monument over dead sailors
Dødemandsbjergene is a large monument, erected by the Danish reporters in memory of the 1391 English marines, who at Christmas 1811 drowned in the sea by Thorsminde, when two English man-of-wars Sct. George and Defence founded in the breakers.
The monument is situated approx. 800 m south of Thorsminde. The dunes themselves, which are called Dødemandsbjergene (dead men's dunes), are located on the opposite side of the road.
