Salt Days in Thyborøn

At Easter, 1 out of 100 experiences moves once again to Thyborøn and repeats last year's great success "Salt Å Thyborønsk".

On Wednesday, April 5, we repeat last year's success "Salt å thyborønsk" and transform the old fishing hall at the harbor in Thyborøn into a salt mecca. Here, salt is the focal point of the festival and all the activities. It is not at all a coincidence that salt plays the main role these days. Salt has a great significance and a special history in Thyborøn. You can learn more about this history when you visit the salt festival these days.

On this day, Thyborøn Harbour will be transformed into a cultural mecca for food, flavors, art and activities for children and adults, all of which involve the use of salt with a focus on Thyborøn.
