Løkken is the epitome of a North Jutland beach town on the west coast. Here, one of Denmark’s very best beaches is at your disposal. Be prepared for fresh fish, large sandy beach areas and unsettled weather conditions. The town invites to a stroll through its charming streets lined with small yellow-washed houses, cafés, restaurants and shops – you will be accompanied by the constant roar of the waves and, the salty smell of the sea with sand stealing round corners, depositing round café chairs and tables. For a town can hardly be any closer to the beach than Løkken. The North Sea, Løkken beach with its classic beach huts, the white dunes and the charming urban life are all elements that make visitors return, year after year. For Løkken has it all: shopping, active holiday, fine dining, art and culture, child-friendly beaches and atmosphere all year round.
Løkken Beach has to be experienced, regardless whether you come for the bathing or not. The 500 iconic beach huts bear witness to Denmark’s historical bathing culture; and it goes without saying that this beach, boasting the finest white sand, has been awarded Blue Flag status. Have an ice cream on the jetty while enjoying the fabulous sunsets by the North Sea. If you take a stroll along the beach, the World War II bunkers will conjure up a sense of history. Løkken also houses a number of small galleries; and leaving the central part of the town, you will enter the old part of the town with its yellow fishermen’s huts still lining the meandering streets.
A little further to the north of Løkken, at Rubjerg Knude, there is more history and beautiful scenery to be experienced. The old, and absolutely unique lighthouse Rubjerg Knude Fyr, is still there. Alas, it is doomed to disappear into the sea before long, so seize the chance to experience this very special attraction while you can.
All year round, there is a multitude of events and activities to be experienced in Løkken. Thus, the annual Løkken Koncert means streets filled with music and gaiety.
More centrally located, and right in the midst of the Løkken town life, you find Café Frandsen and the restaurant at the seaside hotel, Løkken Badehotel. Both provide a fabulously charming atmosphere and, above all, they serve delicious fish courses.
If you are interested in local brew, you should pay a visit to Løkken Bryghus; and if you are inclined to atmosphere and music, then one of Løkken’s oldest restaurants, Peter Bådsmand, is also worth a visit.
TIP: In Løkken it is possible to buy freshly caught fish straight off the cutters. Get an overview of when the boats come in.
Løkken Badehotel is the place for you who prefer a central location. This hotel is right in the midst of it all. There are lots of alternatives, though – camping being one of them.
