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, so be prepared for delighting your tastebuds with fresh fish, relaxing on large, sandy beaches, and experiencing a culture that is balm for the soul.
The town of Løkken invites to a stroll through charming streets lined with small, yellow-washed houses, cafés, restaurants and shops – you will be accompanied by the soothing murmur of the waves, the salty smell of the sea and sand that has snuck its way into the town from the beach - because a town can hardly be any closer to the beach than Løkken. Løkken beach with its classic beach huts, the white dunes and the charming urban life make visitors return, year after year, and that is not all, because they have found out the secret of what Løkken is like; a place that had it all: shopping, active experiences, fine dining, art and culture and child-friendly beaches.
Løkken Beach is a place that has to be experienced, regardless of whether you come for the swimming opportunity or not. The 500 iconic beach huts on the beach 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.
Blokhus – once a fishing village – is now the center of a charming international holiday paradise with good sea food restaurants and cozy shops.
