Løgstør i båd


Løgstør is also known as the "Town of Mussels" owing to the town’s location right by the sea where this tasty delicacy is found. Boasting a number of old narrow streets, lined with small houses, originally built to house 19th-century fishermen and sailors, this vibrant town is bursting with life and wonderful natural scenery. Take a stroll at the harbor front or along the beach, or you could explore the canal Frederik the VII's Canal, running parallel to the waterfront.
