The White Beach Huts on the West Coast

The Blue Ice-cream Kiosk

The Blue Ice-cream kiosk (Det Blå Ishus), is quite possibly Tversted's largest attraction. Each year from springtime, people flock to the small ice-cream shop by Tversted beach, for one of the best ice-creams in Denmark.

Amber - the tears of Gods

In Denmark, there is a saying that 'a dear child has many names'. Searching for “Denmark's Gold” - "The tears of Gods" (and many more names) among the breakers is a unique experience. We are, of course, referring to amber, which is 30–50 million-year-old fir tree resin.
