Visit the northernmost fjord in Denmark which stretches from Thisted in Thy, on the west coast to the small town of Hals in the east. In the middle of the fjord you will find the islands of Mors, Egholm, Fur and Livø.

Explore the cozy towns along the Limfjord

In the heart of North Jutland and right by the Limfjord you will find the capital of the region, Aalborg. In this bustling city, you can explore the fantastic waterfront that prides itself with architectonic gems, such as the Utzon Center and the House of Music which harmonise perfectly with the medieval buildings found around Aalborg city centre. The waterfront has over the past years changed from an industrial district to a relaxing oasis with world-class architecture, classical buildings and a cornucopia of cultural and gastronomical experiences for all.

Further along the Limfjord, to the west, you will find the small waterside town of Løgstør, a town full of maritime spirit and local specialities, such as Limfjord Oyster, mussels and shellfish. All along the Limfjord, you will find these gems of cozy towns.
