Experience the natural phenomenon black sun, the Wadden Sea National Park and our common world heritage from its most generous side. Our experienced nature guides will take you out to the reed forests in the evening, where you will experience how the starlings gather in flocks of hundreds of thousands and dance in the sky before they calm down in the reeds. Experiencing and hearing about the phenomenon of black sun is an experience you will never forget!
Tøndermarsken is Denmark's largest marsh area. The marsh is a distinctive landscape created by the sea and shaped by man. In Tøndermarsken's towns and landscape, you can experience a historic building culture surrounded by magnificent nature, which in spring and autumn is the center of millions of migratory birds.
Hills are located on a hill island at the edge of the marsh behind the outer dikes. From here you can look out into the humid low-lying marsh to the south and west. The town originated in the Middle Ages and served early as a port of call for merchant ships and oyster boats. Hills are rich in architectural heritage, and the city center contains one of the country's highest concentrations of listed and worthy of preservation buildings.
Højergård is a newly restored classic marsh farm in the middle of Højer. The farm is built in West Schleswig building style and built as a longhouse. The building has previously been part of a larger courtyard and was for a period four-story. Today, Højergård consists of the farmhouse from 1823, an older barn from the 18th century, a villa from 1906 and a new one from 2019.
