At approximately 300 square metres, Ringkøbing Fjord is the largest lake in West Jutland. Locals here think it is also the most beautiful..... The fjord is a shallow lake of brackish water surrounded by tidal meadows, particularly at the Tippen and Værn areas.The Fjord is, and always has been, an important part of life for fish, birds, and humans. Because of this, and in order to ensure that this can continue in the future, large areas around the Fjord are designated nature conservation areas. For many locals, fishing in the Fjord has for generations been a major source of income, and although this is no longer the case, many anglers now enjoy the life in and around the Fjord.
