Ringkøbing Fjord

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 has always been the base of life for birds, fish and humans – and still includes some of Denmark’s most important bird spots. Large parts of the areas around the fjord are therefore under conservation. For centuries, fishing in the fjord has been a source of life for many families, but it no longer is. However, many sport anglers come to fish in the beautiful nature that surrounds the fjord.
