Hirtshals is a maritime centre and features one of the largest industrial harbours in Denmark along with a fascinating coastal town centre, a lovely beach, and a nice pedestrian zone. The history behind the local fishing activities, including how the sea has made up the lifeblood of this town for the last hundreds of years, unfolds when you walk through town and visit the harbour. The distance from the cutter to the table is very short at the eateries in Hirtshals and very often, the fish are taken directly from the fish auction to the shops and restaurants. You can also find a selection of nice places to stay in this town. From Hirtshals, you can follow panoramic route 414 or 415.
