A trip on the dune heath
Creeping willow, heather, crowberry, cranberry and bog bilberry, bog myrtle, bell heather, mouse-ear hawkweed and several species of sundew grow on the dune heaths. On the outer dunes, the hardy galea grows, and with its huge root system, it is particularly good at securing and binding the dunes.
North of Lodbjerg Lighthouse lie two beautiful groups of grave mounds, totalling nine altogether. Pollen analyses from excavations show that this area was covered by forest in the Stone Age. The forest included lime trees, oak trees and hornbeam. Later the analyses include more and more pollen from heather, which tells us that the first peasants in the area cleared the forest to cultivate the land, and after a short period of cultivation the heather took over the area.
There is access to the lighthouse every day from 7am-9pm.
