National Park Thys first manned information house is located at Stenbjerg Landingsplads. The landing site has been the starting point for coastal fishing for centuries. The picturesque tool houses were built by the fishermen in the early 20th century. Commercial fishing ceased in 1972. The unique cultural environment has been preserved thanks to the Association for the Preservation of Stenbjerg Landingsplads, which also undertook an extensive restoration of the houses in 2000. The association has also made it possible for Nationalpark Thy to set up a visitor center in one of the houses.

In the information house you can learn more about the area's special nature: the beach, the dunes, the dune plantations as well as some of the plants and animals that live in National Park Thy. Here you have the opportunity to ask questions, get good tips, find out what's going on in the national park and much more. A visit here will be a good starting point for further exploration of the national park.

The information house is built in a sustainable architecture in harmony with the raw surroundings. Here is room for contemplation or a much-needed break far away from it all.

You can also find free leaflets in the house. A visit here will be a good starting point for further exploration of the national park.
