Idyll at the landing area
At Stenbjerg landing area is a group of characteristic, white tool sheds from the time when coastal fishing was at its peak. Fishermen pulled their boats on land using a winch, and their catch was prepared inside the tool sheds before it was sold. Coastal fishing was a risky profession and the fishermen were highly exposed to the forces of nature. Therefore, in the early 1970s they moved their fishing activities from Stenbjerg to the harbour of Hanstholm. Today the boats are smaller and can be handled with tractors.
The tool sheds have been preserved thanks to local efforts, and the landing area still has an authentic atmosphere. Many people are attracted to the picturesque tool sheds and the violent waves which are in sharp contrast to each other. On a warm summer day, you can swim at Stenbjerg, and a walk along the coast is always popular. One of the sheds has been made into a small, visitors centre for Thy National Park.
