Crane Dance and Red Deer Roaring

The old Boathouse at Hanstholm Lighthouse serves as the setting for the National Park Thy's newest exhibition and picnic house - like a stepping stone to nature. In the Boathouse, both young and old visitors can explore and play their way to new knowledge about Hanstholm Wildlife Reserve, red deer, crane dances, bryozoan limestone, rare plants, and Denmark's last mounted (and armed) sheriff!

From the unmanned exhibition, there is a wonderful trip out to the Queen's Trail with a view over the wildlife reserve. The trip is wheelchair-friendly.
