Kid friendly

By 2020, this will be the 5th time we are hosting our food event. We bring together interest organizations, area stakeholders and marsh food producers. During the day, local food producers showcase their specialty products, both with sales and tastings. There will be various free activities, all with food in focus.

At the far west is the flat marsh landscape and the Wadden Sea.

Here are vast expanses and a horizon so endless that one can feel quite small on the edge of the sea. The Wadden Sea is, at one moment, a dry bottom, as far as the eye can see, and a few hours later completely flooded by the sea.

The Vidåslus and the Forested Dike protect the entire 12,000 hectares of Tønder marshland and 15,000 inhabitants from flooding from the Wadden Sea.

Højer old locks

The old sluice in Höjer, west of Tønder, was built at the same time as the Höjer-Siltoft dike in 1861. Previously, the ships were able to sail freely into the Höjer Canal. With an open lock in the dike, ships with mast could sail into the port of Höjer, which was built within the dike.

Vidå lock

The new lock of Højer was completed in 1981. It consists of three concrete chambers with two wooden sluice gates each. There is a car park and a restaurant close to the lock

Boat people at Vidåen

A time frame from around 1900. From the turn of the century until 1920, there were more than 100 fishermen employed at Rudbøl lake and along Vidåen. Today there are only 15 left. One of the most visible memories from the first time is the old fishing house, built approx. 1870. With this house as its center, in the early 1990s, it succeeded in restoring this ancient environment, in order to show visitors how a small group of citizens lived, worked and worked over 100 years ago. Use the parking space at Höjers Sluse. From here you can walk on the footpath over the dike to the exhibition.

The nature center Tønnisgård is located in an old thatched Kommandergården, which oozes culture and nature.

Here you can visit the new exhibition about the nature between the Wadden Sea and the North Sea.

All year round we offer many different fun and exciting tours / activities for children and adults of all ages - from shrimp fishing on the beach to eastern walks in the Wadden Sea.

At the center you can sign up and buy tickets for all activities.

Arrild Holiday town is a good starting point for an active holiday for the whole family.

Take a vacation in central Jutland and be independent of weather and wind.

With its central location only 30 km from the East Coast, the West Coast and to the border, Central Jutland is a natural starting point for your holiday.

The beautiful nature is indescribable and includes meadow, marsh, lakes, creeks and forest.

At the holiday center, you have the most magnificent scenery right in front of your nose. The unique fauna of the Wadden Sea, the huge beach and the protected dunes. But sometimes there just needs more, and of course, we are ready in the holiday center of Denmark.

Here you can choose between 3 sizes of holiday homes, all of which are cozy and furnished with everything you need. In addition, we offer football and tennis, an activity room, table tennis, billiards and a swimming pool with children's pool. The best starting point for a wonderful family holiday on the island.

Some of the apartments have had district heating installed, so in these heating costs will be settled separately and not through the electricity bill.



Being a vacation rental agent means that we make sure to establish contact between the holiday homeowners with whom we have an agreement and interested tenants for the holiday home in question. In other words, we do not own any of the holiday homes.

Our expertise, therefore, does not lie in building or buying properties, but in renting them out to interested holiday homeowners for interested holidaymakers.
