Hirtshals Guide

Hirtshals is a town and port located at the top of the Jutland Peninsular in northern Denmark and lies on the coast of the island of Vendsyssel-Thy. The town was developed around a man made harbour that was built between 1919 and 1931 and was connected to the rest of Denmark by a railway line, the Hirtshals-Hjorring line, in 1925. The town's fishing fleet is now one of the largest in Denmark and was facilitated by an expansion of the harbour in 1966, and along with tourism fishing plays an important role in the town's economy.

The town's shops are kept busy by passengers disembarking from ferries docking at the town's harbour. This is especially the case with Norwegian visitors who shop in the town year round. One of the most popular attractions in the town is the Nordsoen Oceanarium which is one of Europe's largest aquariums and contains over 70 different species in its collection.

Ferry services departing from the town's port depart to Bergen, Kristiansand, Stavanger, Langesund, Larvik, Seydisfjordur and Torshavn.
