Denmark’s only combined church tower and lighthouse

Don’t miss the island’s most beautiful view from Tunø Church’s unique tower, which as the only one in Denmark is also a lighthouse. At the top, you can sense why some people compare it to Olafur Eliasson’s rainbow at Aros in Aarhus. Here you also get a spectacular view in many colours. In fact, in clear weather you can see all the way to the Great Belt Bridge.

The world’s oldest offshore wind farm

From the west side of the island you have a view of a dozen 63-metre high wind turbines that make up Tunø Knob, the world’s oldest offshore wind farm. As they sit on the horizon, the turbines mark a great milestone for Danish wind energy when they were built by the wind turbine giant Vestas in 1995, and are not least a special sight for anyone with an interest in sustainable energy sources.

Recharge your batteries on a milk table

On your walk through the town you will notice several milk tables on the side of the road. The tables are a relic from the time when farm owners supplied fresh milk in cans. Here the milk cans were picked up in a horse-drawn carriage and taken to the island’s old dairy, which today houses the seaside hotel Mejeriet Tunø. Today, the tables are frequently used for a rest by passers-by on a hike, but as can be seen in the photo, one of the milk cans is still standing in front of Stenhuset - built in 1894. 


Get the ultimate island experience at a seaside hotel

If you really want to feel the very special atmosphere on your own body, then a stay at Mejeriet Tunø is recommended. The beautiful light rooms, the silence and the proximity to the beach, harbour and the island’s experiences are the perfect combination that ensures that you completely relax.

The obstacle course is also for adults

On the large playground by the harbour, children can take up the challenge and try their hand at the obstacle course. The course is also really good and challenging for adults, we should say. Nearby is another fun activity for both big and small - catching crabs.
