The gateway to the East Jutland Archipelago
All year round, a stream of people flock to Hou and hop on one of the daily ferry departures to the islands of Samsø or Tunø. Many do so without knowing the cosy atmosphere that literally awaits right around the pier by the marina and the old fishing village.
Behind the old historic shipyard is the large marina with a perfect setting for pleasure sailors. The harbour is not just for sailors, but for everyone. It is nice to walk along the quayside, where you feel the maritime atmosphere.
Around the harbour quay is an ice cream parlour/café, while you will also find a convenience store and one of the region’s best butcher shop.
