Ertebølle, situated in Vesthimmerland, is a charming village rich in history and scenic areas for the whole family.

In the natural area along the cliffs towards Limfjorden, the last hunters and gatherers of the Stone Age lived. Today, Ertebølle is a small village, but the name Ertebølle is known because the village gave its name to an exciting period in Danish history - the Ertebølle Culture.

On the flat land, which is ancient seabed 1 km south of the cliffs, lies the Ertebølle Kitchen Midden. In the 1890s, the National Museum excavated a huge pile of oyster and mussel shells at the site and discovered that it was man-made, and people had literally lived on top of the heap.

At the Ertebølle Stone Age Center, the story of the Ertebølle people is told, the last nature-living people who lived exactly here 7,000 years ago. Immerse yourself in the Stone Age in the 25,000 square meters large outdoor experience landscape and experience the Stone Age with all senses in the various workshops. Follow in the footsteps of the Stone Age people and try your hand at hunting, sailing, flint knapping, and especially daily life in the Stone Age. There are plenty of fun and challenging activities for the whole family here.

Ertebølle Hoved is a 20-meter-high cliff located just south of Ertebølle facing Løgstør Bredning. The cliff is about 500 meters long and contains folded layers of moler with volcanic ash layers from the Tertiary. Moler is found only in the western part of the Limfjord worldwide. The distinctive cliffs, dating back 55 million years, can be seen, among other places, at Ertebølle. The cliffs, along with moler cliffs in Hanklit, Silstrup, and Fur, have been designated as a special cultural and natural heritage, nominated for inclusion on the World Heritage List. During a walk along the coast, there are ample opportunities to find fossils.
