The Houvig Fortress

The wind blows - as it almost always does in West Jutland. Both now, and back then during the Second World War, when Denmark was occupied and the Nazi occupying power built on their Atlantic violence.

The Atlantic campaign would stretch from the Franco-Spanish border to northern Norway, while keeping the Allies out of mainland Europe. The Atlantic Wall was a show of force to tell the world how strong the Third Reich was. Very symbolically, it was never completed. 

The Houvig Fortress at Søndervig was part of the Atlantic Wall, and when you walk around the many bunkers, you see a village. A village that was ready for attack!
This was also where Ringelnatter was located. The Luftwaffe, the German Air Force's, state-of-the-art anti-aircraft position that shot down several Allied aircraft during the war.

When Ringkøbing-Skjern Museum goes on a bunker tour at Houvig Fortress, we walk through the area where the fortress was located. Many of the bunkers are still visible, while others are more or less hidden in the dunes.

Participation costs DKK 99 for adults and DKK 49 for children 3-17 years. Children under 3 years old attend for free.
