Hanstholm Fish Auction

Do not miss the opportunity to witness a real fish auction

Set your alarm clock for an early wakeup call, if you want to see the many fish at auction before they are shipped of to purchasers all over Europe.

Guided tours in English are available Thursdays on 14/7, 21/7, 28/7, 4/8, 11/8, 18/8 and 25/8.
Tours on Tuesdays are only guided in Danish.

In Hanstholm, this summer you have the chance to enter the engine room at Hanstholm Fish Auction, where you can experience how a real fish auction takes place here on Jutland's west coast.

If you are an early bird, you can join a local guide on an exciting tour of Hansholm Port, which is Denmark's leading in consumer fishing. The tour begins at the auction center, where we can watch the morning auction in action. After, the tour continues to selected places and companies at the port.

This guided tour is a unique view into what goes on at a Danish port. You will meet a local guide, who knows the ins and outs of the port and the fishing here.

Tours in English in the summer of 2022

Every Thursday in week 28-34 the tour will also be guided in English. Every Tuesday in the same weeks the tour is only guided in Danish.

There is a limited number of tickets per tour, due to the number of headsets available for the participants. We recommend the headsets to be able to hear the guide despite noise at the busy port. You can book your ticket right here in our tour calendar.
