    You can "conquer" the "mountain" with the help of stairs on two sides. 😉

    Great view from up there. Very nice corner for hiking if you do not want to walk on the beach.
    And great tracks for mountain bikers.

    You have to be careful while hiking. Because the mountain bike route and the trails intersect. And some wheel riders are not ready to slow down

    In the middle of the Blåbjerg Klitplantage, south of the Ringkøbing Fjord between Nymindegab, Nr. Nebel and Henne Strand - 64 m above sea level - is the Blåbjerg ("The Blue Mountain"), one of Denmark's highest dunes. The Blåbjerg was once used as a naval sign, as the dune is clearly visible from the sea. You have an impressive view over much of southwestern Jutland when you are on top of the dune. When the weather is clear you should be able to see 40 church towers.

    There are many dispatched oak trees to be seen around Blåbjerg. At first glance you might think there is old oak undergrowth. In reality, they are the treetops of old oak trees that were blown into the flying sand here. The trunks are completely buried.

    Nice hiking area not on the beach but in the woods.

    Hike over the Filsö lake. Bird sanctuary. At the other end beautiful view of the left lake with information boards in the wooden house.

    The blue mountain, Blåbjerg, after which the plantation is named, is the highest dune in Denmark with a height of 64 m above sea level. Only the upper part consists of drifting sand, which lies on a hill. In the past, the dune functioned as a nautical mark, as it could be clearly seen from the sea. The mountain gets its name because from a distance it resembles a distant blue mountain. The locals often refer to the dunes as mountains "æ bjerre". When the weather is clear, the mountain offers a view of large parts of southwest Jutland. 40 church towers can be seen from the viewpoint.
    To the southeast you look over Lake Filsø, which was once the largest lake in the country. The church of Henne from around 1200 and the even older former Hennegård manor stand in the same direction. To the southwest lies Henne Strand and to the north you can see the town of Ringkøbing on the other side of the fjord.
    The stone atop Blåbjerg dune was erected in 1908 to commemorate Chamberlain Thyge de Thygeson, who was head of the dune protection authority from 1861 to 1899. During this period, large parts of the dune plantations in West and North Jutland were created. The stone was fetched from Bornholm, transported by ship to Esbjerg and from there brought to its present location in a horse-drawn carriage.
