  • Kernholz

    The renatured Filsø is easy to hike around and cycle around. Since one drives almost directly through the lake is a terrific nature experience, so to speak, pre-programmed.

    When approaching the new Zuwegung note, this is not considered in the map work. The turn is approx. 250 meters sooner. Furthermore, the Filsø dam has not been freely accessible since 1 August 2017 due to construction work. How long is not there.

    In the restoration area Filsø many different and also rare bird species are at home. At the large lake of the bird sanctuary / nature reserve there is a lot of nice place for a little break.

    In the renaturation area Filsø, especially birds are at home. The big lake is the heart of the bird sanctuary and a nice place for a little break.

    Great scenery, lots of peace, the trails are sometimes quite stony or sandy. Therefore, for example, difficult for children to drive difficult.

    Often read that the lake is called a small lake, but Lake Filsø is anything but small.
    Just a few kilometers behind the dunes of Henne Strand, the re-established lake Filsø glistens, rightly called "the botanical wonder".
    Previously drained and farmed, the lake was renatured in 2012. Filsø is the second largest lake in Jutland with more than 50 plant species, as well as fish, otters and rare birds of all sizes. Filsø is a nature experience for the whole family.

    Great is there the jetty, which brings one to an observation hut! There are even free binoculars. Unfortunately, I was there for the last time about 4 years ago. On the next tour on Filsø, I'll take a look at the Elipse that was built there.

    Lake Filsø was once one of the largest lakes in Denmark with an area of approx. 3,600 hectares. Over the centuries man has shaped the lake. In the Middle Ages, as early as 1140, the first water mill was built by the Henne Mølleå stream. The watermills were a new way of using the forces of nature and at the same time led to the size of the lake being regulated with a dam.From the end of the 18th century, the possibilities of land reclamation were reconsidered by partially draining the lake and in 1852 the new owners of Lake Filsø removed the dam at the Henne Mølle mill, increasing the area of the lake from approx. 2,100 ha to approx. 750 ha has been reduced in size. This heralded the reclamation of land in Filsø. Not quite 100 years later, the drainage of the lakes Mellemsø and Søndersø was dealt with again, and in 1951 another 750 hectares of the lake were converted into soil for agricultural use. After that only a fraction of the original lake was left, Fidde Sø in the northeast corner of the old lake.In 2010 the Aage V. Jensen Naturfond bought Filsø. Out of a total of 2,300 hectares, a lake of 915 hectares was recreated. Together with Fidde Sø and Søvigsund, the new lake area is 1,030 ha. Today Filsø consists of three lakes: Mellemsø, Søndersø and Fidde Sø.naturparkvesterhavet.dk/de/naturpark-vesterhavet/erlebnisse/der-see-filsoe

    Appearances are deceptive. The dune area below Henne was once contaminated by a drug scandal. There are still effects today. The small warning signs on the beach are barely visible. For many years, attempts have been made to restore the area. The efforts of the Danes can be seen here.
