Tips

  • Peter D

    The port is very beautiful. But unfortunately the water sometimes rises higher. You need protection there.

    The new flood protection in the port of Lemvig "Le Mur" was inaugurated on December 16, 2012. "Le Mur" is an abbreviation of "Lemvig" and "mur", the Danish word for wall. At the same time, the name draws attention to the wall's function of providing protection. Le Mur protects the port and the city in the hinterland against flooding at high tide up to a height of 2.10 m above sea level in the central part of the port and up to a height of 2.45 m in the east port. Before Le Mur there was a wooden flood defense from 2000, but it was worn out and only protected against floods up to a height of 1.74 m at the lowest point. After several extreme flood situations in the first decade of this century, including the January storm in 2005 with floods of up to 1.84 m, it gradually became clear that a new,
    higher and more durable solution is required.
    Le Mur stretches across the central port square, opening up a space for parking and recreational development. In addition, the wall was equipped with tables and benches. At the fish shop, it becomes a ramp into the shop and a platform for the historic mountain railway. The ceramic mosaic decorations on the wall were made by fine art classes from Lemvig Municipality's elementary schools. There are openings in the wall at the alleys leading to the city's pedestrian zone, which ensures the view between the port and the city under normal conditions. In the event of extreme flood warnings, the openings are closed manually by gates hanging from the wall. Any waves crashing over the wall are handled by pumps.
