Gudhjem Noerresand Harbour

Gudhjem Noerresand Harbour

Nørresand – the westernmost harbour at Gudhjem – has plenty of room for visitors. Most berths are somewhat turbulent during strong north-westerly winds. Nørresand is a popular bathing site for local residents of Gudhjem, and in 2016 a new café opened in a former smokehouse just west of the harbour.

Gudhjem affords splendid walks and rambles, including through the town, up and down well-kept stepped paths with a pervasive Mediterranean atmosphere, or along the old coastal rescue paths to the east and west of the harbour.

“Sun Above Gudhjem” is the name of a huge chefs’ competition held in Gudhjem every year, but also the name of a dish you must enjoy: smoked herring on a slice of rye bread, with onions, egg and radishes (perhaps named after the fact that it is possible to see the sun rise up from and set on the sea in Gudhjem around Midsummer’s Eve).
