Attractions and experiences
The area around Arrild Ferieby Camping is rich in attractions and experiences. Here are just a small sample.
The Mandø Bus
The Mandø Bus is a specially designed tractor bus, which transports tourists/residents to and from the island Mandø in the Wadden Sea.
The times of departure of the bus depend on the tides – at normal high tide there is 1.75 m of water across the Ebbevejen (Low Tide Road) – and in the summer period it departs 1-2 times a day (in the winter time according to agreement). Departure from the parking lot west of Vester Vedsted at Vadehavscentret. The crossing takes approx. 40 minutes.
Go 1000 years back in time to the period when the Vikings ruled in Ribe! In Ribe VikingeCenter you can meet the Vikings, who live and work in reconstructed and authentic environments from Ribe, the oldest town of Scandinavia. No glass is inserted between yourself and the many experiences. You are invited to experience the story about the Vikings when participating with all your senses in the activities and events.
Experience Denmark’s wildest nature phenomenon, when the biggest starling flocks of the country “dance” above the marshlands and in Wadden Sea National Park. Black Sun can be experienced each spring and autumn, when the starlings gather to an eating party of insect larvae, before they continue their migratory flight further on. Thus, they will be able to cope with the demanding breeding period. Black Sun cannot be described with words – it must be experienced, at least once in a life time. Sort Safari® assures big nature experiences, close to the great starling flocks which move around in the area all the time.
Schackenborg – Møgeltønder
Møgeltønder is one of the oldest towns in the country, and therefore it plays a very special part in the history of Denmark. In Møgeltønder you will find the well-known Schakenborg Castle, where Prince Joachim used to live. This of course was of great importance for the town, which is always well worth visiting.
The German border
With only 20 km from Arrild to the German border, a shopping tour on the other side of the border to buy goods, which quench your thirst and suit your sweet tooth, is an obvious idea. Do not forget your passport.
Experience Denmark’s most beautiful beach. The beach on Rømø is among Europe’s widest beaches with lots of space and open widths. Rømø has 13 km of fabulous sand beach, which can be up to 4 km wide according to the tidal water. The wide beach on Rømø has room for everybody – and not the least for ball games, kite flying and long walks.
The town of Ribe
Visit Denmark’s oldest town Ribe, which has a long, fantastic and dramatic history.
Ribe offers a totally unique atmosphere. In only a few places in the country you can find such a well-kept mediaeval town centre with cobbled streets, old half-timbered houses and a magnificent cathedral at the centre.
