     Jegindø - Thyholm Jegindø - Thyholm

    At one time, Jegindø was two small , low-lying islands separated by a stretch of water just south of Jegindø Church. This stretch of water is now a low meadow running across the island to the south of the church.

    Until the causeway to Jegindø was built in 1916, the inkeeper af Tambohus Kro was entitled by royal charter to operate a ferry service across Tambosund.

    There are no hill on Jegindø - the highest point of the island is just 13 m above sea level. This fertile island has been inhabitated for thousands of years, and in many places it is still possible to find the remains of Stone Age settlements.

    The fishing has always been good in the very changeable waters around Jegindø, and the people of the island relied as much on fishing as on agriculture for their livelihood.

    By the harbour, which has been extended to include a marina, stands the little museum "Æ Fywerhus", which displays exhibitions about fishing on Jegindø in years gone by.

     Hygum Bakke Hygym Bakke At Hygum Bakke you will find almost 30 protected mounds dating from the Bronze Age. The mounds are visible from a long distance, as they are located on Egbjerg and Hygym Bakke, respectively, which are almost 60 meters high in themselves. Hygum was the name of the local parish and means "the settlement by the hills". The oldest of the burial mounds south of Hygum Bakke functioned as a burial mound, where by lighting bonfires one could warn the population of danger. A milestone from the 18th century at the foot of the hill shows that part of the old country road from Lemvig to Thisted went west of Nissum Bredning before the North Sea broke through Aggertange in 1825. You can see the course on maps from 17th and 18th century maps. The road is probably even older. During World War II, the German Armed Forces also used the area under the name "Höhe 57". The site was heavily fortified with bunkers, minefields and an armored grave. From Hygum Bakke there is a fantastic view of the landscape towards the North Sea, Harboøre Tange and Nissum Bredning.
