Bulbjerg

For centuries, chalk blocks were sawed out of the cliff and used as a building material in the surrounding area or burnt to quicklime. Former visitors have carved their names in the limestone, including a 19th century king whose name can still be seen. During World War II, the German occupation force used Bulbjerg as a lookout point and built a small concrete fortification which still exists.

Skarreklit

Skarreklit was a rock column in the sea about 100 metres off Bulbjerg. It fell down in a storm in 1978, but its base can be seen at low tide and calm sea. The base of the column was flint, allowing the column to withstand the forces of the waves, long after the sea had eroded the softer limestone around it. According to a legend, the fall of the column would mean the end of the world. Skarreklit is presumably named after the cormorant (Danish: skarv, Jutlandic dialect: skar); klit means \'dune\', in Jutlandic also \'cliff\'.
