The municipality has plenty to offer, ranging all the way from some of Denmark’s most attractive and broadest beaches to the country’s oldest market town.
In 1243, Tønder became the first town in Denmark to be granted the rights of a royal borough. The merchants earned a lot of money and their wealth enabled them to build beautiful houses. Some of these houses are still standing, with Drøhses Hus from 1672 being one of the best preserved. The house hosts a variety of exhibitions, with the primary focus being on bobbin lace items and textiles.
