Morsø Yacht Club & Marina
Mors is an island of outstanding natural beauty in the western part of the Limfjord in the north of Denmark. The area is world-famous for its Morsø wood-burning stoves and its special kind of clayMo-Clay or Moler a word deriving from the Danish word for clay, ”ler”.
Morsø Yacht Club & Marina is located on the eastern side with a view to the island Fur. The harbour was constructed in 1788 and today functions as both an industrial harbour and a marina. The town of Nykøbing Mors is within walking distance (500 m), offering a pedestrian street, tourist office and bike rental. There are several restaurants at the harbour, as well as in town.
The special Moler consists of diatoms that were deposited when the area was covered by sea. It contains fossils of plants and animals that lived in the area 55 million years ago. Many of these amazing finds can be seen at the Fossil and Mo-Clay Museum. Moler has a unique capacity for heat-insulation and is used for insulating stoves and chimneys.
Children on board
Mors offers a wealth of experiences for children. A flower park, Jesperhus, is located a mere 6 km from the marina and includes a Jungle Zoo with colourful animals, Denmark’s longest waterfall and an enormous aqua park.
Højriis Castle is the only castle on Mors. At Højriis, children and adults are offered the chance to play Sherlock Holmes and solve an old murder mystery. At Morsø Tractor Museum you will find mechanical action, and at the Skarregaard Agricultural Museum you can experience rural idyll as described by Danish author Morten Korch as well as machines from yesteryear. Mors also offers seal safari, amazing bathing beaches and a wealth of wonderful sailing experiences.
By the marina you will find the Yacht Club’s house, which has been expanded with amenities for visiting yachtsmen since the 1990s. Here, you will find a modern service building, a playground, cosy barbecue areas, a clubhouse and a yachtsman’s kitchen. Access to shower, water, and the sailor’s lounge with kitchen is included in the harbour fee, and you can access the facilities with a TallyCard.
Shopping & groceries in Nykøbing
Supermarkets, a harbour grocery store, a butcher’s shop and a pedestrian street with a wealth of stores are all within walking distance. So is the bus terminal; there are free busses on Mors, if you want to go on a trip outside the town. Nykøbing is a market town whose origin dates back to the 13th century. The town flourished and gained prosperity because of the island’s farmland and fishery in the Limfjord.
Pay a visit to Dueholm Monastery, Danish Foundry Museum, author Aksel Sandemose’s House, Nykøbing Church or Morsø Art Society. The population of Mors is around 20,000, of which 9,000 live in Nykøbing, and you can visit many small, authentic villages on the island.
During the first weekend of June every year, the Shellfish Festival kicks off the tourist season. This is a special occasion on which the island’s treasury provides the menu. Oysters, line mussels (common mussels grown on lines) and shrimp are cooked by skilled chefs who set mouths watering with the delicious smells wafting over Nykøbing Mors Harbour, and you are invited to taste it all.
