The charm of the port
The beautiful harbour, which has space for over 200 boats, is home to many yachts. In the summer there will always be a lot of life at the marina. The landmark of the port is the Vindharpe sculpture, which was created from two scrapped fishing boats from Hirtshals. The sculpture forms the front end of the breakwater and is more than "just" a sculpture. The sculpture bears the name "Windharp" because when the wind blows through the sculpture, it produces some unique and almost ethereal notes. No stay in Hou would be complete without a visit to the bustling harbour area, where both locals and tourists alike love to come and enjoy the view and atmosphere.
