Info in english

Anholt Touristinformation is open all year round with changing different opening hours. However, it is always possible to leave a message on the answering machine or send a fax. We have visitors roughly speaking from week 7 until Christmas and New Year’s Eve but July is absolutely the peak of the season.

What do you do in winter?

The islanders take care of job, home and family like anybody else. Most inhabitants know when and where to find fungi, berries, etc. On the other hand, a visit to the theatre, cinema or a wild shopping trip are rare. The nearest city is Grenaa on the mainland, nearly 3 hours away with the ferry.

Anholt has appr. 150 inhabitant – 9 small children, 23 school children (incl. older hcildren in school on the mainland) and 123 grown-ups, incl. 39 pensionists.

The labour market on Anholt differs from other places in that you have to have several jobs in order to have full employment. The post-office clerk also works at the tourist agency, the craftsman assists on the harbour, etc. Not counting jobs within tourism, there are som 30 different trades and professions on Anholt that keep people busy. The island is a living society, - even in winter. Up till now we have succeeded in balancing between summers with about 5.000 people on the island per day, and winters with about 150.
