Facts and Research

By creating Geopark West Jutland, we wish to contribute to an understanding of the connection between past, present and future - between landscape, nature and cultural heritage.

Therefore, the theme about the Landscape describes how the landscape in the geopark area is created by ice, water and wind. There are 48 Geosites - these are special sites, that form the basis for the geopark designation.

Under the topic History, you will find examples of how people have settled and supported themselves in the area working with and sometimes also against landscape features, climate and nature.

Both people and geological processes have played a major role in the development of the very diverse and beautiful nature in the geopark. Nature itself also has its own landscape architects. You can find these stories under the topic Nature.

Our knowledge about and understanding of the geopark grows as a wide range of topics are researched. Under the theme Research we will describe a series of projects and present the results as they are published.
