Sneglehuset, Thyborøn

The Shell House - amazing house decorated with millions of shells

The Shell House is of course situated in a street called Sneglevej (’Shell  Street’) in Thyborøn.
Everywhere, both inside and outside, the masonry and furniture are covered with ingenious designs created from snail shells and sea shells. This stunning house is made by a single man through a long life. The Shell House is a major tourist attraction – visited by the royal family.

Besides the many shells and sea shells, there is a large exhibition of ships in bottles whose quality of workmanship is unsurpassed. These unique ships are the hobby work of local fishermen.
