Expierence Platform - Pat a fish and catch a crab

"Pat a Fish" at Hundested Harbour is a fascinating attraction for children and adults - the 75-square-meter floating platform is equipped with two shallow mixing basins. Every morning during the high season, the pools are filled with fishing flatfish and crabs so that you can get close to the marvellous world of the sea.

Come to the harbour in Hundested and have a fantastic experience on the extensive experience platform, where you can pat fish and catch crabs.

Local fishermen pick up different fish species and crabs from the Kattegat and the Isefjord every morning, so fresh fish are in the pools. The facility is open 24 hours a day. You can visit it from Easter to the end of October. During the winter period, the pools are closed and without fish.

To information

If there is a net over the pools when you arrive, it does not mean it is closed; but you MUST remove the net YOURSELF and set it aside. Likewise, the one last on the platform in the evening must put the nets on again. You do not have to book time on the platform. You show up, and it is open to everyone.

What else can you experience?

At Hundested Harbour, there is a lot to experience. And everything is within a short walking distance from the Clap a Fish facility. You can visit the famous Sand Sculpture Festival, where the meter-high sand sculptures tower. 

When hunger or thirst arises, there is ample opportunity to quench your hunger or thirst at one of the harbour's many restaurants. You can also walk or drive and visit the famous polar researcher's workhouse Knud Rasmussen's House in the beautiful rampart area with the most amazing views of the Kattegat.
