Filsø - 2,320 ha lake, meadows, dune heath, dunes, scrub and wood. Previously the largest lake in Jutland, but from 1852 and onwards most of the lake was reclaimed for cultivation. The remnants of the lake have, however, always attracted large flocks of resting water birds, and now about 900 ha lake surface is being recreated. Building of paths and bird observation towers is planned to facilitate public access.
