Lohals and Hou

Lohals is Langeland’s northernmost city. The city has a cosy harbour, where the cultural house Banjen during the summer is framework for many music events and a very well visited meatball festival called “frikadellefest”.

Contrary to many other small cities, in Lohals there are still opportunities to buy exactly what you need. With a supermarket, a bakery and the possibility to buy arts and crafts etc., the city is still an active and living place. The beach north of the city is a nice sandy beach with a bathing jetty and it is frequently used all year round. Lohals and Hou are excellent starting points for many excur­sions, with water on three sides and large forest areas, the nature invites to be explored either on foot or bicycle.
