World Heritage at the island Fur

The Limfjord island Fur tells a unique story. The scenery of the island is so special that it candidate for inscription on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Cliffs, rocks, and scenery tell a story about the passage of time and extreme climate changes caused by volcanic power.
