Visit the beautiful Sea Captain's House on Romo. The house is an intact whaler's home from the 1700s. Here, you will find both a huge sperm whale skeleton, a unique view of the Wadden Sea and elaborate decor from the period. It is open for visits at Easter, and in the summer and autumn. The Sea Captain's House on the island of Romo in south-western Jutland is a preserved whaler's home and one of the island's old houses that were once owned by wealthy families. The name of the residence refers to the captains, who in the 17th and early 18th centuries commanded large whaling boats, which went on trading trips and long whaling expeditions in the North Atlantic. The Sea Captain's House has a cosy cafe where you can enjoy views over the Wadden Sea. Admission to the Sea Captain's House on Romo is free.

This is a beautifully restored house that used to belong to a Whaling captain. It feels like stepping into a period that is long gone. Beautiful decorations all around so it must have been a pretty well of family that used to live here. In...More
