Kvie Sø (lake) is located approx. 2 km north of Ansager in the western part of Jutland. Its surface is 30 ha, a rather big lake for the area.
Kvie Sø is circle shaped, generated by spring water and surrounded by wonderful nature. During summer Kvie Sø is “the bathing beach” of the area. The lake has shallow water, a sandy bottom and fine water quality and is extremely suited for the small children in particular. At the lake shore there is a play ground where the children can try their strength. You can walk around the lake by the so-called “heart paths” – hiking paths, approved by the Heart Association.
It is not allowed to go fishing in Kvie Sø, but in the neighbourhood you have Ansager Å and Varde Å (streams) as well as a number of fishing lakes, a true paradise for anglers. For the golf enthusiasts there are 7 different golf courses within a 30 minutes’drive from Kvie Sø. Ansager and Varde Å are perfect for a lovely nature experience in canoe. You must also try the Pandekagehuset at Kvie Sø where you can choose among 50 different dishes with pancakes – should be a Dutch tradition.
Kvie Sø is a perfect starting point for visiting great Danish tourist attractions such as Legoland and Givskud Zoo not far away from Kvie Sø. The oldest market town in Denmark is Ribe with its beautiful cathedral and Viking centre, worth a visit. If you are more interested in shopping or in art, you must visit Esbjerg, the “capital” of Western Jutland. It is only 45 minutes away by car.
