The City history dates back to about 1678 when the first houses were built. It was a commercial city until around 1900 and then Løkken became an important location for fishing. In that period Løkken also developed into a seaside resort with hotels and summer houses and is today known as "the white town". During summer the traditional white wodden bathing huts cover the beach along the coastline of Løkken. A special tradition you only find in Løkken. It started around 1900 when the rich people from Copenhagen came to Løkken on holiday.

Løkken has one of Northern Europes best beaches and the town grows from about 1.500 residents during winter up to many thousands in summer.

The town is situated on an old seabed from the Stone Age which explains the flat landscape. Looking north along the coastline to Nr. Lyngby you will see how the sea is breaking down the cliff. A little further north you will clearly see Lønstrup Klint which is about 100 meters high, behind the peak is the lighthouse Rubjerg Knude Fyr which is now hidden behind the constant build up of sand.

In-land above the flat land on Børglum Hill lies the old episcopal residence which dates back to around the year 1200. Løkken is a perfect starting point to discover Northern Jutland.
