Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This article describes the influence of man on the coastal landscapes along the Danish and part of the German west coast. While the tidal coast south of Blåvandshuk was formed by man since premedieval times, the northern part of Jutlands coast nearly avoided human influence until the late 19th century when dune plantation and coast protection was begun. At the same time, the first harbours were built by the Danish state, mainly for fishing purposes. The human influence increased through the 20th century, with tourism as a main factor
