The dune and heath landscape of Thy was officially selected on 29 June 2007 to be the first national park in Denmark proper (Northeast Greenland National Park was established in 1974). Other national parks have been established later.
The governmental Forest and Nature Agency states:
"A Danish national park contains the most unique and characteristic Danish nature.
The idea is about improving and strengthening the Danish nature, and giving both local and foreign visitors better possibilities to experience, use and get knowledge about nature, the landscape and the history of civilization."
Thy National Park is thus not just a simple tourist attraction.
