Since 1100 A.C. Tibirke Hills has been used by the surrounding farms as grass fields to their animals.

Since 1700 sandstorm from Kattegat Sea covered Tibirke Hills and neighboring farmers with 1-2 meter of sand. The hills were cultivated with hjelme, marehalm and grass.

Neighboring 17 km2 area Tisvilde Hegn were since 1800 cultivated by forest to protect the area against sandstorm.

Tibirke Hills were since 1800 cultivated as a grass-growing area to animals from neighboring farms.

 

Tibirke Hills are a Nature Protected Area under Danish law “Naturbeskyttelsesloven” and EU-Habitat Natura 2000 nr. 135 (H119) to protect nature and its biodiversity.

In 1957 a Protection Danish Law  ordered Tibirke Hills to be an open area with low growth of vegetation so the original landscape can be seen from all directions.

There are 47 summerhouses in Tibirke Hill with strict regulations of form, color and roof of the houses. Each plot of land is minimum 10.000 m2.
