Central village with border history
Egebæk and Hviding was originally two country settlements that now have grown together around an old border station and a psychiatric hospital, which was housed in the old station and customs buildings from 1923 to 2014.
Originally, there were two settlements placed on either side of the Danish-German border: Egebæk on the north and Hviding on the south. Today, the old border area binds the village together, and it is the old border area that forms the heart of the village, where you can find the culture and activity center, Wadden Sea School, and the village shops.
There are many detached houses in family-friendly neighborhoods in Egebæk-Hviding, and the young village is characterized by its many new houses in the northwestern part of the settlement (old Egebæk) as well as in the village’s center and former border area. Notable buildings in the village, such as “the castle”, the gendarme house and the hospital, lay testament to its exciting past.
There are many young families living in Egebæk-Hviding and the village has a well-functioning association life, where the school, culture, and activity center are focal points.
