Hanstholm is a small town and a former island, now elevated area in Thisted municipality of Region Nordjylland, located in the northern part of Denmark. Co-ordinates:. Population of the area is about 3,500 (2004), and the town has a population of 2,157 (1 January 2014).the Danish Forest and Nature Agency.the Danish Forest and Nature Agency]]The nameThe former island Hanstholm has many placenames, including Hansted, Nørby, Gårddal, Ræhr, Hamborg, Bjerre, Febbersted, Krog, Nytorp and Vigsø. In the beginning of the second millennium, churches were built in Vigsø, Ræhr and Hansted, forming three parishes.At the end of the 20th century, Denmark's largest harbour was built in Hansted, and a 10-fold larger harbour town was needed. A new town was planned, covering the places Hansted, Gårddal and Nørby, and the new town was officially named Hanstholm. This has led to some confusion, because the people from the towns Ræhr and Vigsø live on Hanstholm, they live in Hanstholm postal district, they live in Hanstholm municipality, but they don't live in Hanstholm town.However, since all the parts of this new harbour town belong to Hansted parish, and because Hansted has been the harbour town for so many centuries, many people refer to this town simply as Hansted instead of Hanstholm.Besides Hanstholm and Hansted, one more name is related to this, Hanherred: Hansted means "The place of Han". This suffix is often used with town names in Denmark. Hanstholm means "The island of Hansted". Hanherred means "The herred of Han", where herred is an old-age administrative division.
