Bigger picture

The River Skjern (Danish: Skjern Å) is the largest river in Denmark. The river drains an area the size of approximately 10% of the entire country and is the most water rich river in Denmark. The average river discharge of water is 35 m³/second. The river drains the western part of Jutland westward of the Jutland ridge before discharging via the Skjern Å delta, which is the only river delta in Denmark, into the Ringkøbing Fjord, a bay of the North Sea near the town of Skjern. Large areas around the lower half part of the river and tributaries, to the estuary, is National park.

In Danish:
Skjern Å er den største flod i Danmark. Floden afvander et areal der i størrelse svarer til omkring 10% af hele Danmark og er den mest vandrige flod i landet. Den gennemsnitlige udledning af vand er 35 m³ / sekund. Floden afvander den vestlige del af Jylland vest for den jyske højderyg, før der udmunder via Skjern Å-deltaet, som er det eneste flod delta i Danmark, i Ringkøbing Fjord, en bugt i Nordsøen nær byen Skjern. Store områder omkring den nedre halvdel af floden og bifloder, til mundingen, er nationalpark.
