That’s what it says on one of the tombstones in the churchyard at Nyord. It’s a good story. Local enthusiast William Houmann has all the fun and quirky Nyord stories at his fingertips. You’ll know him by his straw hat and ladies’ bicycle.

A new experience
There are almost no cars in Nyord Village. That in itself is a new experience. Only the locals (and handicapped visitors) are allowed to drive here. But you don’t really need to be motorised, anyway – everything is within walking distance. It’s a pretty friendly island.
