Hirtshals will throughout 2019 be celebrating its 100 year anniversary.
In 2019 it is 100 years since the government launched a large-scale urban development in Hirtshals. Ministry of Public Works placed the time of construction of the port. That same year it was announced that a town planning competition for the urbanization would cause. The state had previously expropriated 314 acres of land for the expansion of the future city.
In connection with the city's 100th anniversary, a relay has started. The Port of Hirtshals has made 100 numbered 100 kg cement blocks, which are placed around the city by 100 different people with related story of choice of location. The idea is to share their favorite places with everyone, residents of Hirtshals and guests. See the map below, which is being updated as more blocks are being places.
