Højer (German:Hoyer, North Frisian Huuger), is a town with a population of 1,265 (1 January 2010)[1] and a former municipality in south Denmark, in Region of Southern Denmark on the west coast of the Jutland peninsula. The municipality covered an area of 117 km², and had a total population of 2,861 (2005). Its last mayor was Peter Christensen, a member of the Social Democrats (Socialdemokraterne) political party.
