One foot in the two seas

You have to see it, to feel it before you can understand the fabulous spot. In addition, the nature light make it to a place to make photos unlike all other places.

We have been at Grenen many times through many years and it is really amazing to see how the tip of Grenen is moving slowly more and more towards the east, and to witness the very strong currents in the sea. It is kind of heavy work walking in the deep sand, so no matter how sporty you feel; take... More

I don't know how to explain the feeling when you stand in the spot where the two seas meet. I and my kid love it here!! Especially, the "Sandormen" tractor-bus vehicle :) my kid loves that too. We visited this place for the 2nd time and never get bored of it, will definitely visit again.

Getting to Skagen and then Grenen is off the beaten track unless coming by ferry into Frederikshavn. We went for the experience of being at the northernmost point of Denmark and to get the vision of the merging of two seas at the narrow tip. Well worth the 2 hour drive each way from where we had been and were... More

There is something magical about standing in the spot where two seas meet. A reminder that the world is bigger than just where you're standing at the moment. And the 30 minute along the gentle surf gives you time to soak it in, look at the shoreline for pebbles and small shells, and walk through the water with your pants... More

Went by tractor-bus through the sand dunes to Denmark's most northern point Grenen, and it is always a special experience. The pointed stretch was still visible this time and it is a special treat to see Skagerak and Kattegat meet.

Didn't go right to the end of the spit, but went to the grey lighthouse and climbed up and had a fabulous view from there, great for photos.

Our journey up to Skagen was grey and damp but the clouds cleared as we approached the town. The whole area was bathed in sunlight and was beautiful. We all took our shoes off and paddled from the Baltic sea to the North Sea - Amazing how much of a temperature difference there is in 10 metres. UK people should... More

Hope for the windiest day of all days and see the seas collide. This is the northernmost spot of Denmark, and it is over a kilometre walk over the beautiful beach. The view is amazing. Swimming is not allowed. There are German bunkers around, and the new lighthouse as well (the old one is a bit further). It does get... More

Wonderful place, a long beach in the point where 2 seas meet together. You must walk for 15-20 minutes to reach the end from the parking, but absolutely to see.
