Great nature, fun to be on the top of Denmark. Both the trip with the tractor "Sandormen" or the foot walk from the parking lot to the top is worth experiencing.

It's that special place where the sea west of Denmark (Skagerak) and the sea east of Denmark (Kattegat) meats. You can stand at the beach and see how the two currents makes the waves crop up. It is also known as the most northern point of Denmark, so next stop Norway. (In reality, the geographically most northern point is 700... More

A wonderful place to visit - very interesting and a sight one should not miss. Nice restaurant and the natural habitat is great especially the sea birds you can see.

If you go to Grenen first, then hurry to the Skagen museum, and vice versa. Take your shoes off and stroll along the beach, unchanged scenery since creation.

It is worth the effort to head up here for the token paddle in the North and Baltic seas. The sand was soft and the water was crystal clear. Although chilly, it was lovely to paddle - please note that swimming is not advised here. There were plenty of tourists, and a tractor ride seemed to be an enjoyable way... More

One of the most beautiful place in Denmark, but also very windy. Soft sand everywhere. Great sunset.

Hire bikes in Skagen and cycle against the wind up the cycle track to Grenen . Then walk along the beach through the chilling surf if you can stand the cold. Enjoy the utter power of nature as the two seas collide. Forget the tractor thing. That is for wimps.

We took the Sandormen tractor that transports guests to and from the very tip of Denmark. The price is 25 danish crowns for a return ticket. The trip takes about 10 minutes. But if you prefer you can also walk the 1300 meters along the beach. Once on the tip you disembark 20 meters from the tip. Once there people... More

It’s a real miracle in the northern part of Denmark! We were really lucky to have the opportunity to stay on the “hill” near the beach and admire the two different colors of the Baltic and North Sea. After a nice walk between the WW II bunkers on the sand dunes we reached the end of the peninsula where the... More
