My second time to Grenen, a very nice view where Kattagat meets Skagerak. Nice beaches but cold water.

I went as a child with my family and was impressed by the two seas clashing. Today I went with my husband in a sunny break in the weather and enjoyed the walk out to the tip. Though there were many people I loved the drama of the seas colliding and I was just as impressed as I was as... More

A very special, breathtaking experience and place. Lovely beach with dunes, shells and powdery sand. It's quite amazing and unusual to see how the two seas meet and the waves collide. Absolutely worth going there and staying around for few days in the area.

One of the most curious places to stand in Denmark. The most northern point in Denmark, the place were Skagerrak and Kattegat meets. It's quite a trek on the beach from the parking lot, but you can get the Sandorm, which is a tractor pulling some coaches. The beaches a fantastic, and it is highly recommended to visit. Good advice.:... More

Grenen is like nothing else. To go to the top of the country and see the splitting waters of Kattegat and Skagerak. Pleferably do this off-season due to many tourists in the season. Best weather is when sky is cloudy/sunny and with strong winds, this reveals the wonders of the Skagen atmosphere!

Did not expect to see a beautiful sand dune in northern Europe. It was quite geographical wonder. The seawater was too cold to swim even though it was a bright and sunny day. The amazing thing was that I was standing at a place on the beach to witness the meeting of the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. I... More

Yes, it is the other reason (the first being the Skagen Museum). We went to Grenen in June and it was amazing to see the two sees meeting in this strange and original way. I guess it is more impressive when the weather is a bit stronger. It is not only the seas, but the whole combned aura of the... More

We hiked along the beach from the train station, walked to the tip and stood in the water. Relaxed with a ice cream after and walked back on the road. Really cool. There is a bus thing you can take, but I'd only do that if there is a problem that prevents you from walking. It looked v touristy and... More

Visited for sunrise and later in day with family, very nice place- guessing only as long as the weather is good! The kids loved it.
