A bustling suprise with great shopping, eating, art and natural landsape.

We made two visits to Skagen, both in the height of the tourist season. We were surprised to be able to park at no charge on both occasions. There are some really good shops... read more

We made two visits to Skagen, both in the height of the tourist season. We were surprised to be able to park at no charge on both occasions. There are some really good shops different from others we saw in Denmark, There are good restaurants, mostly of low to mid budget price. And the land and sea scapes around the... More

On the way back from a Baltic cruise the liner visited a small port situated right at the northernmost tip of Denmark. Skagen, a pretty little fishing port where you can stand on the shore with one foot in the Baltic Sea and the other in the North Sea! At the beginning of July each year Skagen holds a music... More

It had a holiday feeling,the day we spend in Skagen. We loved the fact that a lot of houses were painted white and yellow with red roofs. It was very touristy when we were there during the July holliday season. But very nice. Do visit the harbour. Nice boats.

Visited Skagen (pronounced Skane) on a cruise. I have two of the watches, otherwise would not have heard of this town. Not even the employees on the ship pronounced it correctly, including the Captain. Royal Caribbean had just added this port. You could tell, as it was cute to see the local residents and their children with their cameras watching... More

After our cruise itinerary was changed and Skagen was our new first port of call I admit that I wasn't expecting much and was ready to be disappointed, how wrong I was. We arrived at 7am with the welcoming sound of the school or youth brass band playing on the quayside. The town had opened their shops at 7 to... More

While we were only there for the day, it's a place I have to write about. It's a small picturesque town. Mainly a fishing port. Everything you need is within walking distance and the streets are wheelchair friendly. The shops are for locals and tourists alike. One thing I would recommend buying is a Skagen watch. We found the local... More

This is a nice, friendly, little town in North Jutland with a spectacular nature, small, beautiful, mostly yellow houses, museums and lots of shops and restaurants. Suggestions: Grenen (The Branch) is the place where the Skagerak meets the Kattegat and you can stand with one leg in each sea. Try this. Østerby is the most pitoresque part of the town.... More

This is a beautiful clean town with lots of interesting shops and restaurants, particularly on the harbour front. The museums are great - you really find out why the artists loved the area. Check out the opening times though as we missed seeing the main paintings because the museum that housed them was closed for refurbishment. If you need a... More
