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

The small town houses are filled with shops. On the market place you will find a nice candle store. There are many seafood restaurants and a steak house. Check out first the opening hours of the restaurants before you get too hungry. Besides local specialities, look out for the italian restaurants too. A walk through the town leads you to... More

The Skagen watch factory is here and they have a display and sales area that is not to be missed if one is looking for an elegant watch at a reasonable price. Skagen also has... More

Skagen is a 600 year old town on the very top of Denmark. The light is very special. The paintersb100 Years ago found out that the two oceans meeting at Grenen meant a special light. Their paintings is world known. Comeback and see it yourself.

Had wanted to visit the meeting of the Skagerrak and the Kattegat near Skagen from recommendations from a previous visit to Denmark. We took a train from Aalborg via Frederikshavn (about an hour or so). Skagen, a pretty town, lived up to its reputation as an artistic place with its great 'light'. We walked to the meeting of the North... More

What a fantastic place to go. A friend took me up here, would never have thought of it myself! lovely walks through the sand dunes to the open peninsula where you stand at the tip whilst the seas merge over your feet :-) Skagen town is full of the typical yellow houses and buildings with the red roofs. Very well... More

Cozy town with a Saint-Tropez atmosphere in Northern Denmark. Vibrant restaurants and terraces by the harbour, tight of sailboats and beautiful yachts in the summer. The place to be for sea lovers from Scandinavia.
