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

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

Skagen is a beautiful small town located at the tip of the Jutland peninsula, close to the site for the ferries to and from Norway. 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
