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'.

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.

Great walkability. Use the train service to get there and walk or ride your bike through the lovely streets. The home gardens are beautiful.

If you come out of season this town is nice and quiet. Nothing much has happened in Skagen the past century. So the houses are the same, the beaches are beautiful and people can be nice. In the town you have to see the famous painting museum and grab som fish.

The town is very pleasant with a number of shops, bars and restaurants. It is very clean and an enjoyable place to be although it seemed very quiet when we were there even on a Monday morning at 9.30am.

Skagen town is well worth a visit. Small beutiful yellow houses. Main street is obviously a bit touristy (but for a reason), Renting a bike is a good way to explore the area. Beaches looked really nice (allthough it was cold an rainy when we were there).
