Go on a sunny day and pack a picnic with a bottle of wine, chips, bread, cheese and a blanket. Even on busy days the walk on the sunny beach is fun. The water is mesmerizing as it crashes together. Then picnic in the fall grass protected from the constant winds.

We have been there in a foggy day, but it didn't stop us from enjoying the beautiful view and nature. The seas meeting gives you some kind of freedom feeling that you won't regret. I recommend renting a bike and hitting the place at sunrise or sunset for avoiding the mass of tourists.

Wildly windy place where the two oceans meet. It is interesting to actually see that two oceans don't mix. Fun to ride the Sandormen vehicle to Grenen from the carpark, esp if short on time.

Just before or just within Skagen take the road to Grenen and you will find a big parking (payable). Then you need to walk about 20 minutes on the beach but the effort is worthwile, you will find yourself and the tip of Danemark where Kattegat and Skagerrak meet. Beautiful. Lot's of people do this, you will not be alone

We walked from our hotel (in Skagen) to Gammel Skagen (the old, small village on the west side of the peninsula) then north eastwards along the beach until we reached Green Skagen - where the North Sea and Baltic meet) and then back along the coast into Skagen. The beach walk was wonderful. Miles and miles of empty beaches with... More

We did a major hike from one side of Skagen to the other and then walked upto Grenen, around the point and back into town. The hike was a little challenging on the west coast where some private properties cut off the coastal path. But the walk around the point made it completely worthwhile. To approach Grenen from the west... More

The most northerly point of Denmark is where two oceans, the North Sea and the Baltic Ocean meet. Walk out onto the sand, look at the waves coming from different directions collide and walk out a bit so you stand with one foot in each ocean. Outside of the unique factor, there are only sand dunes and seabirds to see.... More

If you visit Skagen it is obligatory to visit Grenen where two oceans meet and you can see the waves rolling towards each other. It's not so close to town, but it is possible to walk. We used rollerblades so it was quick for us. When you arrive there is a parking lot (you have to pay for it) and... More

See the two seas, Skagerak and Kattegat meet here at the very tip of Denmark. The light is - as the Skagen painters discovered - amazing.

Awesome! The northern-most point of mainland Europe. Even walking 1.5 km up to the top and 1.5 km back in the rain it was a great feeling walking in the water and enjoying the sea on both sides of you.
