Denmark is a wonderful country! It offers up inspiring cultural experiences and very unique natural wonders. My family loves it, of course, we are prejudiced, this is where we are from.
We were visiting family in Djursland and we were spending the day driving up to the "Tip of Denmark". On our drive north, we spent an hour visiting the Viking graves at Lindholm Hoj, before heading up to Skagen. We had been here before and of course we were looking forward to a repeat visit. You can take the "Sandormen", a wagon pulled by a tractor out to the Grenen, the furthermost spit of The Skagen Odde, something that all who journey here must do. There is so much to see here, more then just standing on the spit of sand, feeling the waters of both the Skagerak and Kattegat, lapping at your feet from two directions. After you have done this, head into the town for a walk along the streets, lined with red-tiled roofs with white trimmings, yellow plastered walls and white fenced houses, so typical of the area. The little town is bustling with shops, even some selling the famed Skagen watches, and of course, bakeries selling famous Danish treats, (might I suggest, Krages Bageri?)
On your drive back, you must stop into see the Tilsandede Kirke, a 14th century church that was forced into closure by the encroaching sand, then, afterwards go for a walk on the sand dunes of Rabjerg Mile.
It is no wonder that "The Skagen Painters" were "drawn' to the area.
Certainly a visit to Northern Jylland is incomplete, without visiting The Skagen Odde!
