Skagen Denmark

I am interested in renting bikes and cycling up to Grennen. Or is this a walkable distance?? We are on a cruise and have one day in Skagen. Trying to make up the day itinerary, and be back for a concert at the Skagen Music Festival at 7pm.

Any suggestions??

The walking distance from the harbour is roughly 4 kms, meaning 1 - 1,25 hour on foot.

There are a few public buses in summer:


But having bikes will make it possible to see a good deal more of the area & probably be fun ;-)

It is absolutely best to use a bike. It is a long walk and you will always have head-wind in one direction - like you are blown in the other. You find bike-rentals in the town. At least one in end of pedestrian street and one close to the yacht harbour. It is also worth taking a ride to Old skagen (Gamle Skagen).

Thank you! Having the bus schedule is very helpful. Can you tell me if these buses run on Sundays? If the weather is good we'll rent bikes, but if rainy it would be great to take the bus.

Yes, the buses run on all days - but only July1 to August 11.

You can certainly drive to the beach - but you can only get as close to the northernmost point of Denmark as the parking area by Skagen Bunkermuseum and Grenen Kunstmuseum - from there it's sand all the way.(Google maps is great for checking things like this - especially in street view mode)

Fortunately you can get to the tip of Grenen by way of a tractor-trailer called Sandormen: http://www.sandormen.dk/

I had the same situation as you last summer. the weather that time will be a bit warm and as Joen mentioned the distance is not to much, So I think walking gives you an opportunity to enjoy seeing the landscapes.
