“Nice place, but nothing much to see”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

It was windy and cloudy when I was at the beach, and I think it could be very nice during the nice weather

“Standing where two seas meet”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

I raced to get to Grenen before the sun set because I knew the photos would be great. I was not disappointed. Where else can you literally stand with one foot in one sea and one in the other while visually seeing the seas crash into each other? Photos of the sun-lit North Sea countered with the dark and gloom skies over the Baltic Sea. Yes it is a drive to go to the 'End of Denmark' but you will better understand why the Skagen artists loved the scenery once you visit.

“Must see”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Where two seas clash, this place is something special. Nomatter the wether, the MUST DO thing is to stand with one leg in each of the two seas, having your picture taken hat way. The walk from the parking lot is very easy and quickly done. Remember to stop at the grave of Holger Drachmann :-)

“Always interesting”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

Grenen is the northernmost tip of Denmark and always an interesting place to visit. The shape of the tip depends on the weather and currents. Sometimes you will see seals basking in the sunshine (please do NOT touch the baby seals even if they arecrying. Their mothers will come back for them as soon as you leave). You can actually see how the two seas meet in the middle. Take off your shoes and socks and stand with a foot in each sea :-)
The tip is quite a distance to walk so if you are disabled, elderly or plain lazy, catch one of the tractor pulled wagons that make the trip several times an hour.

“Must go place in North Denmark ...”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

Denmark has a few must see destinations, this is definitely one of them ... the feeling you get standing on a sunny day having waves from two rolling over each other is unique ... go
