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'. We walked to the meeting of the North and Baltic seas via the sand dunes, not availing of the tractor transport that was on hand. On the way we visited a Tower with an art show in progress and said we would purchase on the way back.
Quite a number of people were viewing the troubled meeting of the seas having travelled out via the long sand spit. It was an impressive sight and well worth the trip. A video, rather than a photo, would better catch the feeling of the place.
On the return journey we visited the Bunkermuseum, with its WWII memorabilia, which explained the presence of the many Nazi bunkers in the vicinity as being part of the so-called Atlantic Wall, although in this case stretching into the Baltic! Unfortunately the Art Gallery in the Tower was closed on our return.
