Sandy, family beach, close to town, featuring the bascule light as an attractive landmark.
The Skagen painters found the inspiration for many of their famous paintings here.
The beach is car-free - good for families.
This is also where Skagen´s Midsummer Eve bonfire is lit every year.
In the Top of Denmark we have nature's treasure trove just outside the door. Fresh fish from the sea, mushrooms, berries and herbes from the woods and plantations. At the farm shops they produce vegetables and berries with lots of flavour tempting you to cook delicous meals with local taste.
When the two seas collide, this produces very spe- cial conditions. The waves come from either side to create a tremendously strong undercurrent. For that reason, swimming is not allowed at the tip of Grenen. But you are welcome to soak your feet and try standing with one foot in each sea at the same time.
At the Top of Denmark, the fishing town of Skagen has been welcoming seafarers from near and far since the early Middle Ages.
Port of Skagen is Denmark ’s northernmost cruise port and at the same time the largest fishing port and also a very popular yachting port.
From wild to mild – Desert-like dunes of Råbjerg MileLush forests, miles of sandy beaches glistening in intense sunlight, the pounding surf of 2 seas meeting.
The breathtaking scenery at the Top of Denmark has been a source of inspiration for artists, poets and musicians, and the delight of tourists for generations.
