Skagen

Here on the northern narrow tip of the peninsula Skagens Odde there's so much to see and do. The yellow houses with white "lace" roof-decorations in Skagen, the fisherman atmosphere in Aalbæk's harbour, 'Den Tilsandede Kirke' (The Buried Church) and the fascinating nature: The migrating dune 'Råbjerg Mile', the large birds of prey in the wild at 'Eagleworld' and the sand-spit 'Grenen', just north of Skagen, where the waters of Skagerak and Kattegat meet and you can place a foot in each sea.

The distance between the western and the eastern coast is only a few kilometres. On the east coast, you will find that the sea is gentle and the beaches are child-friendly. The west coast is a bit "wilder", great for bathing and perfect for surfing. All beaches in this area have Blue Flag certificates.

The nature around Skagen is impressive and unparalleled. The many white sandy beaches are some of the best beaches in Denmark, and they all have the Blue Flag certificate. The nature is characterized by unspoiled heathlands with forests and dunes. Around Skagen there are spectacular dune plantations where amazing experiences await you. In the woods, children will shiver when they pass the mysteriously looking "troll trees" with moss covered branches. Delicious mushrooms and berries grow here in the forests and plantations, and in one of them near Skagen you can see what remains of 'Den Tilsandede Kirke' (The Buried Church).

The wild North Sea or the calm Kattegat?

South of Skagen you will find Aalbæk, a place known and loved for its beautiful beaches and the authentic harbor environment.

Are you looking for child-friendly beaches with shallow waters and gentle waves, you will love Lodskovvad/Hvideklit or Hulsig on the quiet east coast. If you prefer the slightly wilder west coast, then visit Kandestederne or Skiveren.
