Skagen – The pearl of Denmark
As the most Northern city of Denmark, Skagen is a true pearl. The beaches are beautiful, the water is clear, and the old fishing town is booming of life. Here, you have plenty of time to enjoy life and try the exquisite dining experiences of tasty fresh food.
The perfect city for all seasons
City life in Skagen blooms in the summer, but fun events take place all year around. Visit the inspiring museums and dwell at the paintings by world-famous Skagen artists such as P.S. Kroeyer, Michael Ancher, Holger Drachmann, and J.F. Willumsen. Perfect for the surroundings is Skagen Odde Nature Center, which is consistent with the beautiful scenery and atmosphere of the city because visitors can get explanations for the natural phenomena that take place in the area.
Place one foot in each sea
If the weather is too good to be inspired by the museums, it is sure that you can find plenty of inspiration along the beach sides. Denmark’s northernmost point “The Branch” hosts a unique natural phenomenon. This fascinating tourist attraction is a 30-kilometer long spit formation made of sand, making it one of the longest spits in the world. Here the Baltic and the North Sea meet, where the collision of the waves is clearly visible to the naked eye. Place one foot in each sea and experience the rich wildlife of the protected nature reserve, where seals are calmly sunbathing next to you.
Watch Rare Bird Species Migrating
Not only tourists flock to the top of Denmark. The Branch is also a hotspot for many migratory birds and is one of Europe’s best bird migration sites. At Skagen Grey Lighthouse you can not only experience the breathtaking view from the top of the lighthouse, but also visit the Center for migratory birds, and enjoy the virtual flight, where birds travel thousands of kilometers from their home to their breeding grounds in the north.
