Pulsating life and a good atmosphere
Skagen is only approx. 30 minutes by car from Frederikshavn Nordstrand Camping.
Experience the pulsating harbour life from one of the many cheerful fish restaurants, or go for a walk in the cosy narrow streets between the characteristic yellow houses.
You can also take a tour out to Denmark’s northernmost point Grenen – either on foot or with Sandormen, the tractor bus which runs all summer. There’s parking at the starting point.
Gammelskagen is also worth a visit. There are several excellent restaurants surrounded by carefully restored houses, still in their original style. You can end the day by enjoying the sunset from “Solnedgangspladsen”, the sunset place, on the beach west of the city, or from “Kikkerbakken” under the navigation mark.
South of Skagen is the “Tilsandede Kirke” – the church which, except for the tower, is buried in sand – a popular destination for tourists.
A little further to the southwest is Råbjerg Mile – Denmark’s biggest drifting dune. The dune covers an area of about a square kilometre and contains about 3.5 million cubic metres of sand! The dune’s highest point is about 40 metres above sea level, so there’s quite a good view from the top.
