Port of Skagen (c) Cruise Skagen


Skagen is geographically located at the top of Denmark and at the same time on top of the European continent. Here the two seas - The Baltic Sea and the North Sea - and the whole world meet. At Grenen, the headland of the Skagen Odde spit, you can actually stand with one foot in the Baltic Sea and one foot in the North Sea! The sun shines for around 2.000 hours annually, which makes Skagen the sunniest place in Denmark.
The town of Skagen - a 600 year old market town - has a unique setting and a fascinating history. For generations, it has been painted and depicted by artists and poets. Even the famous fairy-tale writer Hans Christian Andersen lost his heart to Skagen.
Shopping in Skagen is always a treat. Whether you are on the lookout for designer clothes, ceramics or glassware, the famous Skagen watches or handmade amber jewellery, you'll find them all. Skagen is renowned for its high quality food products and freshly caught seafood.
