A Picture Perfect Port

This seaside town is one of Denmark’s main fishing ports, a cute little get-away destination with lovely beaches.

In the late 19th century the wild landscape and quality of light drew the attention of artists, who came to paint and take a break from the city. They became quite famous as the Skagen School, and some of their work is featured in the local art museum.

Each July the town hosts a major folk festival, with performances by bands from around the world – folk, folk rock, jazz, ballads, blues, and perhaps some never before heard new variations on the theme.

Often referred to as the largest moving sand dune in Denmark, the dune has been steadily moving west since the 1500s. The pace is slow, only about 15 yards annually, but the progress has been continuous. A popular place for hiking, the giant dune is a designated conservation area.
