Grenen Skagen, Skagen

4.6
#1 of 55 in Nature in Denmark
Stand on one of the most northerly points of Denmark, with your feet in two seas at once, at Grenen Skagen. The point is lined with soft, white sand and offers expansive views of the waves created by the meeting of the two different waters: the Baltic Sea and the North Sea. Hop on a tractor leaving from the visitor center for a quick ride down to the beach, where you can watch the sunset or take a walk. Be on the lookout for the seals, whales, and orcas that are often spotted in the water. The area is very exposed to the elements and is known to be quite windy, so check the weather forecast ahead of time and prepare accordingly. Keep in mind that swimming is prohibited, as the currents are dangerously strong. Grenen Skagen is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Skagen Edition.

  • Spent a couple hours out on the beach at Grenen. Well worth it- the ocean and sand were beautiful. I was out on a very sunny day (wish I had shades). Took the tractor out which was fun  more »
  • We came, we saw, and won the danskerne. We, too, the experience is just great for a small girl child that can plant their bones in the two seas at the same time. Take an ice cream in the calculation and everything is perfect.

  • It was a cold and windy day. We had hoped to see seals, as we have previously seen on the trip to the branch. Unfortunately not succeeded, but it was fun to see that the tip on the branch turned West after several days of easterly wind.

  • It was a beautiful sunny day when we drove to Grenen. The sea and views were breathtaking. It was quite peaceful though it attracts a lot of tourists.
  • Beautiful place.
  • Beautiful place! A class feeling to stand with one leg in the Baltic Sea and the other in the North Sea. Also, it's all clean and neat, there is much to see, a visit is worthwhile in any case!

  • A unique, wonderful, awesome place. The union of the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. Two giants faced by its waves and right in between you, the language of land from the beach. To this it must be added some lovely visitors, seals, who rest and frolic on the beach. That Yes, we need to avoid disturbing them, we must be respectful. The visit is worth.

  • A very beautiful site, all year round! One tip is to go out to the point instead of taking Sand snake.
