Grenen Skagen, Skagen

4.7
#1 of 31 in Nature in Denmark
Hiking Trail Water Body
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. Plan to visit Grenen Skagen during your Skagen vacation using our convenient Skagen trip itinerary maker.

  • A must when visiting the Skagen. However, it quickly becomes crowded and confined to the parking lots. Take the advantage there in the morning or late afternoon. Swimming is not allowed at the Branch because of the currents. But it is beautiful to look at and to walk along the beach.

  • An obvious visit if you are in North Jutland. Awesome to stand at the crotch between two seas. Long way to go from the parking lot, can be difficult to find a parking space if there are very many visitors.
