Grenen Skagen, Skagen

4.6
#1 of 56 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.

  • Always a pleasure to experience one of Denmarks special places. The waters of Skagerak and Kattegat meeting on the tip of Jutland.  more »
  • The beach in Grenen shows itself in all its beauty from the outset: white sand dunes with patches of Wild Roses lie beneath a single lamp, and gradually along the shore towards the far end of Denmark, you can see the magic of this place. Two seas, two tides, two blue colors meet and merge. On the one hand, the North Sea, more turbulent, Skattegat on the other, with mild waves. Not to be missed!

  • Of course, you have to go here 3 days if you are in the area. What a mighty pretty face. We did have first boot up problems with the parking meter. Our Dutch MasterCard did not. Fortunately we were able to exchange money. But first you get a walk on the beach (3 km?), but we had beautiful weather so that was no problem. When really coming together of the 2 seas you'll see a ledge into the water, very special. It was also fairly busy in the water at that place but there's so much space that that not bothersome. It is also a wide beach. There is a a tourist train/cart from the parking lot to the conscious point. The cost of that again I don't. We have in each case really enjoyed a special piece of Denmark.

  • 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.
  • Where Baltic Sea and North Sea together must meet you have seen. If you're lucky seals lie on the beach. A super natural experience. Enough parking places are available. Toilets system in a clean state.

  • The place is unique with the meeting of the North Sea and the Baltic. However there are crowds on the small strip of sand where waves meet. Windy guaranteed.

  • Beach, bunkers, beautiful dunes and nature and of course the northernmost point of Denmark. As a bonus a baby seal with mother spotted! Great. Most impressive, I found the large cargo ships off the coast. Sanitary facilities.
