I think you cheapest option is Frederikshavn Vandrehjem (hostel). More info on their website www.danhostel.dk/vandrerhjem.asp?lan=uk.

Why stop there just because the ferries do??? Just curious. It's perfectly OK but there are more lively places in Denmark :-)

Hey, hey, hey,

Please talk nice about Frederikshavn - it's the city where I grew up and lived for 16 years!!!

Ok, I agree, there is not much to see during wintertime. No beach, the city is dead. Skagen is a much better choice in my opinion.

Haha, there you see! :-) But no, I haven't said a bad word! I've had fun in Frederikshavn many times having grown up in Göteborg. Even behaved all the time and avoided being seen as a drunk Swede :-) And there are good things...the ferry to Laeso ;-)

Travel Tips for Frederikshavn

Dana Cup Youth Football Tournament

by ValbyDK

If you visit Frederikshavn in the middle of July, you should take time to go and watch some really good youth football (soccer)…

Dana Cup is a famous youth football tournament and in 2008 there were teams from all over the World: Brazil, Mexico, India, Russia, USA, Scandinavia and more. The games were of high standard and many talented players. Maybe you will meet the new Ronaldinho?

" FREDERIKSHAVN - FACTS "

Frederikshavn is a cosy port town in the northern part of Jylland. Frederikshavn started as a fishing village in the 16th and 17th centuries and it was fortified in the late 17th century to secure the route to Norway. The original name was Fladstrand (Flat Beach) but was changed to Frederikshavn (Frederik’s Harbour - after King Frederik VI) when it received status as a merchant town in 1818.

Frederikshavn was hit hard with unemployment when the city's largest workplace, the shipyard Danyard, closed in the late 1990s. This resulted in more than 2000 workers being unemployed, but many new innovative projects were started - which are retaining population and attracting tourists. And Frederikshavn has many tourists; the ferry traffic from Norway and Sweden makes it a transit point for many people and the city can offer a number of shops corresponding to a Danish city of 80000 inhabitants instead of its 30000. Today Frederikshavn is an important centre for overseas trade, shipbuilding, fishing and related industries.

" MY VISIT "

I visited Frederikshavn in July, 2008 and stayed there for 4 nights. First of all I used the town as a base to explore the northern part of Denmark (Læsø and Skagen), but I also had time to have a closer look at Frederikshavn. I think the town is a pleasant and cheerful place with a great pedestrian street (Gågade) where you find everything you need in shops, cafes and restaurants. The town is famous for its plaice, and that was also one of my favourites on the menu card.

Frederikshavn has an amazing nature with the sea and hills. A walk along Dronningestien and through Bangsbo Park is a must. I really enjoyed my stay in Frederikshavn.

(Please notice that many hotels in Frederikshavn are fully booked in the middle of July during the Dana Football Cup).

Calm coast town

Frederikshavn, located on the north east side of Denmark, is for us swedes mostly famous for being the ferry stop from Gothenburg. 3,15 hours ferry trip from Sweden, and you're suddently in Denmark.
From Frederikshavn it's easy access to more famous sites as Skagen, but also the city itself has things to show for the visitors.

I was here during spring 2007 to cover the World Cup in floorball for women, and had two great days.

From Sweden to Denmark

"Ferry stops here"

This is the place if you want to cross from Denmark to Sweden by ferry "Stena Danica".

By fast catamaran, it takes only 2 hours to reach Gotebort in Sweden and 3.5 hours by the normal ferry.

By "Stena Danica" it took us 3.h hrs It was quite a pleasant ferry ride. We managed to sit somwhere near the windows and get a magnificent view of the sea as we sail along. There's plenty of restaurants and cafes, as well as children's playgroung, slot machines and video arcades.

Overall, it was a pleasant trip,

My Frederikshavn Page

by travelife

There is an effort to make every medium sized Danish town into a tourist attraction. Frederikshavn is the port town which is imprtant for the direct and shortest ferry connection between Jutland and Sweden (Gothenburg). Understandably Swedes use this ferry more to buy cheap alcohol on the ferry and/or taking time to get drunk in the bars in Frederikshavn. Apart from that this town is also on the way to Skagen, the northernmost town in Denmark. There is a public library where you may access free internet if while there is not pre-booking. There is also a nice cathedral.
