if i remember right, then the last bit from aalborg to skagen is a private railway, that is not included in eural.
you wont have a problem getting to aalborg and from there skagen is pretty close.

In fact, I think you can get as far as Frederikshavn which is really close. When I lived in Gothenburg I took that train route home from Germany sometimes to catch the ferry in Frederikshavn and I never had to change trains.

thats right.
frederikshavn is connected with DSB trains.

From Copenhagen, you can go by train all the way to Skagen. From Copenhagen to Frederikshavn, there are direct DSB intercity trains every other hour (free with Eurailpass), it is recommended to make a seat reservation, at least for peak hour travel (Monday and Sunday afternoon), a seat reservation costs 20 DKK. The last leg from Frederikshavn to Skagen (40 km) is with a private railway, Skagensbanen (Nordjyske Jernbaner). On this last leg, Eurail passholders get a 50% discount, according to www.eurail.com. Check www.rejseplanen.dk for timetable details, I counted 8 connections per day with one train change in Frederikshavn. It's quite a long trip, actually one of the longest possible within Denmark! If you have a Eurailpass or similar, avoid connections using any buses, as they will not be covered by the pass.

Travel Tips for Skagen

bike renting

by banshee11

what you really have to do is renting a bike. it's very comfortable to bike in northern denmark. it's very flat and if you're lucky the wind has the correct direction...
it's great to have a lunch at the baltic sea and after visiting some places watch the sunset over the north sea;)))

Buried Church

by Zandra

One of Northern Jutland's most popular tourist attractions "Den Tilsandede Kirke" (the church buried in sand dunes) is located not too far from Skagen.

The only part left of once Denmark's largest medieval church (built in the late 1300s) is the tower seen in this picture. The sand started drifted in the area around the 16th century and reached the church about a century later. This is when the nearby villagers began their struggle with nature; trying to keep the sand drifts from blocking the doorway of the church. However, in 1795 the church was closed by order of the Danish king. In 1810 it was torn down completely, but the tower was spared as a navigational landmark.

The view from the Gra Fyr

by barrikello

Climbing up the Gra Fyr - though a bit dangerous on its steep steps - is really worth. From there, it's possible to catch the curious dance of the two seas meeting at the very end of the Jutland Peninsula, given by the white foam that generates. On the opposite side, the coast line draws regularly, protected by the sea barriers till the town of Skagen.

The bus

by Maggies

If you are too lazy to go to the beach on your foot you can take a bus, actually it's a tractor with a wagon.
First of all, you have to leave the car on a parking - a bit far from the beach. It's not possible to drive any further. So there is the special bus making the beach tour.

skagen's lighthouses

by banshee11

even if you are not such a big lighthouse fan like i am, believe me, it's worth to make a tour to the lighthouses of skagen.
skagen has three lighthouses. the one on the front page of my denmark-page, the grey one, is the one which still is in commission. it's located on the beach of the baltic sea, outside skagen towards grenen. you should not miss it to go up there. it's wonderful, the view is great.
an other, an old lighthouse is the white one. standing outside skagen, towards grenen.
and the oldest of them, and the first light'house' in skagen is the 'vippefyret'. a bucket was filled with hot coals and turned around by man or animal.
