Are we allowed to walk to the edge of Grenen during winter ?

by Gemms

Am planning a trip to Skagen =)

I understand that 'Sandormen' services are closed during winter and that tis a long walk to the edge of Grenen. But suppose, we wanna walk (or drive our vehicle) to the edge of Grenen, would anyone know if we are allowed to do so ?

Thank you. *Sham

Yes, you are allowed to walk out there all year round. I would not take my own car - risk of getting stuck in the sand as well as you miss a wonderfull walk (even though it can be a bit rough in wintertime).

Indeed. A friend of mine did it this weekend :-)

Hi !

There are no restrictions possible, as there are no fences.
Sandormen goes a rather long way between the dunes, but if you go along the coastline, it is much closer.
At the parking, go to the right, there is a small hill with a grave, where you will see that special place in the distance. - maybe 20-30 minutes to walk to get there.
And this time of the year, you might have it all for yourself, without a bunch of people around !!

Denmark's Mini Desert

by Zandra

When approaching Skagen, one passes Denmark's mini desert Råbjerg Mile. It covers an area of about 2 km x 1 km and the highest point is approximately 35 m, thus making it the largest migrating sand dune in North Europe!!! The mile was formed more than 300 years ago and migrates a distance of 10-15 m per year.

If you plan to visit; remember to wear good shoes!!!

Skagen Vandtårn

by ValbyDK

Skagen Vandtårn (Water Tower) is located in the centre of Skagen - very near Michael and Anna Ancher’s House. The water tower was built in 1934 and there was used about 130000 red bricks to build the 34metres high tower. The water tank contained 150000litres of water.

The water tower was taken out of production in 1983 and today only used as an outlook point. The view from the tower is absolute amazing and this is a must in Skagen! The admission was only 10 or 20 DKK.

Desert in in the north.

by Caniko

Råbjerg Mile is the largest moving dune in Denmark.The wind moves it up to 15 m a year in a north-easterly direction. The dune leaves a low, moist layer of sand behind it, stretching westwards to Skagerrak, where the Mile was formed more than 300 years ago.

When you see it first you might think that you are somewhere in Africa. It is a lot of fun to jump there.

the town of skagen

by banshee11

skagen is a nice, not too big town. very special are the houses which make it so friendly. the houses are yellow with red tiled roofs and white laces.
also the port is very beautiful. there are nice, small shops, street-cafés and many art-museums with the famous paintings of the skagen artists. you can also visit the house where michael and anna ancher lived.
and don't miss to visit gamle skagen (old skagen) which is situated outside skagen in direction to the north sea.
