    Frederikshavn is a good base for exploring the northern part of Denmark, and I went on two daytrips from Frederikshavn... Læsø (90 minutes each way by ferry) and Skagen (30 minutes each way by train)...

    Check out my pages about Skagen and Læsø if you want to know more...

    Frederikshavn Kirke (the Church of Frederikshavn) was built in the end of the 19th century in Roman style, and looks quite impressive from the outside... It is shaped like a cross with arms of equal length, has four minor spies, and a tower reaching the height of 56.5 metres...

    The inside of the church is not as impressive as the outside, but there are a couple of interesting details... The altarpiece is done by Michael Ancher (a famous artist from Skagen) and shows Jesus meeting the disciples at the Sea of Galilee... The font is made in Sct. Petersburg and carved in one piece of marble... There are three model ships (according to Danish customs) and one is a model of a modern cargo ship built at the former Frederikshavn Shipyard...

    Krudttårnet (the Powder Magazine) was built in 1690, but not on its present location... It was moved 270 metres in 1974 when the shipyard in Frederikshavn needed more land. It lasted 13 months to move the tower, and the transport was done in one piece!!! The Powder Magazine was originally part of a strategically important fortress in Frederikshavn, and used for storing of powder and as a platform for guns and cannons. The old fortress was used by Tordenskjold (a Norwegian/Danish sea-hero) during the Great Nordic War in the 18th century, and later during the War of Gunboats against England in the beginning of the 19th century...

    Today, the Powder Magazine houses a Museum of Military History, a nice little museum exhibiting weapons from the 17th century...

    Just newly opened sushi restaurant in the middle of Frederikshavn. Karma is a very nice place, designed in a classic japanese style. I had already eaten when we got there, but my photographer is still saying "mmm... ah... mmm... so good" the day after he had the sushi plate, so I'm pretty sure he thought it was a really good.

    I had two beers (yes, Tuborg beer taste much better while in Denmark!) and "the dessert of the day" which was ice cream sourbet. Yummy! My friend tried the local japanese beer, and was very pleased with that too, saying it tasted like San Miguel, although more sweet.

    Good service, fair prices, open until 11pm. Also got some good tips from the waiter where to head off for some nightlife.

    Favorite Dish: Well, I only had the dessert, but according to my photographer the sushi was even better! He paid 168 DKR (16,5 euro) for the plate with sushi, and that was a full one. Beer costed 22 DKR, and the dessert was 58 DKR.

    It takes about 3 hours to get across from Goteborg in Sweden to Frederikshavn in Denmark by the ferry Stena Danica

    It costs about 985 SEK for a car with 5 passengers.

    There are slots machines (jackpots) for those with spare cash to spend, and video games for the younger ones.

    For hungry passengers, there are several restuarants onboard.

    The express ferry takes about 2 hours and cost more.
