Streets of Skagen
Favorite thing: Look at the photo, can you see it? Can you see what it is that is so attractive? If you can, then add Skagen to your plan of cities to visit in Danmark.
This photo of Anna Ancher's painting, "Gade i ?sterbyvej" ca. 1915 is a reminder of the feeling I have of Skagen. This beach community is very different from the beach towns along the coast of California and with the difference comes a sense of the suspension of time that is appealing to me. Yes, my visit was outside of the normal tourist months, so possibly Skagen would feel and look different in July, however, I doubt that more people and more activity would obsure the essence of this village in my mind.
At least the part of town I saw had very little that hinted at existing in a modern time.
- Arts and Culture
- Museum Visits
Favorite thing: 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;)))
Skagen, on the northern tip,...
Favorite thing: Skagen, on the northern tip, is a great little village. I recommend a night or two at the hostel there. Be sure to walk up to the sea where the Kattegat and Skagerrak come together. Legoland in Billund should be in your itinerary if you're in Jutland. Århus has a festival at the beginning of September and it's pretty wild.
Fondest memory: The waitress in Fredrikshavn... amazing!
