Where the Two Seas Meet

Dec 8, 2007
Skagen is a projection of land and a town in Region Nordjylland. Skagen is considered the boundary between the Skagerrak named after Skagen and the Kattegat.
Skagen is the at the northern tip of Jutland.

The prime attraction of Skagen is to experience the meeting point of two seas and the current here are strong.

Also in this port, Danish precision is manifest in the art of watch making. The Skagen watches include high quality, uniquely designed watches configured by well-known Danish designers. The town is known for its manufacturing of wrist watches, many of which feature a thin width design.

Skagen is a small town and it has plenty of lovely houses. Lots of people go there to spend their vacations, at the end of Denmark and far away from the noisy streets. You may choose among several large camping-sites and plenty of Bed and breakfast and a few hotels. Skagen makes a perfect day-trip from places like Aarhus or any other place in the north of Denmark. Many of the buildings in Skagen are painted in a special type of yellow the so called Skagen-yellow.

Sonderstrand is a sandy, family beach, close to town, featuring the bascule light as an attractive land mark. The painters of Skagen found inspiration for many of their famous paintings here. The beach is car free. This is also where Skagens Midsummer Eve bonfire is lit every year. The beach has been awarded the Blue Flag for water purity and environmental standards.

The Teddy Bear Museum is a private collection and it is Denmarks only museum dedicated exclusively to the teddy bear. Here you can learn about the history of one of the worlds most enduringly popular toys, and see various historic and unusual examples. You can also see teddy bears in a variety of different environments.

Den Tilsandede Kirk used to be the largest Danish church in medieval times but it had to be closed in 1795 because the dunes had reached the entrance-gates of that church and blocked it. It is known as the Buried Church. The sand drift started around 1600 and reached the church at the end of the 18th century. The congregation had to dig their way into the church when they wanted to attend the services. The struggle against the sand continued until 1795 when the church was closed by royal decree. Today, only the tower is visible.
