Skagen

Resplendent Skagen, its rows of terracotta-roofed houses and painted timber buildings, glows against the deep blue-grey of the North Sea. A magnet for painters and poets over the years, Denmark’s northernmost town is famed for its fresh air and postcard location between the Jutland beaches and the dunes. One aged lighthouse stands as testimony to the town’s long held connection to the sea, while oodles of glass, pottery and craft boutiques along the beachfront rows and Sankt Laurentii Vej street have cemented Skagen as a town for artsy types and freethinkers.
