A Picture Perfect Port
This seaside town is one of Denmark’s main fishing ports, a cute little get-away destination with lovely beaches.
In the late 19th century the wild landscape and quality of light drew the attention of artists, who came to paint and take a break from the city. They became quite famous as the Skagen School, and some of their work is featured in the local art museum.
Each July the town hosts a major folk festival, with performances by bands from around the world – folk, folk rock, jazz, ballads, blues, and perhaps some never before heard new variations on the theme.Download An Explorer Guide +
