Skagen, Denmark - Seaside Town

Our cruise ship arrived in Skagen, Denmark. It is a small town that is in the most northern part of Denmark.
The town was really quaint. A lot of the houses were the same yellow colour. We got a map from the tourist information point and then used it to walk around the town seeing the sights.



We made a short vlog about our time in Skagen which you can check out here.


The weather was great aside from it being cold and windy.

We were not exactly sure if this was a museum or not. There was some tourists taking pictures of these houses but we didn't see any signs and it wasn't on our map. Anyway, we decided to take photos in case the buildings were significant.


Wow what a cool windmill.



There was a small museum near the windmill too.

The beach in Skagen is beautiful. We walked to the beach to check it out for a bit.

It's hard to see but we wrote our blog url in the sand. Can you see our blog URL?


There's a lot of little museums in Skagen like this one.
Drachmanns Hus, Art Museum

Skagen is a pretty peaceful little town.

We made our way over to the city centre of Skagen.

Hulsig Kirke

Remember leash, remember bag
Pretty unique looking church.
There was a pedestrian zone with some shopping and things to see.

We saw some bizarre sculptures and a pretty nice high street.

Skagen is a brand of watch and they were offering some deals to people on the cruise ship. It kind felt like just about everyone walking around in the town was from the cruise ship.
We hung out in the park near a water tower for a bit. We had no idea what it was at the time so we had to google it later. The water tower is no longer in use.

Most of the houses in Skagen are yellow but there was a red one as well. Actually this was another little museum.

We headed back to the dock to get back on the ship as we had seen everything there was to see in Skagen.

Back on the cruise ship we took a picture of the buried church which we decided against walking to since it was a long walk in the opposite direction of everything else.

  3. What an adorable looking town. And don't you just love a town where you can see all the significant places while just walking around. I didn't see the ULR but maybe another pedestrian did. Wouldn't it be great to findout you got a new subscriber that way, anything helps right?

  4. I have recently become vegan and am worried it will be difficult to travel! Your blog has helped me realize that I can. Thank you! Great photos too.

    1. That's great to hear. We have lots of fun travelling as vegans. We travel from one vegan restaurant to another a lot of the time. There are quite a few vegan travellers out there sharing tip etc and facebook groups too.

  7. I love visiting seaside towns like this. I grew up near the ocean but haven't lived near one in ages. I'll have to see if I can add this one to my bucket list. I especially love taking tons of photos on our trips.

  8. I would sooo love to go to Denmark. It looks beautiful and it looks incredibly cold. I don't know if I would want to go in their coldest months but it is on my bucket list.

  9. Skagen looks absolutely adorable. It seems like a complete oxymoron - cold and inviting. It seems like a viking Mayberry. I love how bike accessible the entire town looks.

    1. It's a tiny town and flat so a bike is probably all you need to explore.

  10. WOW! You are so lucky to have gone to see a place that is so different than ours in culture and architecture and language. That is truly an adventure!

  13. This does look so very cool. I really do like the windmill that you have there. It looks like such a cool small town to visit.

  14. Sounds like you enjoyed a sweet visit. I like cruises because you get to see a lot in a short period of time economically. And it helps you figure out if you want to go back for a deeper exploration. Thanks for sharing!
