In a country that boasts 5,000 miles of coastline, it stands to reason that some people choose to vacation around Skagen so they can spend their days relaxing on the beach. The shoreline at Skagen is particularly lovely, windswept and desolate. The Grenen sandbar above Skagen is Denmark’s northernmost point. Many people find the light here extraordinary. It is so unusually beautiful, in fact, that a 19th century school of artists known as the Skagen Painters once concentrated all their efforts here. It’s possible to view their work at the local museum. Also of note are the Råbjerg Mile, Denmark’s biggest moving sand dune and a church that is entirely buried in sand except for the barely visible steeple.
