I was on the business trip with customer and after having all the meetings decided to go for some sightseeing. My colleagues took us to the Morsgaard Museum which is like 15 min drive from city center. And it’s impressed me a lot. First of all architecture. The museum itself is a very modern building. Then the exhibition. It’s a great mix of multimedia (including VR) and standard Exponates. Very interesting but also time consuming. Just 1-2 hours will be not enough at all to go through the exhibition. So it’s worth planning in advance for the whole day.

Grenen Skagen

Reviewed By peterodl - st.paul,mn

I heard from family about Grenen a few years before going out there myself. I stayed in Skagen, rented a bicycle and rode out to the Grenen parking lot in about only 5 minutes with the help of a helpful wind. Riding back, the wind was very unhelpful.
Parking my bike at the parking lot racks, I followed the paths over the sand dunes and past the World War 2 bunkers onto the beach. Blasted by sand carried on the stiff wind, I made my way down to the end of the beach and got to see something I hadn't before....two seas meeting making diagonal waves.
I stayed for a bit, taking photos and video all alone for nearly 10 minutes before other people finally showed up.
Quite an interesting place that I might like to visit again during a warmer season, instead of late April, the mid 30s Fahrenheit temps and a 30+mph wind.
Best of all, it's free to visit if you walk. There is a sand crawler bus that takes people out to the point but there's a small cost for that service.

Faarup Sommerland

Reviewed By Ole-Martin L

This is our 2nd time in Fårup, and both times has been awesome! Top score to the staff, and to the variety in the park. Here's something fun for everyone to enjoy!
Last time we were in Fårup was summer of 2016, and that time we used a lot of time on the rides. This time around we're enjoying the treasurehunt and paddlingboats, train and buffet in addition to the rides. No stress - just enjoying just about everything:-)
We ate at the pizza and pasta buffet and the food was good. Nothing extraordnairy but given the fair price we paid we couldn't expect it to be. (380DKR for two adults and a 10 years old boy. It also included soda)

+ The Fårup-app
+ The friendly staff
The Fårup-app is actually a big plus, it makes it a lot easier to plan what rides to ride next.
NB!! We have not been to Aqualand, so this score is only the amusementpark.

Rabjerg Mile

Reviewed By lmsk2014 - Helsinki, Finland

Like a giant, slowly moving sandbox this is an experience for all ages!
The sand is in constant motion, you can observe the beautiful patters the wind makes, climb - and slide down the soft sand dunes, and enjoy a wonderful experience.
PRO TIP: in windy weather, protect your eyes with sunglasses; however, leave your expensive glasses at home: the sand will scratch and ruin them! Also prepare to have sand all-over your camera...

Royal Jelling

Jelling is one of Denmark's most important historical sites. In 1994, the monuments were included on UNESCOs list of historical monuments that are particularly worthy of preservation, the World Heritage List (thus joining, for example, Stonehenge and the Great Wall of China). Two huge mounds and two large rune stones, with a whitewashed church midway between them - what links these impressive monuments from the past? The permanent exhibition centre, Royal Jelling, is closed but will reopen in the summer of 2015, including a roof Terrace from which you can view the area with the two rune stones, the ship setting and palisade. The exhibition covers a number of the mysteries associated with Jelling. Was it King Gorm the Old that archaeologists found beneath the floor of Jelling Church? Was he really first buried in the northern mound in accordance with pagan custom? And why does the largest rune stone depict both the Midgard serpent and Christ on the cross? Who lies buried in the world's largest ship setting? The exhibition also shows how the finds at Jelling have expanded our knowledge of Denmark's Viking heritage and how the story of Thyra has become a saga of almost mythical proportions. Jelling con¬tains much of what can be regarded as Denmark's national identity. Admission to the exhibition is free, although there is a charge for guided tours on various themes.

This is an excellent museum. Although it does not have much by the way of objects inside, it is mostly graphical and interactive, it nevertheless does an excellent job explaining the fascinating Viking history of the site and it's significance for the establishment of christianity in Denmark. Entrance is free and the text is in Danish and English. There is a small cafe on site (which has some gluten-free options).
There is an excellent viewing platform of the roof showing the mounds and the church which are literally just a stones throw away. The famous stones themselves are located next to the church in glass cases.
There is free car parking next to the site.

Rubjerg Knude

Reviewed By Superkatt - Sweden

We learned about this place by Reading the guidebook about the Northern Denmark, and decided to see it because of its unique and picturesque setting.
We traveled by car, and found our way very easy due to good road signs on the road nr 55.
The large parking is arranged by the road, there are toilets here as well. The entrance road to the Lighthouse is beginning from the parking, it is a gravel/sand road and there is some 1-1,5 km you need to walk to reach the seashore. Road has a slight elevation all the way, and the last 200-300 meters you need to manage a real climbing up the sand dunes to reach the remains of Lighthouse itself. In the time of our visit a strong wind appeared, and I experienced this climbing as hard with lots of sand in the air.
Lighthouse itself was built in 1899 some 200 meters from the waterline, but now the land it is standing by is disappearing by approaching sea and in some 10-15 years it is calculated to fall and the land it stands on to be consumed by sea.
There is not much left of the original Lighthouse, the mirrors on the top are still in place. It is allowed for now to climb the inner spiral stair to the top platform of the building, and views towards the sea, along the coast and to the ruins of abandoned village by the foot of the Lighthouse are stunning.
Wind on the shore was so strong that it could support a human to lie down and rest on it.

Lokken Beach

Reviewed By hantsdee - Hampshire, England

We visited at the beginning of August whilst staying locally at a friends beach hut.
The beach is amazingly clean, the sand lovely and clean and perfect for sandcastle building. The water is good for paddling and bathing and you can even drive your car down onto the sand.
A lovely clean and quiet area to enjoy the Danish seaside - there are changing rooms just up at the cafe and bins there too.
Highly recommend if you're in the area.

Blaavand Beach

Reviewed By FiligreeBells - Melbourne

One of my favourite Beaches on the west coast. A long idyllic beach, with close access to shops, restaurants and a fantastic lighthouse as a lookout point. The 'horse' bunkers on the beach are a particular favourite of mine: a little bit of history transformed into beauty.
