The northern part of Denmark is very special. The colorful coastal nature, the idyllic fishing villages and cultural and gastronomic experiences make North Jutland a completely magical place to be.

Aalborg

Aalborg is Denmark's fourth largest city and is approximately a 45-minute drive from Frederikshavn. In recent years, Aalborg has been transformed into a vibrant and cultural hotspot, and like any other city, Aalborg offers experiences for both children and adults - only with a large dose of North Jutland charm.

Explore the world of animals in Aalborg Zoo, get close to the magnificent architecture of the Utzon center, jump in the water in Vestre Fjordpark or take a quiet day along the streets in the city center. Here are shops, cozy restaurants and historic buildings side by side.

Skagen

You will find Skagen on the northernmost tip of Denmark. The area is especially popular in the summer, when people flock to coastal hotels, holiday homes and the vibrant city life in Old Skagen.

Skagen is also known for its characteristic yellow houses, which have been home to many artists over time, as the natural light in the area is very special. This is clearly seen in paintings by the famous Skagen painters.

In Skagen, everything is arranged for a wonderful holiday with art, cozy shopping in the main street and raw nature all the way along the coast!

Vesterhavet

The west coast runs from Skagen over scenic Thy and continues down to the Wadden Sea and South Jutland. Charming small towns, each of which tells a little Danish history and cultural heritage, are located in a row along the coast. Here you will also find Klitmøller, called Cold Hawaii, which attracts surfing guests from all over the world, and the Limfjord where you can fish mussels and oysters of the best quality.

If you visit Ringkøbing, you will gain insight into a piece of Danish cultural history. Here you can take an evening walk with the city's guards, who tell stories from "the time it once was".

Nature

North Jutland is known for its beautiful, and at times, wild nature. Visit the iconic Rubjerg Knude Lighthouse, or stand with one leg in each sea on Denmark's northernmost point, Grenen, where the Skagerrak and Kattegat meet. Råbjerg Mile, Denmark's largest hiking dune, is also on the top list of places you must visit.

In North Jutland, you can also go on a trip in Denmark's largest protected nature area, Lille Vildmose, or set sail on a safari to the islands of Livø and Mors in the Limfjord. And on Læsø you can join in when the famous Læsø salt is to be sewn in the traditional way.
