The Skagen Coast

The Skagen Coast

The wild and windswept Skagen peninsula in northern Denmark is a beautifully rugged and unspoilt coastline. With remote sandy beaches, cosy villages and fresh seafood restaurants, this is the Scandinavian seaside at its finest! As well as being Denmark's leading fishing port, tourism is a vital part of the local economy, with over 2 million visitors a year.

The light in the area, and stunning natural landscapes, attracted a group of impressionist painters to visit Skagen every summer from the 1870s until the turn of the 20th century. They included the artist P.S. Krøyer, whose famous painting Hip, Hip, Hurrah! shows several of the artists celebrating together in a summer garden scene. 

Skagen's economy has been based on the fishing industry for generations. A fish auction is held at dawn in the harbour, where local fisherman sell their wares. The harbour is also host to many yachts in the summer months. It also maintains an artistic reputation, with a strong arts scene and many galleries in the small town.  

As you would expect, seafood is a staple of the restaurant scene in this region. Freshly-fished and cooked to traditional Scandinavian recipes, restaurants including the Skagen Fiskerestaurant help to maintain Denmark's burgeoning culinary reputation.
