Stand on one of the most northerly points of Denmark, with your feet in two seas at once, at Grenen. The point is lined with soft, white sand and offers expansive views of the waves created by the meeting of the two different waters: the Baltic Sea and the North Sea. Hop on a tractor leaving from the visitor center for a quick ride down to the beach, where you can watch the sunset or take a walk. Be on the lookout for the seals, whales, and orcas that are often spotted in the water. The area is very exposed to the elements and is known to be quite windy, so check the weather forecast ahead of time and prepare accordingly. Keep in mind that swimming is prohibited, as the currents are dangerously strong. Grenen is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , custom trip planner Edition.
Great place, must visit when in Skagen. You can park at the car park (look at my review of the car park in order to get instructions for parking) and walk along the beach. 20 minutes at normal pace... more »
A crowded but interesting walk along the beach to the top of Denmark. There were seals offshore on the Kattegat side and the World War II bunkers are also an interesting area to walk through. more »
One of nature's more rough places, but very beautiful. To see how the two Ocean's meet in real life is amazing, also to see the waves dancing can keep you there for hours. It can be very windy, so remember to bring a windbreaker.
Where 2 seas collide. North Sea meets the Baltic. Amazing spot to stand at. Windy🌪. It's a long walk to get there, put warm clothes on.
