We have spent a few days st the very top of Denmark – in beautiful Skagen.
This is a very special place that I highly recommend. Skagen has a beatiful scenary, small streets full of shops, great restaurants and wonderful museums.
We also went to Grenen where two oceabs, Skagerack and Kategatt, meet. A fascinating place.
Around 130 years ago Skagen was a colony for artists, painters, writers and composers. They came to Skagen from all over Scandinavia and Europe, to meet peets – but also due to the very specal light.
A lot of famous painters also made Skagen an exiting place in the 19th and 20th century. The most famous being P.S Krøyer, Michael Ancher and Anna Ancher.
The painters and cultural people all lived at Brøndums Hotel in Skagen, the place where we stayed this weekend.
In the Skagen museum you can see remarkable paintings from these years.
There are so many wonderful thongs to see in Skagen.
I have been in Skagen before but this was the best visit so far. We had great weather and a very nice time.
If you have chance – go there.
