Skagen is a lovely quaint coastal town in Denmark. The people are lovely boasting some unusual shops packed with treasures. The handmade glass shop is 1 not to be missed

This was a cruise stop, very nice. Nothing opened early, so be patient. You can walk to pretty much everything, so if you're up to it and want to save a few Euro's, just walk. Do the Buried Church. Get a map and it's easy...More

The the town is very small it offers a lot. It is worth a day trip. Spend time on the beaches, enjoy the plethora of seafood selection, ice cream, and cafés. Take the train and enjoy the scenery.

As Brian told you the ship's dock is close to the town. Skagen is a nice, friendly, very little town with spectacular nature, small, beautiful, mostly yellow houses, museums and lots of shops and restaurants. It is quite... More
