Trip to Skagen

May 23rd, 2009 by UFO in Denmark, Traveling

My week of exploring Denmark continued on Wednesday. Our plan was to go to Skagen, the northernmost point of Denmark, and then to Ålborg on the way back. The journey lasted five hours and we had to change train twice. The last train is operated by a private company, so our InterRail tickets were useless for that.

We planned to arrive to Skagen, take a bus to the mentioned point of interest and then go back. Unfortunately, there was a typical Danish surprise – the buses are going only in summer time (no comment). So instead of sparing time by taking a bus, we walked over four kilometres to get there.

On the way we stopped at the old lighthouse and climbed all its stairs up. The view was beautiful, you can see a lot of pictures in the gallery.

I found Skagen very interesting and could recommend a visit. It was a pity, that we did not have time to see anything from Ålborg (except the train station), maybe some day else…
