The weather in Denmark can be tricky and nobody can guarantee sunshine and bathing weather.

This is particularly nice if you rent a home in the autumn or in the winter, where you can really enjoy the luxury of feeling the warm bubbles of the whirlpool, while the wind and the rain rage outside, or you could have a swim in the morning in the warm pool, while the landscape is covered in rime frost.

A little north of Skagen you can find something quite unique – you can stand at the northernmost point of Denmark, with your legs in two waters at the same time. At the Grenen, the Kattegat and the Skagerak meet and the waves cascade. The impressive sight of the two oceans attracts a lot of people every year.
The sand-covered church a little south of Skagen town is a popular excursion spot. The church dates back to the 14th century and was in service until late 1700, where drifting dunes slowly started covering the church and finally, people had to give in to the sand. Today you can only see the tower protruding through the sand. The church is a good example of what kind of forces of nature people had to live with in Northern Jutland for hundreds of years.
