Skagen is the northernmost town in Denmark, with the northernmost point in Denmark, Grenen. This is where Kattegat (waters between Denmark and Sweden) and the Skagerrak (part of the North Sea) meet.
It is a town where the main turnover is the fishing fleet and the connected industries - food industries and different industries supporting the fleet. The second source of income is tourism. There are 8,900 inhabitants in the town but in the main tourist season the population increases to 50-60,000 people.
The easiest option is following the E45 highway to Frederikshavn and take national road 40 from there. To the port of Hirtshals with ferry connections to Norway, catch road 597 Skagensvej/Hirsthalsvej and make a turn in the village Ålbæk.
