Cozy inn close to Skagen

Right on the top of Jutland, not far from where the land meets the two seas on Skagens Gren, the holiday town Ålbæk is situated approximately halfway between Frederikshavn and Skagen. The hotel in Ålbæk dates way back to 1818 when the hotelkeeper also supported himself by fishing and farming. Ålbæk was at that time a small fishing hamlet, and the idyll, peace and tranquillity are intact. The authentic fishing village atmosphere with the cosy small streets and the harbour is simply the perfect setting for splendid holidays.

Aalbæk Badehotel is an ideal place for a holiday in a cosy and relaxed atmosphere. In the taproom they serve good Danish courses which can be enjoyed in both our cozy rooms, and when the weather permits, the nice  court. On the menu you can find dishes such as the classic Viennese schnitzel and roasted plaice.

Today Aalbæk Badehotel is owned by Ulla Mosich who fell in love with the place when she came here for the fist time in 1984. She decided that she would like to be a hotelkeeper in Ålbæk, and she has never regretted this decision. The location of Aalbæk Badehotel is namely unique as it is situated close to Skagen, the sea, plantations, golf courses and many other experiences. But there is absolutely no harm in idling, just going for a walk along the beach or enjoying the nature , she says.
Thanks to her efforts, the beautiful old hotel has been thoroughly renovated in recent years, and today it is a very fine example of modern seaside hotel culture combining good food and comfortable rooms.


The old hotel from 1818 has recently been renovated with 59 modern and smokeless double rooms, all of which with bath, toilet, TV and free internet. In most rooms there is the possibility of an extra bed. It takes approximately 10 minutes to walk to the lovely beach at Kattegat, and some of Denmark s most beautifully situated 18-hole golf courses are located within a radius of a few kilometres. For the children there are, among other things, a playground and lots of green areas, and in the garden the guests have two pétanque courses at their disposal.

    Simons Raalling - Egnssamling

    0.24 km

    It is the oldest house in Ålbaek, which is a city with 1.800 inhabitants. The construction of the house is very interesting, as it was built very wood sustainable. This was due to a catastrophic lack of timber, which plagued the area after the ravages of the sand drifts.

    The timber which was used to construct the house, was almost exclusively collected on the beach. It was most likely from shipwrecks, which were common for this area at the time.

    In the early 1700s, which where when the house was built, there wasn’t growing any trees in the area, that could have been used for timber.

    One of the last wellknown owners of the house had the surname SIMON, and RAALING is the term for a farmhouse to a farm, which SIMONS RAALING was until the thirties, when the farm buildings were demolished.

    The house where inhabited until 1986 – the last 100 years of the Simon family.

    In 1991 the house was threatened by foreclosure and a following demolition. Through gifts from people in Ålbaek, a group of local citizens succeeded in buying the house and starting the construction of a museum.

    At several places on the Odden, the wind has blown shifting sand away and exposed naked stony plains.

    This landscape is very special for the region.

    In Aalbæk Klitplantage lie Nordre and Søndre Stenslette. These stony plains were created by sea banks being washed up along "Oddens" coast, which lay here about 4.500 years ago.

    Bunken Klitplantage

    5.5 km

    Bunken Klitplantage was established in 1887. Only the multi-trunked mountain pine, brought back from Central Europe mountains, had proved applicable under these very difficult circumstances.

    At that time, foresters had a good deal of experience in how to carry out such an operation, as comprehensive planting had been completed in dunes and areas of drifting sand from the start of the 1800s.

    Ålbæk Klitplantage

    2.06 km

    Ålbæk Klitplantage mostly consists of scotch pine but also has some mountain and Austrian pine.

    In places with slightly better soil, Sitka spruce, which originates from the West coast of North America, has been planted. In a few places of the dune plantation, birch, and oak grow. The pine trees allow light to get to the grass and moss-covered plantation floor. In the fall months, different mushrooms grow from the plantation floor.

    Over the next years, the forest district will plant more leaf-bearing trees on the plantation and older trees will be allowed to decay naturally. In the plantation, you can find areas with stony plains, a landscape uncommon to the area. The plantation also has a rich bird life and hearing the nightjar on a quiet summer evening is a very special experience.

    Råbjerg Mile

    6.08 km

    Info about Råbjerg Mile

    The migrating dune, Råbjerg Mile, is about 1km wide and 1km long, it is made of roughly 3,5 million m3 sand, and is 40 meters high. Each year the dune moves around 15 meters towards the Northeast, closer to Grenen, the top of Denmark. Attempts of afforestation did not stop the migrating dune, which is expected to cover the main road to Skagen in a century or two. Once the dune reaches an area with trees or other plantations, it takes approximately 40 years for the tree to re-emerge on the other side of the dune. The same goes for the "small lakes", indentations caused by the varying groundwater level. These lakes are in the beginning poor on nutrition and vegetations but after some time the plants are coming back.

    Råbjerg Mile on sand migration

    Behind the “mile” it leaves a small and moisty layer of sand that extended west out to Skagerak where Råbjerg Mile was formed more than 300 years in a landscape called Råbjerg Stene.

    The whole area near Skagen was affected by sand migration with sand coming from the west. Entire areas were covered in sand as the dunes formed and therefore destroyed the opportunity to cultivate the land. The inhabitants were forced to move after a difficult fight with the sand, where the sand-covered church is a proof of the fight and struggle. The church was in the end swallowed and covered by the sand. Today, only the church tower is visible and there is planted lyme grass and conifers to slow down the sand migration.

    Despite this, the area is nowadays under protection and owned by the state after strong protests from for example Jeppe Aakjær who was dissatisfied as the plantations (which should stop the sand migration) destroyed many beautiful nature areas.

    Attention: While hiking through Råbjerg Mile there can be a risk of walking into quicksand!

    Den Tilsandede Kirke - The sand buried church

    15.63 km

    In the dunes west of Skagen stands the tower of the old Sct. Laurentius Church, today known as ‘The Sand buried Church’. For four hundred years it gathered the congregation, until drifting sand started to block the road and cemetery, and in 1795 the congregation were forced to cease worship, and the church was closed.

    Sct. Laurentius was a magnificent church with impressive furnishings, of which now only the altar's two heavy candlesticks remain. They stand on the altar of the 'new' church, Skagen church. Beneath the surface there is still remnants of the church's foundation and floor, as well as a baptismal font that was not - like the rest of the furniture - removed and sold.

    Recent studies around the 200th anniversary of the church's closure have helped mark the church's floor plan, including the location of the nave and sacristy, which can be seen behind the tower. Red poles mark the ground plan, while fascines mark the known parts of the old cemetery wall. Many questions are still unanswered, which probably is part of the fascination of the church.

    Laurentius (Saint Lawrence) is the patron saint of this and many other west Danish churches. He was the protector of the sailors and the poor and suffered martyrdom on a gridiron. The gridiron can be found in Skagen city coat of arms together with the words " Vort håb til Gud alene/ Our hope to God alone"

    In the summer Skagen Church arranges outdoor service every Thursday evening at 19.30 from mid-June to mid-August at the Sanded Church with wind music.

    400 m from the sand buried church there is a parking lot with a playground, tables, benches and toilets - and during the summer you will find a kiosk, from which tickets are sold to get into the church tower.

    Skagen Kirke

    17.47 km

    Skagen Kirke (church) was built in 1839-1841.

    In 1909-1910, the relatively young church was redesigned by Ulrik Plesner,- and Thorvald Bindesbøll designed the interior ornamentation.

    Again in 1989, the church underwent comprehensive restoration by Chresten Justesen, a Skagen architect. The artist Arne L.Hansen contributed with retelling the Easter event in front of the altartable, while Niels Helledie created the distinctive crucifix on the church's north wall and the crucifixiongroup on the altartable in 1994.
