    You can see it on gables, on buildings, on stairs, on the tiles in the pedestrian zone and many other places.

    We are talking about culture at eye level - poetry in Frederikshavn.

    The poetry park is dynamic and grows through dialogue with the city's citizens and sponsors.

    The poetry park creates joy and evokes smiles on the lips.

    The works create disturbances in the urban space - and make you stop - and set thoughts in motion.

    The poetry park is mainly concentrated in the center of Frederikshavn, but you can also see the work "Proud of my city" at the foot of Pikkerbakken by Møllehuset in scenic Bangsbo.

    Have a very nice trip.

    Lighthouse Hirsholm

    7.46 km

    The islands lie about 7 km north east of Frederikshavn in shallow water between Napstjert in the north and Bangsbo in the south. They were formed by blue clay and sand deposited on reefs formed in the Ice Age. The islands consist of Hirsholm and Græsholm with several islets and reefs.

    The islands are a paradise for birds, protected by law since 1929. Outside Hirsholm, all traffic is forbidden. In addition to the rare species, there are colonies of seagulls on the islands, which are also used as resting-places by migrant birds.

    The inhabitants.

    Potsherds and flint stones are proof that the islands were inhabited in prehistoric time. The maximum population of 225 was reached in the 1870's. Until 1583 the islands were Crown property, then followed a number of different noble owners. In 1884 the islands were bought by the Danish Navy and are now owned by the Ministry of Defence.

    The church and school.

    The church dates from 1641. Before this, the locals had to use the church in Elling on the mainland. Cases of children dying before baptism, and bodies waiting for up to five weeks before burial, resulted in a living being established on the island.
    Nobleman Otto Skeel built an oak half-timbered church. This was later bricked and the porch added. The islands are now part of the Parish of Frederikshavn and a few services take place each year.The first school was started in 1641, but in 1970 the islands became part of the city of Frederikshavn and the school was closed.

    Trade.

    From the 17th to 19th century, fishing was the main occupation. Ship-piloting, once a source of income, was discontinued in 1916, partly due to the opening of the Kiel Canal. Ship wrecks have also given extra income, and smuggling was not entirely unknown. The lighthouse and mail boat also gave employment. The 1883 lighthouse is part of the home of the lighthouse keeper, now the island's supreme authority. 

    From 1760 to 1909 the island had a combined inn and general store, the only shop the island has seen. The mail boat started in 1782 and there are now three weekly sailings from Frederikshavn. 

    Dogs and cats are not allowed !

    Den Tilsandede Kirke - The sand buried church

    30.83 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.

    Skagens Museum

    32.21 km

    Today Skagen’s Museum contains around 1900 sculptures, drawings and paintings mainly made by artists who visited Skagen in the period from 1870-1930. Although you might not be particularly interested in art, you should not miss a visit to this museum, when you are in Skagen. Not only will you find world-class art, but also the atmosphere of Skagen, which has made it the city it is today. Read below about the history of the museum, about the painters of Skagen and get a virtual tour thanks to the Google Art Project.

    History

    Skagen’s Museum was founded in the dining hall of Brøndums Hotel in 1908 by the painters Ancher, Krøyer and Tuxen along with hotel owner, Degn Brøndum and pharmacist Victor Christian Emanuel Klæbel. The purpose was to exhibit the works of the Skagen painters and raise funds for the construction of a museum. At first, the technical college was used for exhibitions, but after the painter, Krøyer died in 1909, his residence was put to use. In 1919, Degn Brøndum donated the old garden of his hotel to the museum. The construction of the museum began in 1926 from blueprints by the architect Ulrik Plesner. The opening of the museum took place on the 22nd of September 1928 with a collection of around 325 works - many which had been donated by the artists themselves.

    The museum in Skagen was expanded several times as a result of the great interest for the painters of Skagen. In 1930, Plesner drew a suggestion for an expansion, but it wasn’t until 1982 that they became a reality. Since then expansions to the museum have followed in 1989, 2004 and in 2014 renovations and expansions started once again.

    The painters of Skagen

    “Skagensmalerne” is the name of the artist colony, who settled in Skagen in the 1870s to portray the life in Skagen, the rough living conditions of the fishermen and the grand nature with the special light, which makes both Skagen and North Jutland a popular destination. The painters brought their brushes and easel into the nature and painted what they saw. The style, also called realism, influenced all of Europe in this period and has helped with the steady flow of artists, which is why we today speak of the painters of Skagen as an artist colony.

    Among the most known painters from Skagen is P. S. Krøyer, who painted the world famous “Hip Hup Hurra” painting for a birthday in Skagen, Anna & Michael Ancher, Laurids Tuxen, Christian Krohg and Holger Drachmann.

    Presentation in English

    Skagens Kunstmuseer provide brochures and written information in English, and around the museum signs and displays are partly in English. Also, guided tours can be arranged to accomodate English speaking guests.
