Welcome to the Top of Denmark
The fullscreen this week is one of my own.
The place is the most Northern spot in Denmark (besides Greenland)
It is called Grenen (The Branch), just north of Skagen the small village in North Jutland where the famous Danish painters Ancher, P.S. Krøyer and our national poet Holger Drachman lived.
It started in the middle of the l9th century and is called the Danish Golden Age. The light at this place is beautiful and that was one of the things that attracted the artists.
The famous hotel Brøndum in Skagen was one of the places where some of the artists and poets lived.
When you walk out on the sandbank at Grenen you can actually place your right foot in the Skagerak and the left in the North Sea.
And that is what thousands of tourists do. Skagen is visited by 2 million tourists who travel to the place each year.
