Get a good feeling of the quaint and picturesque town of Skagen on this walking tour that takes you along the alleys of the old parts of town. Enjoy the characteristic ‘Skagen Yellow’ painted houses surrounded by white fences and neat gardens. Soak in the vibrant and atmospheric marina area visited by thousands of yachts each year as well as the charming, former fishmongers' wooden houses and the many seafood eateries. Locals as well as tourists enjoy sitting in the sun having a cool and refreshing beer at the popular spots along the waterfront. Continue the tour through the town passing Anna and Michael Ancher’s house and famous Brøndum Hotel, where many of the artists stayed and gathered. We will visit the Skagen Museum, the museum of the world famous Skagen painters. Marvel at the paintings, drawings, sculptures and handicrafts – by artists working in Skagen between 1870 and 1930, including the former Brøndum Dining Room, with paintings of the artists in the paneling, transferred from the hotel in 1946.
