For when the crowns come off—royal vacations worthy of a king.

Skagen, Denmark Danish Crown Prince Frederik

12 of 11

Crown Prince Frederik and his family spend their summer vacations in Skagen, Denmark’s northernmost town on the Jutland coast. Visitors are drawn to this tiny fishing port, with a population of just over 8,000, for its picturesque wild landscape of sand dunes, charming local houses painted yellow with red-tiled roofs, and a Nordic light that so enthralled painters that the town became an artists’ colony in the late 19th century. See their works in the Skagen Museum, and stay next door at the historic Brøndums hotel. —Yvonne Yorke
