Skagen, Denmark Danish Crown Prince Frederik

11 of 12

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
