About the Area

Treat yourself to a stay in Hundested

Hundested Harbour is centrally located between the sea and the fjord, on the edge of Zealand. Visit the harbour and experience an authentic and vibrant maritime environment with plenty of activities for the whole family, open workshops, a maritime atmosphere, and fresh fish.

Hundested Harbour is both a modern cultural harbour and an active commercial harbour, combining to give the harbour its unique ambiance. The harbour is a fun blend of old and new. Explore a coastal bistro kitchen, a well-maintained brewery, and a diverse selection of excellent eateries and fish restaurants – all alongside classic boatyards so authentic that you might get blackened fingers just by walking past.

Activities at the harbour and in the town

Open workshops and activities on the quay offer visitors numerous delightful experiences throughout the year.

In the mornings, local fishermen bring in their catch, and later, the atmosphere is filled with vibes from galleries, dining spots, glassblowing, a brewery, a nature playground, mini-golf, and an adventure platform for children.

Visit one of the excellent eateries in the town or at the harbour, experience the many small concerts that emerge at the harbour throughout the year, and enjoy the abundance of herring on Herring Day.

The annual sand sculpture festival, featuring a new theme each year, is always worth a visit and attracts people from near and far.

The Folkely Festival is a relatively new event that embraces the entire town every August. Three days filled with music, talks, and art. The space between the town and the harbour becomes a vibrant festival area, the shipyard transforms into an art and design market, and many of the town’s shops, galleries, and eateries offer special events and exhibitions.

As something entirely new, the association “Oplyst” is actively transforming the town and harbour into a light festival with plenty of lights and events during the darkest months of the year.

Beach, water, and culture

There are abundant opportunities for a wonderful day at the beach. Next to the harbour is Trekanten, a lovely small bathing beach with plenty of fine sand. The beach holds a “blue beach” designation, indicating that both the environmental and hygiene conditions are excellent.

Experience the beautiful nature on a trip to Spodsbjerg, a cliff between Hundested and Kikhavn. Here, you’ll enjoy a fantastic view of Hunderevet and can visit Knud Rasmussen House, the memorial for Knud Rasmussen, or witness the Spodsbjerg lighthouse illuminating the cliff at sunset.

If you head in the opposite direction, you can walk along the beach all the way to Lynæs. Idyllic Lynæs is one of Denmark’s oldest fishing villages and, at the same time, a vibrant surfer’s paradise.

Hundested is worth a visit for all ages.
