Frederikshavn will host the Men’s U19 World Championships 2023
Known to most as a traffic hub, but Frederikshavn has a lot more to offer. An unusually high number of shops and restaurants, and even the only palm beach in Denmark!
Located in the Nordjylland region on the northeast coast of the Jutland peninsula in northern Denmark, it’s name translates to “Frederik’s harbour”.
The town has a population of just over 22,000 people and is an important port with its ferry connections to Gothenburg in Sweden. The town is well known for its fishing and industrial harbours. Frederikshavn’s oldest building, Fiskerklyngen, is originally from the mid-16th century,
Frederikshavn has its own very special atmosphere thanks to its maritime history, idyllic setting, and the ferries plying back and forth to Sweden, Norway and Læsø. The vast number of visitors to the town (around five million a year) have nurtured a shopping mecca, including one of the country’s longest pedestrian streets. Nature also plays a role, with a wealth of activities and things to do on land and sea.
World’s most northernly palm beach
It all started in 2004 with 30 palm trees. There are now 100 in the white sand of Denmark’s most exotic beach. On a summer’s day, when the sun beams down from a cloudless sky, you could almost think you were in the Caribbean. But this is the Kattegat and Denmark at their very best.
