Breakfast consists of homemade bread, milk products, homemade jam, juice and meat in a cosy dining room.

Why Visit Strandby?

Strandby is located in the North Jutland (Nordjyllands) and is situated in the northernmost part of Denmark.

Strandby is an ideal location to visit and to explore as it allows you to experience a part of Denmark that offers much in the way of history and culture.

Guests enjoy the quaint charm that can only be experienced in such a town.

If you enjoy visiting towns and places that are still a "secret", then Standby is the place to visit.

About North Jutland:

Nordjyllands Amt (English North Jutland County) is a county on the Jutland peninsula in northern Denmark. It is the largest county in Denmark, but has a relatively low population. The county seat is Aalborg, the fourth largest city of Denmark.

Vendsyssel-Thy or Nørrejyske Ø (Danish for North Jutland Island) is the northernmost part of the Jutland Peninsula (Denmark) and the second largest island of Denmark. It is here that you will find the town of Strandby, Frederikshavn and Skagen.

About Frederikshavn:

Frederikshavn (originally named Fladstrand) is a municipality in the North Jutland County on the northeast coast of the Jutland peninsula in northern Denmark. Its name translates to "Frederik's harbour". The municipality covers an area of 180 km², and has a total population of 33,975 (2005).

Neighboring municipalities are Skagen to the north, Sindal to the west, and Sæby to the south. To the east are the waters of Ålbæk Bay (Ålbæk Bugt) in the north and the Læsø Channel (Læsø Rende), the strait that separates Jutland from the Danish island of Læsø, in the south. Beyond these lie the Kattegat, the strait that separates Denmark from Sweden.

Ferry service connects the municipality at the city of Frederikshavn to the cities of Oslo and Larvik in Norway, Göteborg, Sweden and to Læsø.

About Skagen:

Skagen (The Skaw) is a municipality in North Jutland County on the northernmost tip of Vendsyssel-Thy, a part of the Jutland peninsula in northern Denmark. The municipality covers an area of 143 km², and has a total population of 11,803 (2005).

The main town and the site of its municipal council is the town of Skagen.

Neighboring municipalities are Hirtshals to the southwest, Sindal to the south, and Frederikshavn to the southeast. The spit of land on which the municipality is located stretches out to the northeast surrounded by the following waters:

  • to the east is Ålbæk Bay (Ålbæk Bugt) and beyond that the waters of the Kattegat, the strait that separates Denmark from Sweden
  • to the west is Tannis Bay (Tannis Bugt) and beyond that the waters of the Skagerrak, the strait that separates Denmark from Norway

The two straits, which are part of the Baltic Sea, meet to the north of the municipality at the headland known as Grenen.

The area is extremely picturesque, and distinguished by its low, yellow houses with red tile roofs nestled into the beach areas. The impressive and wild landscape was largely formed by a severe process of desertification that hit the area in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Problems with moving dunes and desertification were brought under control in the latter 19th and early 20th centuries by large-scale plantations of grasses, bushes and fir trees. Two significant migratory dunes remain in the area, including the enormous Råbjerg milen.

The area is closely associated with the Skagen Painters, a community of artists (artist colony), who flocked to this picturesque, and then unspoiled, area in the late 1800's to escape the city and to record artistically a way of life they realized was soon to disappear.

The area continues to be a popular tourist destination visited by many people each year. A highlight of the year is the celebration of Midsummer Eve or St. John's Evening (Sankt Hans Aften) on the beach with blazing bonfire and song.

Other Sites and Places To Visit:

All of the following locations can be visited while staying at Strandby Bed and Breakfast.

Hirtshals:

The town of Hirtshals has a population of 6,665 (2004). Located on the North Sea, it is especially known for its fishing and ferry harbours.

It is the home of the North Sea Museum, one of Denmark's largest tourist attractions. The museum has one of the largest aquariums in Europe. It was built in 1984 and was expanded in 1998 with an oceanarium, an aquarium with 4.5 million liter water. The museum has in its collection 70 different species.

The town's 35 meter high lighthouse, Hirtshals fyr is a local landmark. Building was begun June 28, 1860, and it was first lit on January 1, 1863. It is constructed of red brick, and covered with Dutch tile.

Fishing plays a big role for the town, as does tourism and the renting of summer homes.

Brønderslev:

Located in the northernmost part of the Jutland peninsula in northern Denmark. The municipality covers an area of 317 km² and has a total population of 20,107 (2005).

Neighboring municipalities are Dronninglund to the southeast, Sæby to the east, Hjørring and Løkken-Vrå to the north, Pandrup to the west, and Aabybro and Aalborg to the south.

By January 1, 2007 Brønderslev municipality will cease to exist, as the result of Kommunalreformen ("The Municipality Reform" of 2007). It will be merged with existing Dronninglund municipality to form the new Brønderslev-Dronninglund municipality. This will create a municipality with an area of 630 km² and a total population of 35,320 (2005). The new municipality will belong to the new Region Nordjylland ("North Jutland Region").

Hjørring:

Hjørring is a municipality in North Jutland County on the west coast of the island of Vendsyssel-Thy at the top of the Jutland peninsula in northern Denmark. The municipality covers an area of 311.4 km², and has a total population of 35,475 (2005).

Neighboring municipalities are Sæby and Sindal to the east, Hirtshals to the north, Løkken-Vrå to the west, and Brønderslev to the south. Part of its western border is defined by the waters of Jammer Bay (Jammerbugten), and beyond it the waters of the Skagerrak.

The name Hjørring derives from the old Norse language and consists of two parts: Hjórr (which means a sword) and -ing (a typical ending of old Danish town names).

Læsø Island:

Læsø is the largest island in the North Sea bay of Kattegat, and is located 19 kilometers off the northeast coast of the Jutland Peninsula, the Danish mainland.

The municipality covers an area of 114 km², and has a total population of 2,145 (2005).

Ferry service connects Frederikshavn on the Jutland peninsula to the municipality at the town of Vesterø Havn.

Together with Anholt, Læsø belongs to the Danish "desert belt"; during the summer months there is so little rain that streams and ponds partly dry up.

In the Middle Ages the island was famous for its salt industry. The ground water can reach over 15 percent salt, and this was naturally concentrated in flat salt meadows during the hot dry summers. The final concentration, carried out in hundreds of salt kilns, consumed large amounts of wood. Eventually the island became deforested, sandstorms buried villages, and salt extraction was banned. Since the end of the 1980's it has been resumed on a small scale as an archaeological experiment and a tourist attraction.

Læsø is home to the Northern brown bee. The species is protected by Danish law which prohibits the import of other species to the island.

A particular feature of Læsø is its half-timbered houses thatched with seaweed.

Ålborg:

The city of Ålborg (Aalborg) is the fourth largest city in Denmark— after Copenhagen, Aarhus and Odense. It is the location of Aalborg Air Base, an important base of the Danish air force, and is the seat of a Lutheran bishop.

Railway connects Aalborg with Hjørring, Frederikshavn, and Skagen to the north, and with Aarhus and the lines from Germany to the south, as well as to Copenhagen in the east over the island of Funen.

The harbour is good and safe, though fairly difficult to access.

Ålborg traces its history back over 1000 years. It was originally settled as a trading post, because of its position on the Limfjord. The sites of what were two settlements and a visible burial ground can be seen on Lindholm Høje, a hill overlooking the city. The size of these settlements emphasize the significance of this place as a crossroads.

The first mention of Ålborg under its original name Alabu, is found on a coin dated to 1040.

During the Middle Ages, Ålborg prospered and became one of the largest cities in Denmark. This prosperity was further enhanced when in 1516 Ålborg was granted a monopoly in salt herring.

Ålborg received town privileges in 1342 and the bishopric dates from 1554.

During the German invasion of Denmark in 1940, the Ålborg Aerodrome was captured by Nazi paratroopers very early in the action.

The annual carnival takes place the last weekend in May.

During the carnival, Ålborg receives about 100,000 people. Friday “The Battle of Carnival Bands” is an exciting and colourful evening with processions through the city when all the participating groups compete to be the leading carnival group.

The carnival itself is the following Saturday – on this day the city centre is full of life. The streets are filled with gaily dressed people who are in a real spring mood. In Kilde Park concerts are given from various stages all day to midnight. The Carnival ends with a grand firework display on the harbour.

The old castle Aalborghus Castle (Aalborghus Slot) and some picturesque houses of the 17th century remain in the center of the town. The half-timbered (bindingsværk) castle was built in 1550 by King Christian III, and was converted to government administration offices in the 1950's.

Budolfi Church cathedral dates mostly from the middle of the 18th century, while Vor Frue Kirke (Church of Our Lady) was partially burnt in 1894. The foundations of both churches are from the 14th century or earlier.

There are also an ancient hospital and a museum of art and antiquities.

On the north side of the Limfjord is Nørresundby, which is connected to Ålborg by a road bridge, an iron railway bridge, as well as a motorway tunnel running under the Limfjord. Nørresundby is the site of the Lindholm Høje settlement and burial ground from the Germanic Iron Age and Viking times. There is also a museum on the site.

Aalborgtårnet. A tripod tower erected in 1933. The tower still gives an exquisite view over the fjord and the city from its 105 m rise over the sea level.

Seværdigheder:

STRANDBY's historie går tilbage til bronzealderen men i det 17. århundrede begyndte fiskeriet at tage fat, der dog var et supplement til landbruget. Den første egentlige havn blev grundlagt omkring 1895 og er siden blevet udvidet adskillige gange. Byen har i dag ca. 2500 indbyggere, hvoraf de fleste er beskæftiget i forbindelse med fiskeriet.

HAVNEN er hjemmehørende for ca. 50 kuttere, og her landes og sælges hovedparten af de berømte "Frederikshavnerrødspætter". I den store auktionshal kan salget af fisk og skaldyr følges hver morgen kl. 7. Gå en tur på havnen og oplev et spændene og levende miljø, hvor havnen nu også besøges af flere og flere lystsejlere.

KIRKER. Strandby kirke fra 1966, og et godt eksempel på moderne arkitektur i pagt med den lokale tradition. Opført af arkitekten Jakob Blegvad, med en tydelig inspiration af arkitekten le Corbusiers kirke i Ronchamp (Frankrig). Metodistkirken fra 1961 er hjemsted for landets største metodistmenighed, stiftet i 1928.

STRANDEN nord for havnen har vi en fin og børnevenlig badestrand -"blåt flag"- , der strækker sig hele vejen til Skagen. Syd for havnen byder Strandby på helt specielle oplevelser for naturinteresserede i de lave strandenge , hvor et rigt fugleliv kan studeres fra et fugletårn. Også her er der en fin sandstrand. Kysten nord og syd er velegnet for surfere.
