Gilleleje harbour is a great place to visit
Please visit Gilleleje harbour all year because it is a great experience whether it is cold winter or hot summer.
We are fortune to have a beautyful harbour in Gilleleje where fishermen are still able to work for a living. It is a great (and for free) experience to see the fishingboats enter with all the seagoals flying above. Sometimes you are able to buy fish directly of the smaller boats. To do that you have to have cash. Just ask :).
The harbour is big and has a great atmosphere. During summertime many tourists, both foreigners and Danish, sail to Gilleleje which means you can see many beautyful boats. In high season lots of activities take place e.g. kayaking, stand up paddling and rowing in long boats (which I do two times a week).
There are both shops, restaurants and cafés at the harbour to enjoy 🙂 If you want to know more about the restaurants or cafés please go my other posts. This one is about Café Vaabengaard which is located at the harbour. Follow this link.
I hope to meet you at the harbour someday!
If you want to know more or just want to comment on something feel free to do so.
