Skagen, the home of Anna Ancher [1]

Skagen is one of the most idyllic towns of Denmark

Skagen - land of light

Skagen is famous for its spectacular light, and for centuries artists have been drawn to the place to capture the incredible colors and nature there, including famous Danish painters Anna Ancher and her husband Michael Ancher.

The impressive sand dunes, the charming miniature yellow-painted houses and the spectacular light are still found in Skagen, making it a favorite summer vacation spot for the many out-of-towners who continue to return every year.
