Transatlantic — Skagen; Waterfront and another Church


Skagen Havn (Port of Skagen)

On Monday I showed you the ‘new’ Skagen Luthern Church built in 1841. That church is located near the old town center. But there is another fascinating Luthern church here, located closer to Skagen Havn, which translates to Port of Skagen. This church is the Svenska Sjömanskyrkan i Skagen (the Swedish Seamen’s Church Skagen):

This church contains a nautically themed interior, as one would expect for a church geared toward the fishing community here:

The people who run this church are very accommodating, and encourage you to come inside to take photographs:

But let’s head over to the harbor and look around. Skagen Havn is the principle fishing port for the country of Denmark. As such, you can come here for lunch, where you’ll find several restaurants vying for your attention. I didn’t photograph our lunch here, but the fish and chips were quite good.

Did I mention Skagen is quite colorful? Here are some examples from the port area:
