Travel Guide

Hundested

Enjoy a pleasant seaside atmosphere during a holiday or weekend in Hundested – a vibrant harbour and station town.

Hundested is a popular spot for boating, sport fishing and other water activities. Hundested originally got its name from the Danish word for the seals found along the coast.

Watch the morning catch come in at Hundested Harbour. If you're travelling with children, they will love the floating Discovery Platform, where they will get the chance to touch fish and trap crabs. Later, you can eat lunch in one of the excellent restaurants, such as in Halsnæs Bryghus, where there’s a beer for every taste. Then pay a visit to one of the small galleries or artisanal workshops.

The main street in Hundested features a statue of one of Denmark's proudest sons: the polar explorer Knud Rasmussen, who spent several years in Hundested. To pay tribute to his achievements, the house he lived in has now been converted to a museum (the Knud Rasmussen House) where you can learn about Rasmussen's expeditions to Greenland in great detail. The house is situated in charming surroundings close to Spodsbjerg Lighthouse.

A walking and cycle path, the North Coast path, runs from Hundested to other small towns along the Kattegat, including nearby Kikhavn, an idyllic old fishing village with half-timbered houses and farms. The route actually stretches all the way along the coast of North Zealand to Helsingør, a total distance of 40 miles. From Hundested Skanse you will enjoy a marvellous view over the sea and the landscape. A few miles from Hundested is Lynæs, an ideal surfing location.

Public transportation options are available if you have not hired a car for your holiday in Hundested. You can take a bus or train to Hillerød and see the portrait gallery in Frederiksborg Castle. You can also take a train to Copenhagen, putting the capital's international airport within reach.

In Hundested Harbour you can visit an exciting glassblowing studio, the Glass Smith, where you can watch glassblowers at work and maybe even find a unique gift to take home with you.

Great little spot for family getaway

3.1/5 (103 reviews)
Avoid this hotel, very poor.
"Very dated hotel in shabby condition, very low service level and zero hospitality from staff. Loud and smelly, not a good place to sleep. The price they charge and the value you get in return are completely out of alignment."
