First and Foremost the Sea
North of Frederikshavn is the Strandby fishing hamlet, which has been favoured by
nature. First and foremost the sea. The sea provides the livelihood for the town's
leading industry, the fishing industry. In the summer the fishing harbour of Strandby
is open for yachtsmen who visit this charming town in large numbers.
The Strandby fishing hamlet
In Frederikshavn, there is a very large church, known as Frederikshavn Kirke, that
was built in 1892. The church is very nice.
Fiskerklyngen was the original Frederikshavn. The living conditions of the population
through the past 2 centuries can be studied by a visit to Sognefogedegården
(parish community centre) where the livingrooms, kitchen, milk cellar, workshop and
stabels have been preserved in their original state.
We also have a bronze sculpture called Tordenskjold. He was a very famous soldier
from Norway, but as a young man, he moved to Frederikshavn . He lived in the 17th
An Old Soldier
On the outskirts of Frederikshavn lies Bangsbo, an area of natural beauty with a
wealth of history and culture to offer the whole family. Here you can find peace
from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and let the senses take over for a while.
Bangsbo Museum the beautiful manor house provides the setting for Bangsbo Museum
with its permanent exhilbititions on the civic and local history of Frederikshavn,
the ocupation, maritime history and the unique Ellingå ship. Bangsbo Botanical
Gardens is in the old english-inspired park system. The beautiful colours of the
garden will take you back to days gone by ,when the authors Herman Bang and Gustav
Wied used to walk there.
