Earlier this month, access was granted to the new north breakwater at Port of Frederikshavn. The 1.8 km long breakwater is a unique opportunity for anglers, the people of the town and tourists. An offer which is not found in many other places in Europe. It is possible to walk all the way along the breakwater and to the north breakwater head, if you either want to fish, take a walk or just enjoy being close to the maritime environment. If you walk all the way to the breakwater head, you will be rewarded with a unique view across the port and Kattegat. Large binoculars have been installed on the breakwater head to enjoy the impressive view.

We would like to point out that the ongoing construction work on the area, means that visitors in the beginning must expect a considerably longer walk to the breakwater head. The access road consists of sand and gravel, and it is not suitable for people with limb impairments. Part of the area is still a construction site and such facilities as toilets and tables/benches have not yet been established. We therefore hope that the visitors show understanding and take this into account when they visit the area. Read more about parking, accessibility and code of conduct:

In connection with the opening of the breakwater, we have started a photo contest, where you can send us your best photo of a nice experience on the new breakwater – for example the fish caught, nature/the weather, people, animal life, the view or the maritime atmosphere.
