Gilleleje The Essential

This traditional fishing village, nowadays one of the busiest fishing ports in North Zealand, is renowned for its morning fish auctions. On the laid-back port, multi-coloured boats bob around next to modern yachts. Lovely cottages have been carefully restored, adding to the charm of the place. To the west of the village is a path leading to the top of a hill (Gilbjerg Hoved) that looks out over the sea. The philosopher Søren Kierkegaard often came here to reflect and admire the view of the Kattegat and the Swedish coast.
