Nowadays one of the busiest fishing ports in North Zealand, this traditional fishing village is renowned for its morning fish auctions. The port remains simple, sheltering numerous boats. 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.
