If you want a popular and charming seaside town for the whole family, then Sæby will be a hit. Child-friendly beaches, cobbled streets and a great harbour area.

Sæby has everything the holidaymaker could desire. An idyllic town centre, arts and crafts, leafy woods, a lively harbour and broad, child-friendly beaches. It’s not without good reason that Sæby is one of Denmark’s most popular holiday destinations.

Tranquility

On the harbour, the ‘Fruen fra Havet’ stands proud, a double-sided figurehead in white concrete created by Norwegian artist Marit Benthe Norheim, inspired by the play of the same name written by Henrik Ibsen after a visit to Sæby. And around her is the harbour, with its genuine maritime atmosphere, fish restaurants and beach promenade.
The old town centre is a gem, with its cobbled streets and squares, old idyllic houses, local arts and crafts and the magnificent old watermill on Sæby Å. The town oozes tranquility, and the term ‘strolling’ really comes into its own.

Set in nature

Sæby nestles in glorious countryside, with the calm, blue sea on one side and the leafy green woods on the other.  One of the latter is Sæbygård wood, a popular outing for the locals and visitors. The wood is criss-crossed by signposted hiking, running and cycling routes, and is perfect for quiet contemplation and physical exertion.
