Gilleleje Havn

Reviewed By StephenCLG - Birmingham, United Kingdom

Great marina with good facilities and restaurants. Very busy. Marina quite tight even when bringing in a 34 foot yacht, particularly with cross winds. Would definitely visit again but maybe on a busy weekend arrive in plenty of time to review options.

Gilbjergstien

Reviewed By Anne S - Oslo, Norway

Lovely coastal path from Gilleleje. You can bike, go jogging or walk. It's paved so it's easy accessible. Bikers must yield so it's a relaxing walk. The scenery is great and there are a couple of public entrances to the beach. Enjoy!

Fyrhistorisk Museum Paa Nakkehoved

Take a walk in the beautyful nature surrounding the lighthouse and visit the exhibition that describes Danish lighthouse development from the 16th century to modern automation. You can go to the top and enjoy the magnificent view of Gilleleje.

Reviewed By Steen Withen N - Helsingoer, Denmark

Located at the end of a scenic walk (Fyrstien) the museum is an attraction which must be seen. Very interesting and a good view from the top of the lighthouse. Do not forget your camera !

Fyrstien

Reviewed By Birgitte L - Gilleleje, Denmark

Fyrstien strækker sig fra Gilleleje Hovedgade lige efter kirken og fortsætter gennem villa- og sommerhuskvarterer afvekslende med strandparken og skovstykker. Her er maget smukt og der er mange steder fantastisk udsyn over Øresund over til Kullen i Sverige.

Skibshallerne Gilleleje - Museum Nordsjaelland

How did people live, work, go to school and vacation in the fishing village of Gilleleje? Visit The Ship Hall Museum and experience a mid-1800 house. See the old fishing boats and learn more about the dangerous life at sea. A classroom from 1865 takes you back to school more than a hundred years ago. Visit the small vacation home from the 1950’s and 60’s – could you enjoy your vacation in a 10 m² cottage? Skibshallerne (The Ship Halls) are located in the middle of old Gilleleje surrounded by a beautiful old orchard. Enjoy cake and coffee in the garden before you venture out to explore the sights.

Great tour. There were no exhibits about the heroics of the Danish resistance and their assistance to the Jews in WWII, but the guide knew many of these stories from when he interviewed fisherman when he was in high school in 1967.

Soborg Kirke

Reviewed By Birgitte L - Gilleleje, Denmark

Det er vildt at finde en så enorm kirke i en lille bitte landsby, imponerende er den bare. Størrelsen hænger sammen med at Søborg Slotsruin (hvor Margrethe den 1. boede) og Esrom Kloster begge ligger ganske tæt på.
Et smukt kirkerum med fremragende akustik. derfor bliver den også brugt til koncerter fra tid til anden.

Det er en rigtig fin biograf vi har fået. der er god lyd, plads til benene, boks til drikkevarer og guf ved hver plads. Bygningen forskønner ikke Gilleleje, men den er flot, når man kommer indenfor.

Soborg Kanal

Reviewed By Birgitte L - Gilleleje, Denmark

Man kan starte turen bag Gilleleje Station og spadsere helt ud til slotsruinen. Det er en herlig tur til dels langs kanalen og med marker og bondegårde langs stien. Det meste af ruten er asfalteret, så det er også en fin cykeltur.

Der er ikke så meget ruin tilbage - gravelystne konger har været forbi! men nok til man at sætte fantasien i gang. Den ligger så smukt med udsigt over hele Søborg Sø. Tager man turen fra Gilleleje via kanalstien er det en rigtig fin adgang til ruinen

Reviewed By Adele H - Copenhagen, Denmark

This place is much more in order than other flee markets - it's indoor, somewhat organized and plenty of space so you can actually see everything. They have furniture, kitchenware, DVDs, books, music, decoarations, etc etc - you can find anything
