A church which has been buried in sand is not common! The tower still stands but the rest of the church is gone. If you go here, remember to go behind the tower where you will find markings from where the rest of the church...More

This is a church that has been covered by shifting sand dunes, only the tower is now visible. It is interesting but not something that I would rush back to see. There is very little to be in all honesty other than the tower, which...More

The Sand Church is located a little outside Skagen and you have to walk for about 500 m along a path from the parking lot to get to the church. The name is a little misleading if you are expecting a church covered in sand,...More

We went for the 2,4 km walk route around the Church and the flag Hill. The walk and nature around was nice and even on a windy day you can do this, as the trees will provide you with shelter. The Church isn't surrounded by...More

Good attraction, all well described on posters around the church, a must see attraction when one is at Skagen

Because we had fairly little time to visit Skagen, one of us went to the Skagen Museum while the more sporty part of our travelling duo did some pedalling in a surprisingly severe wind and passed astonishing sites like the ‘Tilsandede Kirke Sct. Laurentii’, some...More

An interesting icon from a bygone age and a testament to the shifting sands of fortune (and in reality) of the north of Denmark. Not much to see apart from the shell of the old church but the history that surrounds it adds to the...More

the drifting sand forced the government to tear down this church and today the tower is left as a warning for the seafarers and a sign of the power of nature. the surroundings are also nice nature.

If you are expecting an old church, you'll be dissapointed, if you are expecting a beautiful building, you'll be dissapointed. This building is both compelling and fascinating because of what it is and what isn't there. It's just a plain tower with a harbour view...More

The short walk from the parking area is nice. The church looks really cute from the distance. While it doesn't seem like much, you can enter the church from the front entrance and go up for a little view over the area. Be careful though,...More

Depending on where your ship is. You cannot walk from Skagen harbor to the church in 1 hour. Same thing for the Grenen where the oceans meet. But both have lovely works.
