Dronningmølle bay stretches in a gentle curve between Hornbæk and Gilleleje, giving room to a wonderful beach. The beautiful sandy beach is perfect for long relaxing days with sunbathing for the whole family. The name Dronningmølle, The Queen’s Mill, originates from a watermill built in 1588 on a site owned by Queen Sofie, the wife of King Frederik II. When you visit Dronningmølle make sure also to see the museum.
Munkeruphus is an architectural gem built in 1916 in colonial style with facades of wooden cladding and a high, shingled roof. The listed country house is a today a charming art gallery with changing exhibitions of art, craft, design etc. during the year. On the ground floor there is a cosy little café which serves light lunches, homemade bakery, tea, coffee, wine etc. Munkeruphus is surrounded by a wonderful nature park with old trees and rhododendrons, sloping down to the Øresund.
There are a lot of events in North Sealand. You can find them here.
Today, Dronningmølle is best known for its brilliant wide, sandy beach. The water is shallow which makes it a child friendly beach for the kids to romp about – and a great place for building sandcastles at the water’s edge. Beach boys and girls have plenty of opportunity to show off, but if you prefer a little privacy it’s easy to find your own little spot for sunbathing in the sheltered dunes along the beach. A lifeguard takes care of your safety in the high season. The beach is wheelchair-accessible from the parking lot at Dronningmølle Top Camp.
