The Dronningmølle bay stretches in a gentle curve between Hornbæk and Gilleleje, giving room to a wonderful beach. 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.
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.
