The harbour town, between sea and fjord, which is completely unique.
At the entrance from the Kattegat to Isefjord and Roskilde Fjord lies the charming harbour town of Hundested. The city is completely unique – a mix of the modern cultural harbour and active commercial harbour, where boats bring in the daily catch of fresh fish.
Here you’ll find a modern brewery with excellent beer, workshops with innovative glass art and furniture design that resonates worldwide alongside a traditional boatyard, net maker and a blacksmith’s forge. It’s this fun mix of intact maritime atmosphere and modern art and design that makes Hundested a very unique experience for visitors.
Visit polar explorer Knud Rasmussen’s House in the exceptionally beautiful nature near Spodsbjerg Lighthouse, and be sure to visit Lynæs, a paradise for wind and kite surfers.
And where does the city’s name come from? Once upon a time, there was an extensive stone reef here where a large number of seals lived and bred. Many Danish kings and their hunting parties would come to Hundested to hunt seals – hence the name (sælhunde = seals + sted = place).
Visit polar explorer Knud Rasmussen’s House, now a living museum located in the midst of the dramatic nature near Spodsbjerg Lighthouse. Or take a stroll around the harbour, soak up the atmosphere and visit the Sand Sculpture Festival and the many galleries, workshops and shops.
There are three harbours in Halsnæs: Hundested, Lynæs and Frederiksværk. There are also two ferry connections: Between Hundested and Rørvig in Odsherred, and between Sølager and Kulhuse in Hornsherred.
There are many beautiful places to visit in the area, but we particularly recommend that you stop by one of these small but very scenic villages.
