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).
