There are more Frederikshavn attractions than just those you will see in the tourist brochures. You will just have to take the path less traveled and search out some of the attractions below. There is something for everyone, including sportsman, children, the golfer or maybe just some pampering and downtime.
Need some pampering? Health and Wellness Spas
For the ladies, one of the top Frederikshavn attractions is to visit one of the well known relaxing spas and resorts, where one can spend a few hours or days relaxing, getting pampered. Men are welcome too, but I know it is not too popular with the "dudes".

How about Swimming?
One of the best Frederikshavn attractions is to go swimming!
There are 30+ excellent beaches, ranging from shallow, child friendly to beaches perfect for bird watching, kite sailing or fishing. Get a list from the local tourist office and decide which is best for you and your family.
P.S. When on the beach, always look for the Blue Flag, which is a sign that the beach is clean and safe. Also look for the beach marker on the beach that you are going to be using. Make a note of it, so in case there is an emergency, you can call, give your bech marker location for the authorities to get to you quicker.
The signs are near the dunes, are rectangular green signs with white numbers and are usually very visible from the beach.
There are also indoor swimming pools for those days when the beach may not be ideal.

at the local tourist office. They can supply you with guides and rules.
Can't get enough water? Go Canoing, boating, kayaking
All sorts of boating activities are available along the coast and there are plenty of places that will not only teach, but also rent equipment, so it is not necessary to bring your own boats along.

You may even come across some other Frederikshavn attractions around the harbour.

Arhus or Aarhus (originally named Aros) is located in central Jutland and, as the second largest city in Denmark, it has a lot to boast about.
