Skagen Grey Lighthouse is an international experience center where you can follow migratory birds on their long journey.

Fyrvej 36

9990 Skagen



Skagen is a hotspot for bird migration in Europe, and in Skagen Grey Lighthouse you get an insight into why some birds migrate thousands of kilometres between nesting sites in the North and their winter quarters in the South.

On interactive screens in the centre you can join the migratory birds on their journey.

You get ring-marked with a bracelet as your entrance ticket, so that you can communicate with the interactive screens.

You choose which bird “you want to be” and get lots of knowledge about the bird.

Finally, there is the opportunity to go up in the 46-metre high lighthouse – Denmark’s second highest.

You can also visit the centre’s café and shop.
