Plan journey

“Take the S-train to Hillerød St. and then change to the local train going to Helsingør via Gilleleje. The local train departs every 30 min. and the ride to Gilleleje is by the way very beautiful.”

Surrounded by beaches

Gilleleje lies at Sealand's northernmost point, with breathtaking views and beaches. The town arose from the sea and has retained a large part of the original fishing village’s cosy small alleys and idyllic houses.


Gilleleje Western Beach
“Take a swim at Gilleleje Western Beach – a stone's throw from the harbour – and finish off with delicious "fish and chips" at one of the many food stalls on the harbour.”
