The residence of the polar explorer Knud Rasmussen, now a museum

The name Hundested, the tiny town in the northern district of Zealand in eastern Denmark, originates from the adjoining Seal Reef. Its pretty harbour was first built at the end of the 19th century, and this town between sea and fjord, and is known for quiet beaches that are perfect to stroll.

Hundested’s attractions include Grønnessedyssen Karlstenen – one of the country’s largest megalithic tombs – and Knud Rasmussen’s House, the former home of the famous Polar explorer.[ReadMoreMob] Fishing is still an important local industry, which supplies the town’s restaurants with the freshest ingredients. Kikhavn, located 2 kilometres north, is another historic fishing village worthy of a visit, consisting of charming traditional farmhouses and a beautiful harbour.
