The city of Frederikshavn stands on the east coast of the island of Vendsyssel at the top of the Jutland peninsular in Denmark. 'Frederick's harbour' is an important ferry port with direct sailings to Norway and Sweden, there are sailings to Danish tourist islands too. One of the best is Hirsholm, a leafy island with old fortifications, a lighthouse, prolific birdlife, beaches and quaint cottages. Vendsyssel has plenty of tourist attractions that can easily be reached if you have a hire car. The area's highlights include seaside resorts like Sæby, Løkken and Lønstrup, and historic Hirtshals, with its enormous Nordsøen Aquarium.
Visitors who hire a car in Frederikshavn can tour the city's sights easily, the roads are generally clear and there is plenty of free parking. The city's history as a naval stronghold is shown at the Bunker Museum, which is housed in World War Two fortifications, and the round Gunpowder Tower, which dates back to the 17th century. Elsewhere, the modern Cloos Tower is a local landmark with great views over the city, while the Fiskerklyngen is a pretty cluster of historic fishermen's cottages. Don't miss Bangsbo Museum, which is housed in an old moated manor house with attractive gardens and an adventure playground.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
