The living harbour
The scent of tar, fish and sea floats on the breeze when you take a walk on Gilleleje Harbour. The large, beautiful gulls sweep low through the air or stand on the pier eyeing the tourists curiously, as if to say: We live here. What are you doing here?
Gilleleje Harbour is a living harbour. The charming sounds of the fishing boats mingle with the sounds of knocking and hammering in the shipyard, and the chatter of tourists adds to the music of the place as the day progresses. There is always something going on. The harbour is always alive. From sunrise to sundown.
