The northernmost point of Denmark, Grenen is also sometimes called 'the branch' in English. Essentially it's a strip of sand that gets longer every year because of the sand that the tides of the two seas bring up to the surface.

The water here isn't safe for swimming due to powerful currents but watching waves of two giant bodies of water meet is quite remarkable. In addition, you can put your feet into the water at the end of the sand strip and stand in the North and Kattegat seas at the same time.
