 Welcome to Halsnæs.

Here you can experience two charming port towns, an authentic seaside resort and a town with a long industrial history. Hundested has a good mix of intact maritime atmosphere and modern art and design, making the city an exceptional experience. Lynæs is the hip idyllic fishing village and paradise for windsurfing.

Liseleje is a cosy, relaxed seaside resort where families have spent the summer for generations. Here you get a beach holiday like in the old days. Frederiksværk is the story of Denmark's first industrial city, of dynamite, gunpowder and bullets, and in many places in the city, history can be experienced up close.

Today, Frederiksværk is a lively trading town with a rich cultural life and good opportunities for excursions in the surrounding nature.
