Rågeleje is one of the traditional historic seaside resorts on the North Coast. Here you’ll find stately old summerhouses on the slopes high above the coastal road, and the beach is lined with huts featuring the boldly coloured stripes that are so characteristic of Rågeleje.

The coastal road follows the beach for a long way, and Rågeleje is probably the place in North Sealand where you can drive closest to the sea and truly experience the wind and weather. When it is very windy, the area has plenty of kites and windsurfers to watch.

In addition to the beach, Rågeleje is surrounded by wonderful nature. On the heather-clad hills at Heatherhill, the sheep graze during the summer season, and there are lovely walks here with amazing views as a reward. In winter, the hills are perfect for sledging in the snow. And year-round, the slopes facing the water are a prized destination for paragliders.

Just south of Rågeleje is Maglehøje with 10 burial mounds from the Bronze Age, where a 1.3-kilometre path takes you to them all.
